Testosterone is a crucial hormone for men and plays an important role throughout the male lifespan. Most of a male's testosterone is produced through the testicles. Also called the male sex hormone, testosterone starts playing its part during puberty.
When a male goes through puberty, testosterone helps males develop:
As boys turn to men and men grow older, testosterone levels deplete naturally. Sometimes, events like injuries and chronic health conditions like diabetes can lower testosterone levels. Unfortunately, when a man loses too much T, it results in hypogonadism. When this happens, the testosterone must be replaced, or the male will suffer from symptoms like muscle loss, low libido, and even depression.
TRT is exactly what it sounds like: a treatment option for men that replaces testosterone so that your body regulates hormones properly and restores balance to your life. Also called androgen replacement therapy, TRT alleviates the symptoms that men experience with low T.
Originally lab-synthesized in 1935, testosterone has grown in popularity since it was produced. Today, TRT and other testosterone treatments are among the most popular prescriptions in the U.S.
Without getting too deep into the science, TRT works by giving your body the essential testosterone it needs to function correctly. As the primary androgen for both males and females, testosterone impacts many of the body's natural processes â especially those needed for overall health. For example, men with low T are more prone to serious problems like cardiovascular disease and even type-2 diabetes.
When your body quits making enough testosterone, it causes your health to suffer until a solution is presented. That's where TRT and anti-aging medicine for men can help. TRT helps balance your hormones and replenish your depleted testosterone. With time, your body will begin to heal, and many symptoms like low libido and irritability begin to diminish.
For men, aging is the biggest contributor to lower testosterone levels, though there are other causes like obesity, drug abuse, testicular injuries, and certain prescribed medications. Sometimes, long-term health conditions like AIDS, cirrhosis of the liver, and kidney disease can lower testosterone levels.
When a man's testosterone levels drop significantly, it alters his body's ratio of estrogen and testosterone. Lower testosterone levels cause more abdominal fat, which in turn results in increased aromatase, which converts even more testosterone into estrogen.
If you're concerned that you might have low T, you're not alone. Millions of men in the U.S. feel the same way. The best way to find out if your testosterone is low is to get your levels tested.
For sustainable testosterone replacement therapy benefits, you must consult with hormone doctors and experts like those you can find at Global Life Rejuvenation. That way, you can find the root cause of your hormone problems, and our team can craft a personalized HRT plan tailored to your needs.
One of the most common reasons that men choose TRT is because they have lost that "spark" with their partner. It's not easy for a man to hear that they're not performing like they used to. Intimacy is a powerful part of any relationship. When a once-healthy sex life dwindles, it can cause serious relationship issues.
The good news is that low libido doesn't have to be a permanent problem. TRT and anti-aging medicines help revert hormone levels back into their normal range. When this happens, many men have a more enjoyable life full of intimacy and sex drive.
Weak erections â it's an uncomfortable subject for many men in the U.S. to talk about. It's even worse to experience first-hand. You're in the midst of an intimate moment, and you can't do your part. Despite being perfectly normal, many men put blame and shame upon themselves when they can't achieve an erection. And while the inability to perform sexually can be caused by poor diet, obesity, and chronic health conditions, low testosterone is often a contributing factor.
Fortunately, weak erections are a treatable condition. The best way to regain your confidence and ability in bed is to speak with your doctor. Once any underlying conditions are discovered, options like TRT may be the best course of treatment.
Do you find it harder and harder to work out and lift weights in the gym? Are you having problems lifting heavy items that you once had no problem lifting?
Recent studies show that when men are inactive, they lose .5% of muscle strength every year, from ages 25 to 60. After 60, muscle loss doubles every decade. While some muscle loss is common as men age, a significant portion can be tied to low testosterone levels. When a man's T levels drop, so does his muscle mass.
Testosterone is a much-needed component used in gaining and retaining muscle mass. That's why many doctors prescribe TRT Martinsville, NJ, for men having problems with strength. One recent study found that men who increased their testosterone levels using TRT gained as much as 2.5 pounds of muscle mass.
Whether your gym performance is lacking, or you can't lift heavy items like you used to, don't blame it all on age. You could be suffering from hypogonadism.
If you're like millions of other men in their late 20s and 30s, dealing with hair loss is a reality you don't want to face. Closely related to testosterone decline and hormone imbalances, hair loss is distressing for many men. This common symptom is often related to a derivative of testosterone called DHT. Excess amounts of DHT cause hair follicles to halt their production, causing follicles to die.
Because hair located at the front and crown is more sensitive to DHT, it grows slower than other follicles and eventually stops growing permanently. Thankfully, TRT and anti-aging treatments for men in Martinsville, NJ, is now available to address hair loss for good.
While it's true that you can't change your genes, you can change the effects of low testosterone on your body. Whether you're suffering from thinning hair or hair loss across your entire head, TRT and other hormone therapies can stop hair loss and even reverse the process.
Also called "man boobs," gynecomastia is essentially the enlargement of male breast tissue. This increase in fatty tissue is often caused by hormonal imbalances and an increase in estrogen. For men, estrogen levels are elevated during andropause. Also called male menopause, andropause usually happens because of a lack of testosterone.
If you're a man between the ages of 40 and 55, and you're embarrassed by having large breasts, don't lose hope. TRT is a safe, effective way to eliminate the underlying cause of gynecomastia without invasive surgery. With a custom HRT and fitness program, you can bring your testosterone and estrogen levels back to normal before you know it.
Decreased energy was once considered a normal part of aging. Today, many doctors know better. Advances in technology and our understanding of testosterone show that low T and lack of energy often go hand-in-hand.
If you're struggling to enjoy activities like playing with your kids or hiking in a park due to lack of energy, it could be a sign of low T. Of course, getting tired is perfectly normal for any man. But if you're suffering from continual fatigue, a lack of enjoyment, or a decrease in energy, it might be time to speak with a doctor.
Whether you're having a tough time getting through your day or can't finish activities you used to love, TRT could help.
A study from 2011 showed that men who lose a week's worth of sleep can experience lowered testosterone levels â as much as 15%, according to experts. Additional research into the topic found almost 15% of workers only get five hours of sleep (or less) per night. These findings suggest that sleep loss negatively impacts T levels and wellbeing.
The bottom line is that men who have trouble sleeping often suffer from lower testosterone levels as a result. If you find yourself exhausted at the end of the day but toss and turn all night long, you might have low T.
TRT and anti-aging medicines can restore your T levels back to normal, which can help you sleep better with proper diet and exercise.
You're feeling down about everything, and there's no solid explanation for why you're in such a crummy mood. Your daily life is great and full of success, but you can't help but feel unexcited and unmotivated. If you're experiencing symptoms like these, you may be depressed â and it may stem from low testosterone.
A research study from Munich found that men with depression also commonly had low testosterone levels. This same study also found that depressed men had cortisol levels that were 67% higher than other men. Because higher cortisol levels lead to lower levels of testosterone, the chances of severe depression increase.
Depression is a very real disorder and should always be diagnosed and treated by your doctor. One treatment option gaining in popularity is TRT for depression. Studies show that when TRT is used to restore hormone levels, men enjoy a lighter, more improved mood. That's great news for men who are depressed and have not had success with other treatments like anti-depression medicines, which alter the brain's chemistry.
Ask anyone over the age of 50 how their memory is, and they'll tell you it wasn't what it used to be. Memory loss and lack of concentration occur naturally as we age â these aren't always signs of dementia or Alzheimer's.
However, what many men consider a symptom of age may be caused by low testosterone. A 2006 study found that males with low T levels performed poorly on cognitive skill tests. These results suggest that low testosterone may play a part in reducing cognitive ability. If you're having trouble staying on task or remembering what your schedule is for the day, it might not be due to your age. It might be because your testosterone levels are too low. If you're having trouble concentrating or remembering daily tasks, it could be time to talk to your doctor.
Why? The aforementioned study found that participating men experienced improved cognitive skills when using TRT.
Even though today's society is more inclusive of large people, few adults enjoy gaining weight as they age. Despite their best efforts, many men just can't shed the extra pounds around their midsections, increasing their risk of heart disease and cancer.
Often, male weight gain is caused by hormone imbalances that slow the metabolism and cause weight to pile on. This phase of life is called andropause and happens when there is a lack of testosterone in the body. Couple that with high cortisol levels, and you've got a recipe for flabby guts and double chins.
Fortunately, TRT treatments and physician-led weight loss programs can correct hormone imbalances and lead to healthy weight loss for men.
Sermorelin is a synthetic hormone peptide, like GHRH, which triggers the release of growth hormones. When used under the care of a qualified physician, Sermorelin can help you lose weight, increase your energy levels, and help you feel much younger.
Human growth hormone (HGH) therapy has been used for years to treat hormone deficiencies. Unlike HGH, which directly replaces declining human growth hormone levels, Sermorelin addresses the underlying cause of decreased HGH, stimulating the pituitary gland naturally. This approach keeps the mechanisms of growth hormone production active.
Benefits of Sermorelin include:
Ipamorelin helps to release growth hormones in a person's body by mimicking a peptide called ghrelin. Ghrelin is one of three hormones which work together to regulate the growth hormone levels released by the pituitary gland. Because Ipamorelin stimulates the body to produce growth hormone, your body won't stop its natural growth hormone production, which occurs with synthetic HGH.
Ipamorelin causes growth hormone secretion that resembles natural release patterns rather than being constantly elevated from HGH. Because ipamorelin stimulates the natural production of growth hormone, our patients can use this treatment long-term with fewer health risks.
One of the biggest benefits of Ipamorelin is that it is suitable for both men and women. It provides significant short and long-term benefits in age management therapies, boosting patients' overall health, wellbeing, and outlook on life. When growth hormone is produced by the pituitary gland using Ipamorelin, clients report amazing benefits.
Some of those benefits include:

Standard deductions, tax rates and limits for retirement plan contributions are among the IRS changes for the 2023 tax year that should weigh heavily in clients' tax planning, advisors say.
The top tax rate remains 37% for single filers whose incomes are greater than $578,125, or $693,750 for those who file jointly. Other new rates for single filers include 24% for incomes starting at $95,375 ($190,750 for married joint filers); 32% for incomes starting at $182,100 ($364,200 for married joint filers); and 35% for incomes starting at $231,250 ($462,500 for married joint filers).
The 2023 standard deduction for couples will be $27,700, an $1,800 increase. For single filers and those who use the "married filing separately" status, the deduction will be $13,850, up $900. For those filing as "head of household," the standard deduction will be $20,800, up $1,400. The foreign earned income exclusion also rises to $120,000, up from $112,000 for 2022.
“If your income in 2023 is the same as 2022, you will pay a bit less but solely because your wages/income are not receiving positive adjustments,” said Morris Armstrong, enrolled agent and RIA at Armstrong Financial Strategies in Cheshire, Conn. “If your income is up the average 4% to 5%, your effective tax will be somewhat similar because your tax brackets are just filling up more slowly than in 2022.”
Frank Corrado, managing director, principal at Robertson Stephens Wealth Management, Holmdel, N.J., added, “Other benefit-related increases indexed to inflation would apply to wealthy taxpayers, but with a smaller impact, including increased parking subsidies, flexible spending accounts and medical savings accounts."
How should wealthy taxpayers alter their tax planning? Gail Rosen, a CPA in Martinsville, N.J., recommends deferring income into 2023 or accelerating expenses into 2022. “If your taxable income is in the end of a tax bracket, there will be tax savings by deferring,” she said. “Taxpayers in the 32%, 35% or bottom of the 37% bracket will save more taxes in 2023, versus 2022, than taxpayers in the lower brackets.”
“It would be better to take the income in 2023 to take advantage of the broader tax brackets,” Corrado said. “This could relate to the timing of a bonus, the sale of an asset, or the timing of receipt of business income for a cash-basis taxpayer. The same concept would apply to deductible expenses.”
The combined contribution limit to 401(k) and similar retirement plans for those age 50 or more is going up $3,000, to $30,000, “so we’re encouraging all of our higher-income clients to maximize contributions,” said Bruce Primeau, a CPA and president of Summit Wealth Advocates in Prior Lake, Minn. “These pre-tax contributions reduce a client’s taxable income which, in some cases, saves a client 35 to 45 cents on the dollar in taxes. The same with back-door Roth IRA contributions, as they’re increasing to $7,500 for those age 50-plus.
“Given the probability that the highest tax rates may be increasing even higher in the future, we love this strategy,” Primeau said.
Clients should look to fully fund company retirement plans, said Chris Murray, San Francisco-based practice leader in tax services at Aspiriant.
“The beginning of the calendar year is always a good time to review your withholding,” he said. “Married couples with dual income often find that withholding can be short due to the progressive nature of the tax system.”
Expansion of marginal tax brackets gives retirees the ability to convert more assets from their tax-deferred IRAs to their tax-free Roth IRAs without jumping into a higher marginal income tax bracket, said Tyler Sterk, wealth advisor at Kayne Anderson Rudnick in Los Angeles, adding that with the standard deduction increasing, charitable taxpayers should reevaluate their giving strategy to make sure they’re still receiving a tax benefit.
Consider a donor-advised fund to bunch two or three years’ charitable contributions into one year, Primeau said. “This may allow you to itemize deductions for 2022 [and take] the standard deduction for 2023 and 2024,” he said. “Plus, using appreciated securities to fund the DAF allows you to diversify without paying income tax.”
This strategy may be especially helpful if you’re anticipating an unusually high-income tax year from the sale of a business, real estate property, or other appreciated investment, Sterk said.

BERNARDS TWP., NJ _ Bernards Township on Monday followed through on its stated intention to file a lawsuit against the now-inactive Liberty Corner First Aid Squad in an effort to regain funds, equipment and real estate from control of the longtime volunteer organization. The LCFAS stopped answering calls as of Sept. 5, citing a shortage of volunteer members, and Atlantic Health Care's paid ambulance service has picked up full-time responsibility for emergency medical calls in the lower portion of the township.
The legal filing in state Superior asserts that these assets belong to the township, and would be used for emergency medical services (EMS) purposes that would serve residents of Bernards Township.
The lawsuit also the LCFAS' officers have refused to provide a full accounting of assets owned by the organization, pr to take any steps to return its holdings, including funds _ which came from donations, fundraising efforts by the squad and, according to the lawsuit, township contributions _ and the squad building at 740 Martinsville Road.

The township is asking for a judge to require the LCFAS to turn over those assets within 14 days of providing the accounting of its holdings, including the deed to the building. The lawsuit also asks that a trust be placed on all of the squad's assets.
In the lawsuit, and at the Bernards Township Committee's first meeting in October, township officials publicly pledged to place any funds in a separate, state-approved trust as a "reserve for EMS services" for residents.
At the most recent Township Committee meeting, on Oct. 25, the issue of the role the volunteer squad should play again came up during the public comment period.
"Liberty Corner people now must pay for [ambulance] service and [also] will pay taxes" toward emergency services," noted resident Joan Bannan, a former Township Committee woman. She asked that the squad members _ who previously said they would like to rebuild membership _ be allowed to provide backup service. She also asked that the township help the volunteer group to rebuild.
She and some other residents said that Atlantic Healthcare's ambulance had recently taken about 30 minutes to answer a call.
"We should recognize what the squad has done over the decades," said Deputy Mayor Andrew McNally. However, he added that it is "not feasible" to have the squad answer calls for three shifts per week, as requested.
"No one would know who is coming to which call," he said.
Both the Basking Ridge volunteer first aid squad _ which remains in operation _ and LCFAS had previously been backed up during weekday hours by the Atlantic Healthcare ambulances; at those times, many members are at work, and unable to answer calls.
But township officials said that LCFAS had already been stretching to provide service during nine shifts required for part-time coverage.
McNally said that the current situation with the LCFAS is not one in which anyone would want to be.
For more than 50 years, the volunteer squad handled 9-1-1 medical calls from residents in much of the southern portion of Bernards Township, covering Liberty Corner and beyond.
The Liberty Corner First Aid Squad was established in 1965, but officially ceased operations this past Sept. 5. Squad membership had been dwindling, and the number of volunteers regularly available was down to about ten to provide emergency squad coverage during a period of 30 hours per week when supplemental squad coverage isn't available, said Dave “Phil” Lai-Len, squad president.
A letter from the squad's officers in September said, "We, like many other volunteer organizations in the state, have been experiencing a critical staffing crisis since the pandemic. After exhausting all options– including the hope of an agreement with the township - we had no other choice but to announce ceasing operations."
The letter continued, "We are extremely proud of all we have accomplished over the past nearly 60 years and very thankful to the community, many who are our friends, neighbors, and family, for believing in our volunteer organization.
"Thank you, Bernards Township residents, for your outpouring of support over the years, for dropping off home-cooked meals for our monthly meetings or late-night shifts, for the handwritten thank-you notes after saving your loved one’s life, or a monetary donation 'just because.'
"The past few years have been a trying time for many, but our dedicated squad never backed down during the Covid-19 pandemic and answered calls during the middle of the night, during snowstorms, and when we were needed in the community. Our members sacrificed nights and weekends away from their own families to serve the community we love. But our devotion was unwavering," the letter remiinded.

The National Weather Service has issued flood warnings in eight counties in northern and central New Jersey Thursday night after hours of moderate to heavy rain caused some streams, creeks and rivers to overflow and others to rise close to their flood stage.
Flood warnings were posted in Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Hunterdon, Morris, Passaic, Somerset and Union counties. Most of the warnings are effective from Thursday night through early Friday morning.
The warning in Bergen County covers the Saddle River near Lodi. It remains in effect until 6 a.m. Friday.
The warnings in Essex, Hudson, Passaic and Union counties pertains to all areas near rivers, creeks and streams, along with “other low-lying and flood-prone locations,” where flooding is either occurring now or is imminent, the National Weather Service’s New York regional office said.
“Streams continue to rise due to excess runoff from earlier rainfall,” the warning notes. “It will take several hours for all the water from these storms to work through local drainage systems in urban areas.”
The warning in Morris County is primarily focused on the Whippany River in Morristown, which surpassed its flood stage of 6 feet at about 9:10 p.m., according to the weather service’s regional office in Mount Holly. The flooding is currently considered minor but it could impact parts of Interstate 287 between mile markers 36 and 39.
Update: A new flood warning in Morris County was issued at 11 p.m., covering the Rockaway River in Boonton, below the reservoir.
In Somerset County, the flood warning includes several rivers — the Lamington River in Burnt Mills, the West Branch Middle Brook in Martinsville, the North Branch Raritan River in North Branch, the North Branch Raritan River in Raritan Borough and the North Branch Raritan River at South Branch.
The Somerset warning also covers parts of Interstate 78 between mile markers 28 and 35, and Interstate 287 between mile markers 15 and 25.
The weather service said between 1 inch and 1.5 inches of rain fell in some of these areas Thursday evening, in addition to the rain that fell earlier in the day. And more rain is expected to fall during the next few hours.
In Hunterdon County, the main area of concern is the Neshanic River in Reaville, which rose above flood stage at about 9 p.m. Thursday, the weather service said.
Note: The latest weather warnings, watches and advisories in New Jersey can be found on this web page.
More than a dozen towns across New Jersey have been drenched with more than 3 inches of rain on Thursday, as of 11 p.m., according to data from the Rutgers New Jersey Weather Network and the National Weather Service. Among them are:
