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 Mine Hill, 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 Mine Hill, 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:

When Nov. 1 hits, the Iervolino family — James, Amy and 16-year-old Izzy — have the herculean task of taking down their intricate Halloween display (this year they had more than 1,000 pumpkins) and putting up their even more extravagant Christmas decorations in time for Thanksgiving.
A towering blowup Abominable Snowman, cutouts of classic cartoons like Ricochet Rabbit, an animatronic Jack Skellington, an inflatable menorah, not to mention plenty of trees, lights, garlands and wreaths crowd the lawn at 663 Lincoln Ave. in Pompton Lakes.
According to Amy, a few hundred people come every day to check out the scene. Special this year, she said, are the 12 miniature train lines running through the yard all day.
James and Izzy have been fashioning over-the-top holiday displays since Izzy was young. Every year they have a theme.
This year’s theme is “It’s a small world.” The family has replicated the Small World ride from Disneyland — colorful wooden towers with dolls representing different countries — and put it smack in the middle of the yard. (Last year's theme was Rockefeller Center, complete with an ice skating rink.)
Families are welcome to visit the display any time of day, said Amy. The display will be up through the beginning of January. And if you head there on Sunday, Dec. 12, around 5 p.m., you may even see Santa himself.
Here are more houses with outrageous holiday light displays throughout North Jersey.

Ever feel we are sometimes too reliant on technology? I’m sure many in New Jersey did Friday afternoon. This didn’t receive much mainstream media attention but it was all over social media.
Indeed not only were people making purchases scrambling by paying with checks there was an above normal run on atms for cash withdrawals.
It’s being called a major outage of credit and debit cards, both Visa and Mastercard. Chase Bank runs the network that handles these and was having major problems.
It inconvenienced customers not only across New Jersey but also in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Connecticut, Kentucky and beyond.
I remember the Northeast blackout of 2003 that affected not only that part of the country but extended all the way out to Michigan where I lived at the time. I was trying to buy bags of ice at a 7-Eleven, as was everybody trying to save the food in their now useless refrigerators.
The store of course couldn’t process anything electronically. It was a cash-only situation for which most people were unprepared. Customers were screaming at workers for not having the old-fashioned carbon paper swipe machines. It was bedlam.
A major technology fail recently hit my boys’ ophthalmologist’s office. They were so reliant on technology with no backup system that when it crashed and burned, they couldn’t make new appointments, couldn’t access patient records, couldn’t look up a past prescription or do any function of business. It shut them down literally for weeks.
We’ve gotten so used to technology always being there for us that society can come to a grinding halt when it fails. And it is in that moment we see just how much of technology’s slave we have become.

The nasty nor’easter isn’t finished with New Jersey yet, as it continues to swirl out in the Atlantic and push bands of rain back over parts of the state that have already been saturated during the past 24 hours.
Some towns across the region have already gotten swamped with a full month’s worth of rain in just one day, according to preliminary rainfall reports. The heaviest rain fell during the early morning hours Tuesday, when the storm intensified as it was spinning about 250 miles off the coast of New Jersey.
A few towns in Bergen County reported as much as 6 inches of rain from Monday night through Wednesday morning, including Waldwick with 6.49 inches, Oakland with 6.17 inches and Westwood with 6.10 inches.
Additional towns and counties will be added to this list as they become available.

But with recently refurbished hotels, is this the moment it gives in to glitz? A writer gets on his bike to explore.
Shelter Island occupies a delicate position, being less than half a mile from Long Island’s laid-back North Fork but also roughly the same distance from the South Fork — i.e., the Hamptons. The old-money families who have summered on the small island for generations, along with the 2,500 year-round residents, regard the Hamptons crowd much the way the residents of East Egg looked upon those of West Egg in “The Great Gatsby.” There is always the worry that the flashy new money will skip across the water and spoil their quiet paradise.
One summer 10 years ago or so, my wife and I stayed at the Chequit Inn, a Victorian-era hotel in Shelter Island Heights that was charmingly outdated and casual. We rented bikes and rode all over the 29-square-mile island, which is 90 miles from New York City, give or take, exploring drowsy beaches and coves, admiring the summer cottages and hitting the island’s only supermarket for sodas and snacks. Everything about the place felt chic, relaxed and timeless.
By The New York Times
Then, this spring, I learned that the Pridwin Hotel and Cottages, the biggest hotel on Shelter Island and a mainstay since 1927, was getting a major renovation under new ownership. It followed the recent sale and overhaul of both the Chequit and the Ram’s Head Inn, another nearly 100-year-old hotel. Was glitz coming to Shelter Island?
In early June, I set off on a two-day visit to find out. I left my apartment in Brooklyn at 10 a.m., and by 12:30, I was driving my car onto the North Ferry at Greenport (the South Ferry connects the island to the South Fork).
I again booked a room at the Chequit. The hotel has been refurbished inside and out and now features an inviting patio area, a new Asian-inspired restaurant and a beachy beige color scheme instead of the old colors, dingy green and white. At $400 a night (on a Monday, no less), it was much more expensive than the funky old Chequit. But it hadn’t been turned into Nikki Beach by any stretch, and I found the same relaxed vibe. I practically checked myself into my second-floor room, which had a view down to the harbor.
Shelter Island may see itself apart from the Hamptons, but it’s a similarly wealthy enclave that caters to travelers with means. Prices were especially high, even prohibitive, in this summer of record-high inflation. I spotted a $45 lobster roll on one lunch menu and paid $7 for a bottle of water and a cookie. With half a dozen or so hotels on the island, the Chequit was the cheapest out of the three I considered.
Staying in Greenport and day tripping to Shelter Island used to be a more affordable option, but as that town has become more popular with city dwellers during the pandemic, hotels there have become nearly as expensive, averaging around $330 a night.
But one thing remained a bargain: renting a bicycle at Piccozzi’s Bike Shop, down the hill from my hotel at the Dering Harbor Marina. I paid $25 for four hours and got 10 times that back in pleasure just bumming around all afternoon.
First, I cycled over to Marie Eiffel, a cafe and market in the village popular with islanders and tourists alike. I ordered a sandwich then pedaled off to find a picnic spot along the harbor.
After lunch, I rode up Harbor Lane, discovering a neighborhood of fancy houses perched on the cliffside; cycled down the island’s more rural midsection on cracked, uneven roads; and rode east to Menhaden Lane, a semi-secret beach known to locals and officially designated a town landing, not a beach. The settled parts of the island offered a certain manicured prettiness, but it was common to go around a bend or turn right at a crossroads and be in a landscape of untamed beauty. Wild rambler roses were blooming everywhere in dense foliage and I kept inhaling the fragrance of them as I rode.
Finally, I stopped into the town center, such as it is, with its municipal buildings, bank and other services, to visit a wonderful used book store, Black Cat Books. The shop, which moved from Sag Harbor 10 years ago, has a large selection of art, design and photography titles, as well as fiction and other genres, and it’s easy to spend an hour browsing.
After I returned the bike, I went back to Marie Eiffel, where I bought an ice cream sandwich and sat on the deck behind the café, watching the boats bob in the harbor. A sign posted on a fence scolded “No Cell Phone Chatter,” which made me smile, but I had the deck and view to myself anyway.
That sense of being alone on the island would happen repeatedly during my short stay. For instance, I drove out to Reel Point just before sunset. It’s reached by going over a causeway to Ram Island, a chunk of land extending off the main island into Gardiner’s Bay. At Ram Island’s southeasterly point, a thin sliver of barrier beach — Reel Point — juts into the water. The open view of sea, sand and sky was stunning, and it was just me and the piping plovers to enjoy it.
That evening, I lingered on Ram Island to have dinner at the Ram’s Head Inn, which has a new owner and a new restaurant focusing on farm-to-table dishes, but otherwise looks much the same. A 17-room country inn clad in cedar shingles, it’s situated on four and half acres overlooking the water. Adirondack chairs were lined up in the big backyard and facing west to take in the sunset. For the price of my dinner (salmon, a glass of pinot grigio and dessert for $73, plus tip), I enjoyed the million-dollar view. (The cheapest room at the time of my stay was $440 a night, with a shared bath.)
In the morning, back at the Chequit, I woke to a crowing rooster and the rising sun through my window. I wanted to get an early start: I planned to hike Mashomack Nature Preserve, more than 2,000 acres of tidal creeks, oak woodlands, freshwater marshes and fields. Forty years ago, the Nature Conservancy and the residents of Shelter Island banded together and bought what had been privately owned land, keeping almost a third of the island out of the hands of developers.
Mine was the only car in the parking lot. The hikes range from as short as .2 miles to 4.4 miles, and the trails connect so you can piece together longer walks. I plotted a route that took me through forest and along the edge of a tidal creek, before opening into a vast field. Rambler roses lined parts of the trail, and a breeze kicked up their sweet, familiar scent.
Before I left the island, I swung all the way west to Crescent Beach, where 25 years ago, the hotelier André Balazs bought a dilapidated motel and restaurant and turned it into a sexy beachfront resort called Sunset Beach that draws an international party crowd, much to the old-guard’s displeasure. It marked the first sign of the arrivistes. (Rooms go from a low of $479 a night on weekdays up to $899 a night on the weekend.)
Just down the road sits the Pridwin, a big white box with a deep front yard overlooking the bay. The hotel was bought by Cape Resorts, which has a track record of taking historic properties, like Congress Hall in Cape May, N.J., and Baron’s Cove in Sag Harbor, and reviving them.
Glenn Petry, whose family has owned the Pridwin since 1961, and who has partnered with Cape Resorts, told me he felt a certain pressure from islanders to retain the look and feel of the hotel, even amid the extensive renovations (it opens to guests in July; rooms will be more than $500 a night in season).
“There’s no question that there’s change afoot on Shelter Island,” Mr. Petry said. “It’s definitely being led by the real estate market.”
Driving and biking around the island, I’d noticed freshly cleared building sites in wooded areas, soon to become new vacation homes. Perhaps because I visited during the week, or perhaps because the high season hadn’t fully begun, but Shelter Island, to me, even amid these changes, still felt drowsy and unpopulated.
I hoped to come back again in another 10 years and say the same thing.

NUEVA JERSEY - Dos personas se ahogaron en un lago de Nueva Jersey el martes por la noche, casi al mismo tiempo que un niño pequeño fue extraído de una piscina casera en Long Island, evetons trágicos que nos recuerdan sobre los peligros que acechan a los niños (y adultos) que buscan darse un chapuzón este verano.
En Nueva Jersey, los funcionarios del condado de Morris dijeron que el personal del Servicio de Emergencias Médicas (EMS) estaba en el estacionamiento de Mine Hill Beach a lo largo de Green Road después de las 5 p.m., cuando un grupo les dijo que dos personas se metieron al agua y nunca salieron.
Los paramédicos se pusieron en contacto con otros socorristas del área e inmediatamente realizaron una búsqueda, que resultó inútil de los jóvenes desaparecidos, dijeron las autoridades.
EMS y la policía de Wharton, Roxbury y Randolph realizaron una búsqueda exhaustiva en el lago donde los dos fueron vistos por última vez, pero dijeron que era complicado debido a la vegetación enredada bajo el agua. Después de horas de búsqueda, uno de los cuerpos fue encontrado.
El segundo cuerpo fue recuperado poco después.
La policía dijo en la madrugada del miércoles que las víctimas eran hispanos, de 17 y 22 años. Sus nombres no fueron revelados de inmediato.
También durante la noche, justo antes de las 6:30 p. m., un niño de 2 años en Long Island fue sacado del agua de una piscina en un patio trasero en otro susto de ahogamiento.
La cinta amarilla bloqueó el área residencial alrededor de Barbara Drive en Centereach, cuando el niño pequeño se hundió en la piscina de una casa. No está claro cuánto tiempo estuvo el niño en el agua.
El niño, cuyos familiares son dueños de la casa donde se encuentra la piscina, no respiraba y fue llevado al Hospital Universitario Stony Brook. Se dijo que estaba en estado grave el miércoles por la mañana, según una actualización de la policía del condado de Suffolk.
Los últimos ahogamientos y riesgos de ahogamientos se producen después de varios casos similares en el área triestatal ocurridos desde la semana pasada y teniendo en cuenta que la temporada de verano aún no ha comenzado oficialmente. De los cinco ahogamientos anteriores, cuatro de las víctimas han sido adolescentes.
A unas 50 millas al oeste de Centereach, se llevaron a cabo los servicios funerarios para la víctima de ahogamiento Daniel Persaud. El niño de 13 años y su amigo Ryan Wong fueron arrastrados por un banco de arena el viernes por la tarde y arrastrados por las fuertes corrientes de Jamaica Bay.
Los devastados padres, parientes y amigos de Persaud lanzaron globos al cielo de la tarde, llorando al joven que murió mientras intentaba divertirse a principios de verano con sus amigos.
También el martes, se encontró el cuerpo de una mujer de 59 años después de que desapareciera el lunes por la noche cuando se metió al agua en Island Beach State Park en el condado de Ocean.
Los policías dicen que un hombre les dijo que su esposa se tiró al océano alrededor de las 8 p.m. el lunes y no volvió. Su cuerpo fue encontrado alrededor de las 11 a.m. del martes. Su identidad aún no ha sido revelada.
A principios de junio, dos hermanos en Nueva Jersey se ahogaron en una piscina durante un evento comunitario de natación en una escuela, a pesar de que había tres socorristas de turno. Los hermanos Chu Ming Zheng, de 19 años, y Jack Jiang, de 16, murieron después de que un funcionario escolar dijera que estaban en una piscina separada dentro de una escuela de Bayonne , no en la que estaban vigilando los socorristas.
La Cruz Roja Estadounidense brinda los siguientes consejos tanto a los que van a nadar como para los encargados de vigilar a los que están en el agua:
Las ciudades y pueblos de todo el condado temen que no haya suficientes vigilantes en las playas y piscinas, ya que muchos municipios han tenido problemas para contratar suficientes salvavidas. Los bloqueos de COVID también retrasaron algunos cursos de capacitación, pero incluso aquellos que están capacitados buscan trabajos mejor pagados.
