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 Miramar, FL, 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 Miramar, FL, 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:

One of the largest construction management firms in Florida has relocated its main office out of Miami and into Miramar.
Turner Construction Company is slated to move into a 14,608-square-foot office and warehouse space within the Miramar Park of Commerce at 2902 Executive Way. The company will move out of its corporate office in Miami at 7235 Corporate Center Drive Suite G.
John Marshall of JLL represented Turner Construction in the lease negotiations. The landlord, Sunbeam Properties & Development, was represented by Jonathan Kingsley of Colliers. Ryan Goggins and Peter Apol of Sunbeam Properties, also participated in the negotiations.
Goggins, vice president of Sunbeam Properties, said Turner's decision to move to Miramar Park was a "strategic one."
"We're centrally located between Fort Lauderdale and Miami, with easy access to all major roadways, three international airports, Port Everglades, and PortMiami," Goggins said.
Added Chris Jahrling, general manager and vice president of Turner Construction Company: "The park's central location allows us to have easy access to clients throughout South Florida and beyond."
Founded in New York City in 1902, Turner Construction was acquired by German construction company Hochtief for $370 million in August 1999. Turner employs 10,000 people in North America. Its projects in Miami include the Jackson Health Christine E. Lynn Rehabilitation Center, the American Express Corporate Center in Sunrise, and the renovation of Royal Caribbean's Miramar Office.
Sunbeam also announced that Wetherill Associates, or WAI, a parts manufacturer for automobiles, agricultural vehicles, and industrial equipment, will move into a 11,936-square-foot space in the park at 2841 Corporate Way. WAI is currently located in a 36,153-square-foot industrial building a half mile away at 3300 Corporate Way. In August 2022, WAI sold the building in August 2022 for $9.9 million to HCW Biologics, a Miramar-based immunotherapy medical company.
Goggins, Apol, and Kingsley also represented the landlord in the lease negotiations with WAI.
The Miramar Park of Commerce has more than five million square feet of office, laboratory, pharmacy, light manufacturing, and distribution space. Companies with space within the park include GE, Siemens, Spirit Airlines, Tommy Hilfiger, Neiman Marcus, and Humana.
South Florida industrial market has prospered since the pandemic as more companies and people move into the region. Within the Southwest Broward region, the average asking rent for a flex office and warehouse space was $14.25 per square foot as of the first quarter of 2023, according to Colliers.

Fox affiliate WSVN Channel 7 filed plans for a new headquarters and broadcast station in Miramar, which would clear the way for major development in its current home in North Bay Village.
Meanwhile, station owner Sunbeam Properties is working on plans for a major mixed-use project in Miramar that’s connected to the relocation of the TV station, CEO Andy Ansin said.
The City Commission will consider the site plan and a special exemption for WSVN’s new station on eight acres at the southeast corner of Miramar Parkway and Red Road on Aug. 16. It’s located just off the Florida’s Turnpike exit onto Red Road.
Sunbeam already owns the vacant property, which is part of its Miramar Park of Commerce.
The two-story station would total 71,272 square feet and have 262 parking spaces plus a 65-foot communications tower. Ansin said the dishes would beam the station’s microwave signal from Miramar to the antenna farm near the county line, instead of the signal coming from North Bay Village.
The new facility would include news studio, a second production studio, a newsroom, a weather broadcasting room, video and production control rooms, executive offices, and a staff dining room and kitchen. Ansin said the building would be constructed to continue functioning during a Category 5 hurricane, with two generators, a fuel tank for vehicles, and a backup AC. It would also be on elevated land in case of flooding.
“The city of Miramar is a great place to do business and we understand the permitting process,” Ansin said. “The location at Turnpike interchange and Red Road is a wonderful place to gather news from. It’s centrally located. And it’s a good place for employees to get to and for us to hire from.”
WSVN has 300 employees and 30 job openings, with salaries for new positions as high as $135,000, he said. The new station would include a second studio so WSVN could fill programming and perhaps commercials and third-party productions while the newscasters are occurring in the other studio, he added.
Oklahoma City-based Rees is the architect of the project.
Ansin said moving WSVN to Miramar is conditioned on the approval of another project Sunbeam will present to the City Commission in a few months. Ansin said Sunbeam filed development plans for the northeast corner of Red Road and Miramar Parkway, seeking approval for about 2,800 apartments, a hotel, and about 300,000 square feet of commercial space, including about 40,000 for a grocer, 40,000 of entertainment and 120,000 square feet of restaurants.
“We need to have more services in Miramar before we move Channel 7 there,” Ansin said. “And also for the business park. In order to keep all these companies in Miramar, it’s necessary to have more services for their employees.”
Moving WSVN from North Bay Village would be complicated and expensive, Ansin said, as the station wouldn’t go off the air for a second. It would set up all the new equipment in Miramar while still broadcasting in North Bay Village, run some beta tests in Miramar, and then “flip the switch” to move the broadcast to Miramar, he said.
Pending approval, WSVN could move within three years, Ansin said.
The reason for the move: Sunbeam is pursuing a major mixed-use project in North Bay Village. In October, the developer won village approval for up to 7.3 million square feet of development on the 12.9 acres it owns there. WSVN has been in North Bay Village for 60 years, but its waterfront site is a prime development location.
Ansin said Sunbeam would start redevelopment on the south side of 79th Street first, in about 24 to 30 months, before redeveloping the WSVN property on the north side of the street. The first building would be a 40-story mixed-use tower, he said.
“It will create a whole new image for North Bay Village,” Ansin said. “We want retail and restaurant space on the water, and then on the second floor another restaurant with a big open terrace.”

Sunbeam Properties has started retail leasing efforts in a mixed-use project in Miramar that will also include apartments, hotels and offices.
In August, the company disclosed plans to move its sister company, Fox affiliate WSVN Channel 7, to a new headquarters and broadcast station in Miramar to free up space for development in North Bay Village. At the time, Sunbeam CEO Andy Ansin said he was working on a major mixed-use project across the street in Miramar.
Now, the developer has revealed plans for the Park Miramar on the 125.65-acre site at the northeast corner of Miramar Parkway and Red Road, near Florida’s Turnpike. Katz & Associates’ Jennifer Houston, Jon Cashion, and Daniel Solomon were selected to lease the 325,000 square feet of retail and restaurants, which would include a grocery store. The project would also feature 2,825 residential units, about 100,000 square feet of office space, 185 hotel rooms and 7,500 parking spaces.
“We’re very excited to work on this project, and we look forward to curating a tenant mix that will suit and reflect this community,” the Katz & Associates brokers stated. “It’s a beautifully designed community and it will be a great hub for recreation, shopping, dining, and entertainment.”
The project would have over 40 acres of open space, including 24.4 acres of nature trails, a 2.1-mile perimeter loop and a lake.
Ansin said the retail space would be on the ground floor of six, eight-story multifamily buildings, and there would also be townhouses structures. All of the restaurants would be in freestanding buildings, many of them facing the lake and open space so people could eat outdoors with a view of nature and park space. There would be two 10-story hotels. He expects the office space would be in a single building.
Ansin said Miramar’s Planning Board recently approved the Park Miramar and he expects it to go before the City Commission by the end of the year.
Sunbeam Properties also owns the neighboring Miramar Park of Commerce, one of the largest business/industrial parks in South Florida. Ansin said the mixed-use project would maintain the viability of the business park by placing restaurants, retail and restaurants nearby.

An invasion of giant African land snails has alarmed residents in south Florida, where authorities have established a quarantine area to try to deal with the destructive pests.
The invasive snails have voracious appetites and consume at least 500 species of plants, according to Florida’s department of agriculture, which is fearful for the state’s lucrative growing industries of citrus and other fruits and vegetables.
In response, it has set up a “treatment area” covering several dozen blocks of the city of Miramar, south-west of Fort Lauderdale, and is warning residents that the slimy creatures also pose a serious health risk to humans by carrying the rat lungworm parasite, known to cause meningitis.
Under the quarantine order, the department says it is unlawful “to move a giant African land snail or a regulated article, including, but not limited to, plants, plant parts, plants in soil, soil, yard waste, debris, compost or building materials”.
It intends to spray the area with the chemical snail bait metaldehyde, which is approved for residential use.
The snails are illegal to import or possess in the US without a permit, and authorities have been trying for years to eradicate them. They can damage buildings, as well as destroying crops, and in some quarters are even considered a delicacy.
In March, customs officers in Detroit intercepted a traveler from Ghana trying to smuggle six snails into the country in a suitcase.
In one of the biggest outbreaks, officials in Miami-Dade discovered almost 150,000 snails in more than two dozen separate areas of the county in 2014, many clinging to houses, eating plaster and stucco to gain calcium for their shells, and eating their way through gardens.
Invasions have occurred in other areas of Florida on an almost annual basis since. Pasco county was placed under quarantine last June after more than a thousand of the snails, which can produce up to 2,500 eggs a year, were discovered in New Port Richey.
Experts believe the snails first arrived in Miami in 1966, and numbers swelled to almost 18,000 within six years. According to an ABC News report, the species was declared eradicated twice in Florida, in 1975, and again in 2021.
“The primary danger is that they’re voracious plant eaters, so they can do an awful lot of damage to both landscapes and to agriculture,” the University of Florida entomologist William Kern told Miami’s Local 10 news station.
“If the snails crawl on uncooked vegetables, you can have a problem with it getting a human infection. With any invasive species, if you find it early, you may be able to control it or eliminate it.”
This article was amended on 24 June 2023 to remove a reference to “female” giant African land snails; they are hermaphroditic, having both male and female reproductive organs.
