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 Mirimar, 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 Mirimar, 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:

Rockpoint is once again behind a blockbuster South Florida trade.
The Boston-based firm, along with partner Altman Companies, sold a newly completed multifamily complex for a combined $295 million.
The trade includes two properties in Miramar, Fla., both of which were completed last year. Located at 11385 SW 30th Court, the 320-unit Altis Miramar sold for $149 million, according to property records. Atra Miramar is a mile and a half south of Altis at 2750 SW 113th Lane. It features 330 apartments and traded for $146 million.
To fund the Miramar purchases, the buyer, AvalonBay Communities, a Virginia-based REIT that specializes in multifamily rentals, sold three properties in Elmsford, N.Y., for a combined $306 million, AvalonBay stated in its latest earnings report.
AvalonBay’s acquisition ranks among the largest gross multifamily trades in South Florida. Earlier this year, a joint venture led by Harbor Group International (HGI)bought a complex in Downtown Miami for over $400 million, which remains the priciest rental purchase. Last month, HGI spent $185 million for a property in Brickell.
Taking advantage of South Florida’s sizzling real estate market, Rockpoint has offloaded its portfolio in the region, across asset classes. It sold an office tower in Brickell to hedge fund Citadel for $286.5 million, making it Miami’s priciest trade since the pandemic hit over two years ago. The investor later offloaded an outdoor mall, also in Brickell, for $216 million.
In Miramar, Rockpoint and Altman paid a combined $26.5 million for the developable parcels in 2019 and shortly thereafter secured a $98 million loan from PNC Bank, per records.
Along the beach in Bal Harbour, Rockpoint is developing a condo building with the Related Group and Two Roads Development.
A spokesperson for Rockpoing declined to comment. Representatives for Altman and AvalonBay did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The giant African land snail, known by the state “as one of the most damaging snails in the world,” has shown up again in South Florida — this time in Miramar, where agriculture officials on Tuesday enacted a quarantine for part of the city.
The giant African land snail consumes “at least 500 different types of plants,” according to the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. “These snails could be devastating to Florida agriculture and natural areas as they cause extensive damage to tropical and subtropical environments.”
On June 2, the agriculture department confirmed that the type of snail was in Miramar after receiving a tip through a helpline. And on Tuesday, the agriculture department’s Division of Plant Industry enacted the quarantine, which kicks off the treatment process to eradicate “this detrimental agricultural pest,” the department said.
The department will treat properties with metaldehyde-based molluscicide, known as “snail bait,” a treatment allowed for residential use, it said.
In Miramar, the quarantined area includes the intersection of Pembroke Road and South University Drive, which proceeds south down South University Drive to Northwest 215th Street, then east to Southwest 62nd Avenue. Under the quarantine, it’s illegal to move giant African land snails, as well as certain materials in the quarantine zone, including plants, soil, yard waste, debris, compost and building materials.
The snail also could pose a health risk because they carry a parasite called rat lungworm, known to cause meningitis in people, the agriculture department said. Giant African land snails are illegal to import or possess in the United States without a permit.
It’s not the first time the snail has been spotted in Florida. It has been eradicated several times before in the state. The first time it was spotted in Florida was in 1969, and it was eradicated in 1975. Another eradication of the snail happened in 2021 from a detection that came a decade earlier in Miami-Dade County. The snails also were found in June last year in Pasco County, in northern Florida.
The populations previously eradicated in South Florida, and the populations in Lee County, had dark brown shells with grayish-brown flesh, the state said. The snails detected in Pasco County have light to dark brown shells with milky white flesh.

Walgreens has expanded its space in the Miramar Park of Commerce to include a training facility.
Walgreens (Nasdaq: WBA) added another 11,314 square feet to its office at 3130 Executive Way. With that new lease, it will occupy a total of 63,177 square feet.
Iker Belauste, formerly of JLL and now with CBRE, represented Walgreens in the lease negotiations.
In addition, Stanley Black & Decker renewed its 150,000-square-foot lease for warehouse, distribution, and office space at 9850 Premier Parkway. Represented by Randy Rome of Cushman & Wakefield, the tool company has been in the park since 2001.
National bakery company and cookie distributor Pepperidge Farm remembered to renew its 16,289-square-foot warehouse and distribution center at 3225 Commerce Parkway. Rick Etner of Cushman & Wakefield represented Pepperidge Farm, which has been in the park since 2010.
Peter Apol and Ryan Goggins of Sunbeam Properties represented the landlord, Sunbeam Properties & Development, in the lease transactions.
Established in 1984, the Miramar Park of Commerce has more than 5 million square feet of office, lab, pharmacy, light manufacturing, and distribution space. Among the companies that have offices there are GE, Siemens, Spirit Airlines, Tommy Hilfiger, Neiman Marcus, Humana, Quest Diagnostics, Toyota, Vitas Healthcare, Heico Corporation, and Nissan.
The vacancy rate for offices in the third quarter for Broward ticked upward slightly to 10.8% from 10.6% in the previous quarter, according to preliminary figures from Colliers. The average asking rent was $37.32 per square foot in Broward in Q3 2023. In contrast, the asking rent in the previous quarter was $37.16 per square foot.
The average asking rent for warehouse space in Broward County was $15.89 a square foot as of the third quarter. Its vacancy rate was 4.59%, Colliers stated. In Northwest Broward, which includes Miramar, warehouse space averaged $14.90 per square foot while its vacancy rate was 6.5%.
South Florida's industrial sector isn't quite as hot as it was in 2021 and 2022 when demand for warehouse space was at its peak. Nevertheless, space remains tight giving landlords an edge when it comes to negotiations, brokers have told the Business Journal.
