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 Morristown, 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 Morristown, 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:

MORRISTOWN, NJ — The Morristown Field Club, founded in 1881 and the third-oldest tennis club in New Jersey, recently received approval for an expansion project as well as additional improvements to the existing tennis club.
The Morristown Zoning Board held a public hearing on the appeal of Morristown Field Club on Aug. 3, seeking Major Site Plan Approval with C & D Variances for expansion of the existing tennis Club and associated improvements.
According to zoning board documents the expansion plan includes two new platform tennis courts, resurfacing tennis courts 11 and 12 for multi-purpose use, removing 13 trees and an undefined section of trees within the wetlands area, and removing asphalt driveway, gravel driveway, and portions of concrete walkways.
The second phase of the plan entails remodeling the clubhouse building, which will include a one-story addition with a new covered porch and reconfiguration/expansions of changing rooms, kitchenette, office space, and storage space, as well as a two-story addition to the tennis hut with a new viewing area, storage space, changing rooms, and kitchenette renovations.
The applicant, John J. DeLaney Jr. of the Morristown Field Club, first proposed the expansion project in 2021 and submitted an official application to the zoning board in May 2021.
Since its original application, several changes to the plan have been implemented, following criticism from the public and the board
"The applicant was heard by the Zoning Board in 2022 on February 2, April 6, May 4, and May 18. The applicant has submitted revised plans in response to the Board's comments, Board Professional's comments, and our December 14, 2021, Planning Report #1," said Board Planner Phil Abramson.
During the Aug. 3 meeting, many members of the public expressed their concerns about potential lighting disturbances. Abramson mentioned in his report that DeLaney should confirm that there will be no lighting spillover on any adjacent property with a note on the lighting plans.
Christine Miller, a resident, openly criticized the expansion and questioned why the Club wasn't expanding elsewhere. She slammed the Club's loud music and asked that no evening lights be used.
Another issue raised in the public comment was the club's parking, which is addressed in the expansion. The north parking area will have 26 parking spaces, including 1 handicap space, as well as a newly paved apron, "stop" sign, wheel stops, directional arrows, and 4' tall board on-board fencing.
The south parking area will be reconfigured and repaved to include 31 parking spaces, including two handicap spaces, as well as a new "stop" sign, "do not enter" sign, and painted stop line, according to zoning documents.
Additional site improvements also coming to the club include:

(MORRISTOWN, NJ) -- Morristown resident Betty Mills has been named MPAC’s Volunteer of the Month of July. This recognition program is designed to shine a light on the many individuals who contribute their time and energy toward making MPAC and the MPAC customer experience a success. Betty has been a volunteer at MPAC since 1994, when The Community Theatre reopened as a performing arts venue.
“I like to serve the community, especially MPAC, since I was there from the very beginning,” Betty Mills said. “I enjoy meeting the staff, other volunteers, and the public.”
Betty is about to start her 28th season with MPAC. She is extremely active in the community. Aside from MPAC, she continues her volunteer work with her woman's club, the Great Swamp (where she says she removes snapping turtles from the road) and other various non-profit organizations.
“There is no job that Betty will not do, from escorting ADA patrons to their seats with the utmost care, to supervising the bathroom lines to ensure all patrons get back to their seats before intermission ends,” said Erin Pach, MPAC’s Front of House Director.
During the height of COVID, Betty assisted the Volunteer Manager with keeping in touch with MPAC’s volunteer corps with phone calls so that the volunteers remained connected.
Betty worked professionally as a nurse for 45 years and has also worked for the Morris County Park System, recently retiring. She is a lifelong Morristown resident (her family has lived in the same house for four generations) and is an avid animal lover.
If you don’t see Betty at a performance, check the Delaware River or the Pine Barrens, where she continues to kayak, raft, and hike on a regular basis!

MORRISTOWN, NJ - The July 12 Morristown Council had a very wide variety of topics, from cannabis to high school sports and more.
The Morristown High School Girls Lacrosse Team received recognition early in the meeting. The Girls made it to the Tournament of Champions in June for the first time. Allie Ferrara read off the names of the players, who all received certificates for their accomplishments. Ferrara, incidentally, was announced as Coach of the Year at the High School, though there was no proclamation for this as the Council was not aware, said Mayor Dougherty.
During public speaking, Joe Savino made an emotional appeal to the Council, regarding the Council’s decision to deny Summit Cannabis a cannabis license in Morristown. Summit Cannabis was runner-up in the pursuit of Morristown’s only cannabis license to Uma Flowers, and Savino has been to several Council meetings asking the Council why they are only allowing one license instead of the state-permitted two.
“It’s not too late to consider that if a second license is issued down the road, another RFP could go along with that, it’s a time-consuming process, and it feels like pouring salt in the wound”, said Savino. According to Town Attorney David L. Minchello, the town always intended on one medical license and one retail license and received no medical applications. The town may revisit the topic down the road
The Council reminded residents that the intersection of Spring and Morris will be closing for three days starting July 15 to finish the conversion to a roundabout. It will reopen on July 18.
The Council also spoke of the recent War in Ukraine. This came from a resolution urging the quick passage of refugee reform for those displaced from the country. The council recounted the fantastic attendance of the Morristown for Ukraine back in June and asked residents to keep the movement going.
“The war’s being moved to the second page instead of the front page, and it’s not backing down”, said Mayor Dougherty.
Lastly, toward the end of the meeting, the Council spoke about Board/Commission appointment limits. The discussion was put forward by Sandi Mayer, who asked the Council to remove applications of community members serving on the Zoning Board and Planning Board from consideration for appointment on other boards to allow for new members of the community to serve. The Council did not take action regarding this discussion and soon adjourned for the night.

"Getting around" Morristown will take on a new meaning after this weekend, when one of its busiest intersections will be replaced with a new roundabout connecting three streets one block off the Green.
Preliminary work to lay concrete additions and extensions at the intersection of Morris, Spring and Wilmont streets began in February. The closure is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. Friday and continue to 3 p.m. Sunday, town officials said.
The intersection will be closed during that time but vehicle and pedestrian traffic to Spring Hills, local businesses and public parking lot No. 10 will be maintained.
The roundabout was approved as part of the M Station redevelopment project. Redevelopment area bonds were issued to cover the $3.5 million cost, Morristown Administrator Jillian Barrick said.
Primary tenant Deloitte recently occupied its new space at M Station. Work during the upcoming closure will allow for the next phase of development there, planners said.
Town officials also said the roundabout is being installed in an effort to “reduce carbon emissions, prevent serious accidents, reduce vehicle delays, increase fuel efficiency, reduce speeding and increase pedestrian safety.”
Developers say roundabout intersections are more compact than the previous generation of traffic circles, and have become increasingly popular in New Jersey and across the country as “a safer, more consistent approach to regulating traffic - vehicular, pedestrian, cyclist, and commercial - through densely developed urban and suburban areas.”
A 2018 update of a 2015 Strategic Highway Safety Plan from the New Jersey Department of Transportation recommended roundabouts as among "successful countermeasures" to improve safety on local roads, state highways, and interstates.
The 2019 New Jersey Highway Safety Improvement Program annual report stated the "systemic pilot roundabout program to reduce injury crashes at intersections has also been a success as more counties are interested in building modern roundabouts.
NJDOT also has a pilot program to install at least one roundabout in every county using federal Highway Safety Improvement Funds.
With the information about the road closures, the town also released tips and a link to a video on how to navigate a roundabout.
Before entering a roundabout:
Town officials said the roundabout will accommodate large commercial vehicles and trucks, private vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians. Crosswalks are installed at every entrance and exit, accompanied by rapid-flashing signage and hawk signals.

MORRISTOWN, NJ - Residents of Morristown were privy to a revaluation meeting at the Town Council hall July 27.
According to Appraisal Systems vice president Rob Brescia, who put on the Presentation, the revaluation is being done to ensure everyone in Morristown pays their fair share. The market has changed significantly since Morristown was last revaluated in 2004, and the Morris County Board of Taxation and the New Jersey Division of Taxation have ordered that Morristown conduct another to determine whose houses have increased in value, and in turn who will be paying more property taxes to the state and county in 2023. The town will not be affected.
These rates are based on town averages. Residents whose property values have increased at a rate higher than the town average should expect higher tax rates, and inversely, residents whose value increase rates are lower than the town average should expect lower tax rates. Residents whose properties have increased congruent to the town average should expect no increase to their tax rates.
Starting in late September, inspectors will come by residents’ properties and will knock on their doors to either begin or set up for both internal and external evaluations. Inspectors will be properly identified, residents are encouraged to ensure the inspectors are who they say they are, and both the town and Appraisal Systems ask residents who aren’t certain to call either party. Inspectors will determine their property values by inspecting site dimensions and looking for certain positive or negative qualities, such as a nice view of the surrounding area and whether the area is prone to heavy traffic. They will also look at the overall condition of the house and room count.
Inspectors will abide by all COVID guidelines while inside residents’ houses. Any resident who does not feel comfortable with inspectors physically in their house can instead set up a virtual revaluation. After the revaluation is done, residents will be notified of their results and can sit down, either in person or virtually, with a representative to discuss them. Residents can also defend their revaluations if they believe their rate was overstated.
