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 Oradell, 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 Oradell, 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:

Syracuse basketball appears to be making 2024 five-star prospect Elliot Cadeau a high-priority recruit for the team in this cycle, according to media reports.
In a recent interview with Pro Insight, the 6-foot-1 Cadeau was asked which schools he is hearing from the most, and he replied with the Orange, Texas Tech and Tennessee. Naturally, this is great to hear.
But as a member of the rising-junior class, Cadeau’s recruiting process likely has a long way to go. And with college coaches able to initiate direct communication with 2024 high-school players once the contact period opened up this past June 15, the competition for Cadeau is undeniably going to intensify moving forward.
Last November, the ‘Cuse coaching staff offered a scholarship to Cadeau, who is a consensus top-15 national prospect, according to the primary recruiting services. He’s also deemed by most recruiting Web sites as the No. 1 point guard in the 2024 cycle.
This week, Cadeau has been suiting up at the prestigious Peach Jam tournament in North Augusta, S.C. He plays for the New York City-based New Heights Lightning in Nike’s EYBL league.
The New Heights Lightning, by the way, is a top-10 AAU squad on the EYBL circuit, and you can check out some of Cadeau’s Peach Jam statistics by clicking here.
As a sophomore, Cadeau attended Bergen Catholic High School in Oradell, N.J. However, he has elected to transfer for his junior year to one of the best prep-school groups around the country, the Link Academy in Branson, Mo.
In a recent article, MaxPreps named Cadeau as one of the top impact transfers ahead of the upcoming 2022-23 season.
Speaking of the Peach Jam, the Syracuse basketball coaching staff has been in attendance for Cadeau at this event, according to a tweet from college basketball insider Adam Zagoria.
Beyond the Orange, Cadeau’s offer sheet includes Kansas, Maryland, Seton Hall, Providence, St. John’s, Texas Tech, Tennessee, Oklahoma State, TCU, UMass, Howard and Siena.
Per reports, collegiate heavyweights such as Kentucky, North Carolina and Auburn, among others, are showing interest in Cadeau.
Recently selected to Sweden’s U18 national team, Cadeau is planning to officially visit Texas Tech in September. The Red Raiders are also garnering some buzz on Rivals.com for Cadeau, but as I mentioned earlier, his recruitment has a way to go.
While nothing has gotten scheduled, I feel fairly confident that the ‘Cuse will end up landing an official visit from Cadeau. Stay tuned.

We already zoned in on the offensive side of the ball looking at the quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers and offensive linemen. Now it is time to look at the defense, starting with the top 10 defensive linemen in high school football.
This list includes both edge rushers and defensive tackles and is headlined by five-star David Hicks Jr. and recent Clemson pledge Peter Woods. Hicks checks in as the top-rated defensive lineman and No. 1 player in Texas on 247Sports composite rankings. Woods was selected as the best player in Alabama heading into the 2022 season.
Hicks is one of six players featured that is still undecided while Woods (Clemson), Keon Keeley (Notre Dame), Jayden Wayne (Miami) and DJ Samuels (Maryland) are already committed.
Colin Simmons is the only non-senior featured in this group and the five-star edge rusher from Duncanville (Texas) was a first-team selection on the 2021 MaxPreps Sophomore All-America squad.
Florida has the most players featured with three followed by Alabama and Texas with two each. California, District of Columbia and New Jersey all have one.
Height: 6-4 | Weight: 270
Status: Uncommitted | Class: Senior (2023)
Lines up everywhere on the defensive line and posted 96 tackles, 22 tackles for loss and 13 sacks during his junior season at Allen.
Height: 6-3 | Weight: 270
Status: Committed to Clemson | Class: Senior (2023)
Helped the Warriors win their third consecutive 7A state title in 2021 and was a first-team selection on the MaxPreps Junior All-America squad. Woods had 92 tackles, 26 tackles for loss, 11 sacks and a pick-six.
Height: 6-6 | Weight: 245
Status: Committed to Notre Dame | Class: Senior (2023)
The five-star edge rusher racked up 34 tackles for loss and 16.5 sacks in 2021.
Height: 6-5 | Weight: 230
Status: Uncommitted | Class: Senior (2023)
Has gone viral this spring because of his sub 10.3 100-meter dash but showed what he can do on the football field during his junior season when he had 31 tackles for loss and 17 sacks.
Height: 6-6 | Weight: 260
Status: Uncommitted | Class: Senior (2023)
The five-star edge rusher will be an impact player on both sides of the ball for the No. 1 team in the MaxPreps Top 25 rankings.
Height: 6-3 | Weight: 225
Status: Uncommitted | Class: Junior (2024)
The top-rated edge rusher will be the next great defensive player for the Panthers.
After spending last season at IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.) he's back at Carver and one of the most dominant defensive lineman in the country.
Height: 6-2 | Weight: 250
Status: Uncommitted | Class: Senior (2023)
Recorded 29 sacks as a junior for one of the premier programs and will look to end his career leading the Rockets to a fourth straight state title.
Height: 6-5 | Weight: 245
Status: Committed to Miami | Class: Senior (2023)
Named the best player in Washington before announcing his transfer to IMG and should sharpen his tools even more lining up against the best competition in practice every single day.
Height: 6-2 | Weight: 240
Status: Committed to Maryland | Class: Senior (2023)
Broke Brian Cushing's school-record for career sacks as a junior and should make an even bigger impact as a senior for the No. 21 team in the MaxPreps Top 25.

ORADELL, New Jersey (WABC) -- New Jersey officials are demanding answers after another round of damaging flooding.
Communities in Oradell, New Milford, and River Edge got slammed by flooding last week after heavy rain hit the area.
Friday was a frightening morning for residents living along the bank of the Hackensack River, as the water rose and swallowed up several blocks of homes.
Flooding damaged over 100 homes and businesses in Oradell.
Residents said they did not get notified that the Hackensack River was swelling and could not hold the excessive amount of rain that came into the area on Thursday night.
For many residents, it was the second time in seven months that their homes have been flooded since Ida in September.
Local officials want utility company Veolia Suez to release critical information and requested a meeting.
The water company said they informed people that the reservoirs were full to capacity, but local leaders said they never said anything about the possible flooding.
The extra rainwater washed down over the drinking water supply and spilled into the river, washing through the low-lying areas of New Milford.
Officials said more should be done to protect the victims who are customers of the water company.
Flooding also impacted a business, a PSE&G facility, and trapped buses from their runs during the morning rush hour.
"The buses were eventually removed from the yard and moved to higher ground, but the damage is already done," Bergen County Executive Jim Tedesco said. "The water company says they are planning to meet with the county executive sometime this week. Meanwhile, efforts are underway to help residents recover once again."

Virginia "Ginny" Baird
Oradell - Virginia Pritchard Baird, 88 of Oradell, passed away on December 11, 2021 of leukemia.
Ginny was born in Teaneck, NJ on April 14, 1933 to Caroline Ritter and Grant Pritchard. She was a 1951 graduate of Teaneck HS and 1955 graduate of what is now William Paterson University. She is predeceased by her husband Kenneth Findlay Baird and her brother Ralph Pritchard of Lebanon, NJ.
She was the loving and nurturing mother/grandmother of Jim Baird (Denise) and their children David and Michelle; Nancy Mahdavi (Oscar) and their sons Bijan and Arjang; and Chris Baird.
Ginny started her career as a primary education teacher at Smith School in Tenafly in the 1950s. After raising 3 children, she returned to teaching 2nd grade at Cherry Hill School in River Edge, retiring in 1995.
She was an active parishioner of the Episcopal Church of the Annunciation in Oradell, president of the ECW, member of the choir, Altar Guild and Vestry, and a eucharistic minister. She received both the World of Women and the David Paul Hegg II Lifetime Achievement Awards.
Music was the common bond that joined our parents together. They met in the Teaneck Community Band in 1951. Dad, a trumpet player, had his eyes on Mom, the cute new oboe player. She made sure you knew it was a double reed instrument– very difficult to play. She also played in the North Jersey Symphony and the Waldwick and Westwood community bands. She volunteered for the NJ Wind Symphony, formerly the Ridgewood Concert Band. She was also a longtime member of the NJ Chorale of Ridgefield.
Mom was the musical director of the Oradell Book and Needle Club Singers, who performed at local senior facilities. She volunteered for the Starfish organization, helping seniors get to doctors' appointments.
She enjoyed gardening, crosswords, reading, cross-stitch, knitting scarves and caps for the Seamen's Church Institute, attending Scottish events, attending performances at PAC and on Broadway, and swimming at the Oradell Swim Club. Ginny made an extraordinary impact on everyone she met.
A memorial and interment of ashes will take place in late April 2022. For info, email [email protected] In lieu of flowers, contributions in her name can be made to Church of the Annunciation, 343 Kinderkamack Rd, Oradell NJ 07649, or at annunciationoradell.org/support-us.html.
