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 Palm Beach, 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 Palm Beach, 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:

Last week, the James Beard Foundation announced its first round of picks for its annual restaurant and bar awards, this year giving nods to a large number of South Florida names.
Established in 1990, the James Beard Foundation (JBF) restaurant and chef awards are among the organization's five recognition programs, beginning with semifinalists recognized across 23 categories, including this year's new award for "Outstanding Bakery."
For those in the hospitality industry, the start of the JBF award season is a tense moment, when each region's top chefs, restaurants, and culinary artisans are announced to be in the running for one of the nation's most prestigious honors.
Over the coming weeks, these semifinalists will be further curated when nominees are announced on Wednesday, March 29. The final winners will be named during the official JBF Awards Ceremony set to take place on Monday, June 5, at the Lyric Opera of Chicago.
This year, the JBF award season is especially exciting for South Florida, whose industry professionals garnered a large number of nods for toques and establishments representing a wide swath of culinary focus and background.
So, exactly how are the James Beard nominees chosen in the first place?
Pretty much anyone can support their favorite chef or restaurant to the JBF panel that determines the 20 semifinalists for each category — ranging from "Outstanding Restaurateur" to "Best Chef" for one of 11 regions. That can happen when individuals from the general public are invited to suggest their top picks for consideration online with the open call for recommendation that occurs each fall.
From there, local experts weigh in, reporting to committee members. Moving forward, the JBF committee members consider recommendations that will represent their territory. Once the committee members make their selections, the names go up for discussion at a national level, where a voting body selects the finalists and winners.
The voting body used to be made up of anyone who had won a James Beard award, a long-standing tradition that changed several years ago.
In 2020, the James Beard Foundation announced it would undergo an audit of its policies and procedures following criticism that winners were often white men or restaurants with menus that focused on classic European fare.
The resulting procedures required chefs and restaurants to be vetted via a more inclusive set of standards. The goal was to make the awards more equitable, a move that would attempt to remove systemic bias with a smaller, more diverse panel of committee members, judges, and voters.

Now, with JBF's 12th award season upon us, the foundation's new standards are perhaps best represented by the semifinalists chosen to represent "Best Chef: South."
This year, some of Miami's most beloved chefs are among the semifinalists in the restaurant and chef categories. They include Timon Balloo, the chef/owner at the Katherine in Fort Lauderdale, and the Chang family — Fernando, Nando, and Valerie — at Itamae in Miami.
While the spotlight the past few years has been on Miami's growing culinary presence, including the city's inaugural Michelin ratings, it's hard to ignore the JBF's 2023 recognition of Palm Beach County talent.
Out of the 20 candidates selected to contend for this year's title of best "Best Chef: South" — which comprises Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Puerto Rico — seven represent Florida, four of whom hail from Palm Beach County.
This year's four Palm Beach County semifinalists range from a relatively unknown chef crafting traditional Ethiopian fare in a sleepy West Palm Beach neighborhood to a former fine-dining toque's take on Caribbean- and Florida-inspired barbecue.
Those semifinalists include Jeremy and Cindy Bearman, the husband-and-wife duo behind longtime Lantana favorite Oceano Kitchen; former Ghee executive chef Pushkar Marathe, who offers travel-inspired global small plates at Stage in Palm Beach Gardens; Lojo Washington, an Ethiopian native who prepares soul food and the dishes of her childhood at Queen of Sheeba in West Palm Beach; and Rick Mace, chef/owner of Tropical Smokehouse in West Palm Beach's growing Dixie Corridor Restaurant Row.
For Mace, his first JBF recognition is humbling — especially when it comes alongside a number of colleagues he both respects and supports.
"There's always that stereotype that fine dining will come out on top, and to go from that environment, then branch out and do my own thing with a casual concept, it's very gratifying," Mace tells Miami New Times. "Overall, I consider myself lucky to be friends with all the chefs on this list. I've eaten at their restaurants, know what they're all about, and am proud to be in their company."
Mace is also happy to see the JBF awards evolving while bringing new and different names into the spotlight.
"I see that their messaging is becoming more relevant, exposing the many layers of the industry, and chefs with different backgrounds," adds Mace. "The difference between a good chef and a great chef is about cooking from the heart. Someone who really cares about what they're doing is going to create amazing food."

A holiday tea hosted by Jackie Weld-Drake kicked off the Palm Beach Friends of Lighthouse Guild's 16th season in Palm Beach.
The event took place Dec. 7 at Drake's Palm Beach home and served as a launch for the guild's annual Visionary Evening.
More Palm Beach society news here.
Roberts, Lighthouse Guild’s president and chief executive officer, updated guests on the recently opened Technology Center at the guild's New York headquarters. The center is the world’s largest and most advanced one-stop resource for vision care, rehabilitation and technology training.
Roberts also demonstrated NaviLens, an innovative solution that marries QR technology with orientation guidance. People who are blind or have low vision can use a free app on their smartphone to navigate and access indoor settings and broader spaces such as subway stations, bus stops, museums and even local supermarkets.
"Your support makes what we do possible,” said Roberts, who is also clinical professor of ophthalmology at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City.
The Visionary Evening dinner takes place Feb. 27 at Club Colette.
Proceeds will assist Lighthouse Guild in its mission to provide exceptional services for the visually impaired, including coordinated care for eye health; vision rehabilitation; behavioral health; and technology.

PALM BEACH GARDENS, FLA. (WSVN) - A 74-year-old Lyft driver from South Florida never returned home after he picked up some passengers earlier this week, and now his daughter is asking for help in finding him.
Lindsay DiBetta said she’s worried sick about her father, Palm Beach Gardens resident Gary Levin.
“It doesn’t add up at all,” she said.
DiBetta said he hasn’t been heard from since Monday afternoon.
“Lyft said, at this point, they can only share that he was active on the app at 1:22 p.m.,” said DiBetta. “They won’t tell us, like, did he pick someone up? Did he drop someone off? Like, we don’t know who this person is.”
DiBetta said her father’s car is a red 2022 Kia Stinger with the license plate 81ABTY.
Highway scans show Levin’s vehicle was in Miami, Okeechobee County, Sumpter County and near Gainesville.
“I can’t imagine him going and picking someone up in Miami and then going to Okeechobee,” said DiBetta. “That would be, like, he would let his girlfriend know. They had dinner plans on Monday night, and he never came home. He would let her know, like, ‘Hey, I’m driving from Palm Beach Gardens to Miami, then to Okeechobee.'”
DiBetta said her father’s phone has been off since 2 p.m. on Tuesday.
“In my mind, it makes me feel like someone took his car,” she said.
Police said Levin hasn’t made any threats to himself, and he doesn’t have any known medical conditions. He stands about 5 feet, 7 inches tall and weighs around 160 pounds.
“He is, like, 100% a technology guy. He’s always posting on Facebook, and he also uses his GPS for everything, on his phone,” said DiBetta, “so it doesn’t make sense that he would be driving the Lyft car and not even have his GPS going on.”
Officials with Lyft said they’ve been in touch with Levin’s family to offer support, and they’re ready to assist law enforcement with their investigation.

The next phase of Brightline's $2.7 billion connection from South Florida to Orlando will take place in the form of testing trains at 110 mph in West Palm Beach and northern Palm Beach County.
Here's everything Palm Beach County residents need to know.
Brightline will begin running trains at 110 mph Saturday, Feb. 11, and tests will occur throughout February and March.
Testing will take place daily between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. Flaggers will be present at railroad crossings when there is active testing.
Residents should be alert and follow the law around active railroad tracks and railroad crossings. Testing is expected to bring additional wait times at railroad crossings.
This past fall, the company tested 110 mph trains in Martin and St. Lucie counties as part of the 129-mile rail corridor between West Palm Beach and Cocoa.
Here are the locations where trains will be coming through:
During the tests, trains will speed up to 110 mph, slow down and speed up again to test brakes. There will be additional wait times at affected crossings, sometimes from 10-15 minutes.
When each test began, all the affected railroad crossings were closed at the same time and reopened individually as the train passed. Brightline ran 10-16 tests runs a day.
Brightline recently rolled out its new Boca Raton station, which began operating in December.
The station stands just north of Palmetto Park Road, at 101 N.W. Fourth St. It's walking distance from the Boca Raton Public Library and Mizner Park.
Unlike other Brightline stations, it does not have a second floor. But its airy, one-story interior was designed with user satisfaction in mind — both physical and digital.
Facing the seating area is Brightline's signature MRKT, an autonomous convenience market where travelers can take food items from the shelves and check out with their credit cards or Apple Pay. It's the first of its kind in Florida.
The airport’s train station has a curved, overlapping roof. The station is just east of and adjoins Terminal C.
The station was designed by Bigtime Design Studios, an architecture firm in Miami that also designed the new Brightline stations in Boca Raton and Aventura.
Brightline isn't offering specifics, only saying that it will be sometime in 2023.
It will link West Palm Beach travelers to Orlando in two hours with trains moving through Florida at 125 mph.
Eventually, there are plans to add an extension from Orlando to Tampa.
