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 Paterson, 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 Paterson, 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:

Just past the age of 30, Paterson founded technology company ERP Maestro in 2013, creating a cloud solution for internal access controls and security and more job opportunities in South Florida. Since then, Paterson has raised $20 million in funding to grow the Weston-based business that also has offices in London and New York. The company's rapid expansion has resulted in plans for a new office in Plantation to accommodate growth.
Paterson began his career with KPMG in his home country of South Africa, before relocating with the firm to the U.S. While with the company, Paterson created new security methodologies for one of the top enterprise resource planning companies, SAP.

Today, seven of the world's leading audit and accounting firms use Paterson's innovative platform, which is also used by customers in over 19 countries.
"When I got my first customer, I did not even have a company formed yet. I had no capital, no employees and no idea how to run a business," said Paterson. "What I did have, however, was an idea, a product, a customer and a burning desire to succeed. Since then, I have surrounded myself with a team of top talent to turn ERP Maestro into the successful growth story it has become."
With a team of nearly 50 employees now, Paterson anticipates quadrupling that number over the next couple of years.

Lighthouse Point – The long-sought developer’s agreement with the owner of the Lighthouse Point Yacht Club remains unsigned and is holding up construction on the 12-acre site.
Last week, commissioners heard from Paterson Projects President Terry Paterson that he was negotiating a $50 million loan that will close in two weeks. Until his financing is secured, commissioners have said the city will not sign the agreement which has been passed around between the planning and zoning board, the city commission and Paterson for the last three years.
One sticking point is the 27-month time frame Paterson has to complete the redevelopment of the property, which goes into effect when demolition of the old clubhouse begins. Paterson intends to build a 43,000 square-foot clubhouse, 22 luxury townhomes and major upgrades to other amenities on the site. He purchased it in July of 2017 for $16 million.
But Paterson did obtain a permit early in August to build a concrete wall on the Northeast 27 Court border of his property and construction has begun. Commissioner Mike Long questioned the permit saying, “I thought no permits until we had all the signatures [on the developer’s agreement].”
Mayor Kyle Van Buskirk, who signs such permits, said he did so because “it is in the best interest of the neighbors, club members and residents to build the wall. We had an almost signed agreement at the time, and then there were changes, but seemed the thing to do. My goal is to do the best for the city.”
To which Long responded, “Nice. But did you overstep the boundaries?”
Paterson’s original loan went into default in April.
Commission President Jason Joffe raised concerns about Paterson’s financial state. “He’s sitting on a foreclosure . . . I question the future of the club. We could have a financial liability.”
Said Paterson, “The new lender is ready to close. My attorney is working on it. I got a better deal. I am very happy about it.”
Also at issue is the asbestos abatement at the clubhouse that began in August, closing the facility to its members. Paterson started the work without a permit and the city’s building official has shut down the project.
An outdoor area has been set up to serve beverages, food trucks are on site and Paterson has some employees in the building.
He has also obtained temporary permits to do repairs on the club, to install a tent and to tear up some pavement and two tennis courts.
The asbestos removal proved to be a bigger job than anticipated, Paterson said. “I pleaded to let me demo it . . . It was unsafe and the A/C is failing.”
At the meeting, Long continued to accuse Paterson of violating the developer’s agreement and the mayor said he would not sign the agreement until “Terry says his financial problems are behind him.” But he added “in the end, the decision has to be what is best for the residents. When he shows us that loan, I will hand him the permits.”
At this point, all work on the property has ceased until Paterson proves his financial viability.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Noah and Jacob Paterson will play baseball at Thomas University next year which is a dream come true.
They didn't take the traditional route to get there, but for the twins it was the perfect route for them. Jacob and Noah are this week's WTXL Scholar Athletes of the Week.
"We've always been a dynamic duo," said Noah Paterson.
"We do everything together," Jacob Paterson explained. "I think the most we've been apart is probably two or three days."
Chiles High seniors Noah and Jacob Paterson may not be identical twins, but when it comes to baseball, they're on the same wavelength.
"They are night and day polar opposites as far as personality, but there's one thing they get at: It's competition," said Bryan Brown, who works with Powermill Training Academy. "I'd turn around and they'd be poking each other, wrestling each other. I think it goes hand in hand in baseball, it allows them to be good."
Noah and Jacob don't play high school baseball and focus strictly on their training and travel ball. And for them, it's turned into college scholarships.
"I'm pumped. I am pumped," said Jacob. "I'm looking forward to next year to play at such an awesome school."
"Everybody at a college level is looking for talent. They're looking for good students and they're looking for talent as well," said Brown. "If you possess that, regardless of where you come from, they will take a risk to bring you in."
They have both talent and grades. Noah has a 3.7 GPA, while Jacob boasts a 4.0.
"I think he knows at this point, I have the higher GPA. It's okay at this point," said Jacob. "I mean, he's very smart too, but I have a 4.0. What can I say?"
"He is definitely smarter than me, but I have more common sense," said Noah. "I think I win on that part."
Winners in the classroom and winners on the field, they're looking to keep that trend going as NightHawks.
"Always together. Two peas in a pod. It's always been like that," said Noah.
A dynamic duo ready to compete together.
Here's a shocker: Both Noah and Jacob want to major business. Jacob did say he is thinking about throwing biology in the mix. We'll let you know if Noah changes his mind too...
The Paterson twins are our final Scholar Athletes of the school year. This year we recognized 38 student athletes, two sets of twins, and the average GPA was 4.13.

The Atlanta Falcons are feeling good following their first win, but tight end Kyle Pitts might not feel so well after losing a bet to RB Cordarrelle Patterson and strength and conditioning coach Thomas Stallworth.
According to ESPN’s Michael Rothstein, Pitts picked his Florida Gators to beat the Tennessee Volunteers, where both Patterson and Stallworth attended. Tennessee pulled out a 38-33 win over Florida, and now Pitts must… wear overalls.
No photo sadly, but Kyle Pitts lost a bet on Tennessee-Florida with Cordarrelle Patterson & Thomas Stallworth so…
He had to wear Tennessee-colored overalls today. They were hanging in his locker, waiting.
"They put me in overalls, I think that's the worst part. Overalls."
— Michael Rothstein (@mikerothstein) September 28, 2022
Patterson, who was voted NFC Offensive Player of the Week, provided the photo evidence via his Twitter account on Wednesday evening.

Pitts rebounded from a quiet first two games of the season, pulling in five catches for 87 yards during Atlanta’s 27-23 win over Seattle in Week 3.
Look for Pitts to be highly involved in the offensive game plan when the Falcons host the Cleveland Browns Sunday afternoon.
