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 Pembroke Pines, 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 Pembroke Pines, 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:

This year marks the 46th anniversary of one of the most musically potent periods in the Grateful Dead‘s storied career–the legendary 1977 spring tour.
Deadheads are known for being both extensively knowledgeable and highly critical, and the notion that Spring ’77 was a peak for the band is about as close as you’ll get to a consensus among hardcore fans—though narrowing it down to a specific “best” show on the tour becomes much trickier.
Of course, there was the show at Cornell University’s Barton Hall on 5/8/77, the most famous show the band ever played, about which books have been written, films have been made, and countless words have been exchanged in the discussion of its merit.
Then there’s the following evening’s incredible performance at War Memorial Auditorium in Buffalo (5/9/77), which is frequently used as an argument as to why Barton Hall is overrated (i.e. “Cornell ’77 wasn’t even the best show that week, man”).
The two shows that preceded Barton Hall, at Boston Garden in Boston, MA (5/7/77) and Veteran’s Memorial Coliseum in New Haven, CT (5/5/77) have also reached legendary status in Dead circles—another pair of precious gems from the embarrassment of riches that was Spring ’77.
In 2017, in honor of the 40th anniversary of Spring ’77, the Grateful Dead issued a new box set, May 1977: Get Shown The Light, which featured remastered recordings of 5/5/77, 5/7/77, 5/8/77, and 5/9/77 and was marketed as a collection of some of the greatest shows in the history of live Dead.
But the Grateful Dead’s Spring ’77 run goes even deeper than those four storied performances. Take, for example, the show they played 45 years ago today, on 5/22/77 at The Sportatorium in Pembroke Pines, FL. The show was the third to get the remaster treatment as part of the Dick’s Picks archive audio series in 1995, but by that time it had already been cemented in the pantheon of legendary Dead shows.
The show boasts a litany of incredible highlights: The first set renditions of “Sugaree” and “Peggy-O” (not featured on Dick’s Picks 3) and “Dancin’ in the Streets” were all played with an emboldened sense of exploration. The second set-opening “Help” > “Slip” > “Franklin’s” is the stuff of Dead legend, one of the best versions of the classic live suite ever performed. Most of the second set was played without the Dead skipping a beat, as they worked their way through powerful performances of “Estimated Prophet” > “Eyes of the World” > “Wharf Rat” > “Terrapin Station” > a revelatory “Morning Dew”, showcasing a band in historic form.
On the 46th anniversary of 5/22/77, take a listen to the undeniably great performance in all its glory—and take a moment to appreciate the fact that, while this show would likely have been in a class all its own had it been performed at any other time, it’s just another “run-of-the-mill-stellar” show among its time-tested Spring ’77 brethren.

PEMBROKE PINES, FLA. (WSVN) - Several tenants only have a few days to move out of their apartments after their building was condemned.
Residents at the Heron Pond Condominiums, located at 8400 SW 1st St., were instructed to move out of their units after two buildings were found to have structural issues.
City officials on Tuesday told residents at 12:30 p.m. that they need to vacate the building by Aug. 24.
“Today, the sheriff came and he knocked, and he said we got to vacate,” said Katline, a resident.
“If anyone is trying to rent in Heron Pond, don’t do it,” Angel Sanchez said. “I don’t think it’s fair to expect someone to pick up all their whole life in 10 days.”
According to officials with they city’s Fire and Building Department, buildings three and 10 at the condo community were deemed unsafe. Officials said they gave the condo owners plenty of time to fix and come into compliance with some of the issues they discovered.
They claimed “unsatisfactory actions have been taken by unit owners to address this.”
7News camera captured unsafe structure notices placed on two doors at the buildings that were deemed unsafe.
“Ever since I moved in here, it’s been HOA people knocking on my door,” Sanchez said. “One person telling me its safe, another person telling me its not safe. I’d rather not have moved in at all. It would have been a lot less stressful for me.”
The property manager, who has been on the board since March, told 7News that they have been working for the past two years to fix the problems at the condominium .
This all started as an issue with some of the balconies in the community. Some of the units also looked like they were crumbling.
The property manager said they were working with their own engineers and were moving things forward, but in July, residents in the corner units of buildings three and 10 were told to leave because city officials deemed them unsafe.
According to the property manager, they kept working on inspecting five of the buildings in the community, and said, the city decided to fully evacuate.
“I am trying to find something else and trying to move, and, I guess get comfortable again,” Katline said.
Residents are now frustrated and feel like they couldn’t get any straight answers.
“There’s too much uncertainty in this building,” Sanchez said. “There’s no communication and the management is not clear with any of the information they give you.”
The property manager said they are working on a structural assessment and are unsure city officials will deem other buildings in the community unsafe.

PEMBROKE PINES, FLA. (WSVN) - With condominiums crumbling from the inside out, residents in Pembroke Pines said they are fearful if being kicked out due to the unsafe conditions.
Residents at the Heron Pond condos, located in the area of Southwest First Street and 84th Avenue, came home to an alarming notice on their doors, Thursday night.
City officials have deemed every unit there unsafe, as well as all balconies.
“I’m terrified that at any given moment my apartment is going to fall through,” a resident said.
A single mother of three who lives in the building said it has gotten worse every year.
“The rent continues to go up and repairs don’t ever get made,” said the mother, who wanted to remain anonymous.
Her neighbor, who also fears retaliation, agrees.
“This is unsafe; I have kids here,” the neighbor said. “My kids like to sit on the balcony and get some fresh air. Imagine if something happened on our balcony, and it fell through to the bottom floor. We’d all be talking a different story.”
Nearly every unit has damage.
Balconies are held up with jacks. So are other areas where the wood is rotting away.
Many condos have cracks or large holes.
It was enough for the property manager to send an email Thursday night, which reads as follows, “Dear residents, effective immediately, no one can go on the balcony for safety reasons until further notice.”
But residents may soon not even be allowed inside their homes, because Pembroke Pines officials said, “Property management for Heron Pond has been given 48 hours to provide a certified engineering report that supports allowing residents to remain in their occupancies until repairs are completed.”
Finding a firm to sign off on this might be difficult.
7News stopped by the office to see whether they had any advice for residents, but no one answered the door.
Meanwhile, remains remain worried.
“Honestly looking around, it doesn’t look like it’s salvageable,” the mother said.
Residents are concerned that in less than 48 hours, they may not have access to their homes.
“I don’t really feel confident in what’s going to happen, because we don’t have money to just up and leave,” a resident said.
The 48-hour notices expires sometime Saturday evening.
