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 Raritan, 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 Raritan, 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:

FLEMINGTON, NJ - Hunterdon Central Regional High School students and the district’s superintendent are fighting the potential loss of an in-school mental health counseling program amid a proposal by the governor that would consolidate student support services.
The school is one of approximately 90 in the state which would lose an accessible, free counseling service known as School Based Youth Services under a new plan proposed by Gov. Phil Murphy that could take effect July 1, 2023.
Murphy’s new infrastructure for student and family support, announced in early October, includes the creation of “regionally based hubs” which would provide three tiers of support. Directors, support staff, prevention specialists and mental health counselors staffing the hubs “can be mobilized to support the needs of schools, as well as deliver services and support at other areas within the community, including libraries, community centers, faith-based organizations, social service agencies and even residential homes."

The new network would replace School Based Youth Services, although the state’s announcement says “agencies that currently provide School-Based Youth Services would be eligible to apply to operate a hub.”
Sophia Rencher, a senior at Hunterdon Central, said in an email she thinks the governor’s plan “has the correct moral idea of bringing mental health support state-wide, but is also taking away the individuality of what every school needs.”
“Prior to the year of the pandemic, our school fell into a new period of tragedy almost annually, like us students were just waiting to see which student would lose their battle next,” she said. “That level of grief for a youthful individual, especially an entire community of them, is nothing that should have to be borne.”
Unlike other services, the school-based program also provides confidentiality, she said.
“There is a confidentiality form you sign off on in which you can decide whether or not your parent/guardian(s) are notified that you are partaking in the program," she said. "This resource has probably helped so many students with unsupportive parents who do not care to indulge in the topic.”
School Based Youth Services currently provides in-person mental health, youth development, group, crisis intervention and extra-curricular services to Hunterdon Central students.
Hunterdon Central students who started a “Save School Based Youth Services Programs” petition, which nearly 10,000 people have signed, say the existing program provides daily support to students who might not receive the same immediate access through the statewide hubs, and it removes barriers to care such as “transportation needs and working around schedules.”
“School-based programs provide students on a daily basis with the mental health and crisis intervention services they are in such need of right now, and there will be a significant gap in the care of these students without these programs,” the petition states.
It says access to care is needed as the COVID-19 “pandemic left devastating consequences on the mental health of students and families in our schools.”
Superintendent Jeffrey Moore, at the Oct. 24 Hunterdon Central Regional Board of Education meeting, said the district will continue to fight for School Based Youth Services programs. Hunterdon’s program consists of four therapists serving hundreds of students, according to Moore.
“The state’s conduct in all of this has been most disappointing,” Moore said at the meeting. “Officials have lied to us, they refuse to answer questions, they have not done their homework on the programs that they seek to cut. They paint them all with a broad brush and say none of them are impactful, but we know different. We know we have waiting lists, we know that these programs have saved kids’ lives.”
Moore said the state previously tried to pull funding on programs like Hunterdon Central’s in 2020, and “the outcry was so loud, that the state actually turned around and put the funds back.” he said.
“I need you to know I've been meeting with my colleagues across the state and also with students and parents here at Central to talk about this and to let everybody know what's happening,” he added.
The change is proposed in part because the state’s current support network “is limited in scope and reach,” according to state Department of Children and Families Commissioner Christine Norbut Beyer.
“Of the nearly 1.4 million students in the New Jersey public school system, only 25,000- to 30,000 students (approximately 2% of the student population) are supported by the state’s School Linked Services Program annually,” Beyer wrote in a white paper on the proposal.
The New Jersey Department of Children and Families accepted public feedback on the new proposal for a two-week period in October, but Moore encourages people to continue to share their thoughts.
“The most important thing that people can do is share their experiences with our school-based therapists anywhere they feel comfortable sharing the experiences,” the Hunterdon Central superintendent urged. “Let people know how important these programs are for your health, your growth and your recovery from the pandemic.”
RARITAN TWP, NJ - Raritan Township Mayor Scott MacDade has promised the township committee will consider all possible legal options to get the “right decision” after the Hunterdon County Agriculture Development Board (CADB) passed a resolution Thursday approving West View Vines’ application for the construction of a 15’x30’ concrete pad for wine making.Overruling the township, which had earlier denied permission for the construction of the concrete pad, and dismissing concerns raised by residents, the CAD...
RARITAN TWP, NJ - Raritan Township Mayor Scott MacDade has promised the township committee will consider all possible legal options to get the “right decision” after the Hunterdon County Agriculture Development Board (CADB) passed a resolution Thursday approving West View Vines’ application for the construction of a 15’x30’ concrete pad for wine making.
Overruling the township, which had earlier denied permission for the construction of the concrete pad, and dismissing concerns raised by residents, the CADB formally adopted a resolution to approve the application at its meeting Nov. 10, saying “the proposed plan for the construction of a 15’ x 30’ concrete pad for wine making is a sound farming practice, and the applicant should be afforded Right to Farm protection and relief from Raritan Township’s denial of a zoning permit.”
In July, the CADB had certified the property on West View Drive as a commercial farm. Owner Alan Funk has said they have no intention of expanding the property from the 1 acre he has, as noted on property records, and the wine-making itself will be done in the 35x35 garage.

MacDade, who was present at the meeting along with Deputy Mayor Robyn Fatooh, expressed his disappointment at the resolution.
“We support our residents,” he said. "We want to see that their appeal is heard, and the right decision is made.”
“We think the wrong decision was made and we're going to see what we can do to help them,” he added. “We are going to pursue what we can here. We're working with [the residents] to get a satisfactory resolution.”
Many residents have rigorously objected to the proposed winery in their community on West View Drive, near Thatchers Hill Road, because of potential traffic, safety and noise concerns and overuse of water, especially as Raritan Township still mostly relies on private wells.
The CADB, however, was only interested in “approving a concrete pad and nothing else,” resident Stephen Rubin alleged following the CADB meeting Oct. 13. Rubin also accused the board of shutting down residents who tried to “question the application or make their position known with regard to traffic or water runoff or anything” at the meeting, and described the process as “humiliating.”
Announcing to CADB Resolution 2022-05, Katrina Campbell, counsel for Hunterdon County, said most of the arguments raised by the township and the residents had already been addressed and the resolution was just a memorialization of the decision made by the board.
“The applicant has a legitimate farm-based reason not to comply with Raritan Township’s zoning ordinance as the proposed use is a reasonable agricultural activity,” the resolution stated, “and the applicant will not implicate any health, safety and welfare issues.”
The application, Campbell said, has been approved on the condition that the proposed 15’ x 30’ concrete pad will be located in front of the existing detached garage, and the applicant will “work with a contractor to provide a retention area to collect run-off from the pad after rinsing the wine-making equipment.”
The applicants, Allen and Susan Funk, have also agreed to limit their wine-making operation to only the grapes that are grown on the farm, and to not bring any additional grapes for processing. They have also agreed not to host any public events and public tastings as part of their winery operations, offer on-site sales or put up public signages, the counsel added.
The determination of the CADB will be forwarded to the State Agricultural Development Committee within 30 days, and any person against the decision may appeal to the SADC.
Raritan Township looks set to pursue that course.
Appearing on behalf of Raritan Township at the meeting, attorney Phil Robertson “formally rejected” the adoption of the resolution “in the severest possible terms,” he said.
“As noted in the more detailed legal brief that was submitted by Mr. Michael Silbert (Raritan Township attorney), the township's position is that the action taken by this board is incorrect,” he said. “As noted in more details in that brief, this board did not have the jurisdiction to even entertain the action since the applicant did not meet the eligibility criteria to be protected under Right to Farm. That is first and foremost.”
“Secondly, it's the township’s position that the board doesn’t want to even consider the concerns of the township, or to consider the local conditions of the township, or the residents,” he added. “At the hearing (on Oct. 13), members of the public were either cut off or limited in their opportunity to actually discuss issues of concern.”
For those reasons, Robertson said, the resolution should be reconsidered and rescinded.
“And if the board is not going to do that, this is to make the board aware that the township is considering all possible legal options,” he said.

A Hunterdon County military hero, who lost his life in Vietnam 53 years ago, was honored posthumously at the county’s annual Veterans Recognition Medal ceremony on Veterans Day.
Also at the Nov. 11 ceremony, held in the Assembly Room at the County’s Route 12 Complex in front of a large crowd of family members and livestream viewers, Hunterdon officials awarded medals recognizing service to the nation by nearly 40 veterans.
An Army helicopter pilot who lost his life attempting to save a fellow crewman from the wreckage of his downed helicopter in 1969, Readington’s Dale Harry Haver’s posthumous medal was accepted by his twin brother, Don Haver, who also served as an Army officer in Vietnam and was the event’s guest speaker.
U.S. Rep. Tom Malinowski also presented the Haver family, 15 of whom traveled from around the country to attend the ceremonies, with the various medals for gallantry and heroism, including the Bronze Star and Air Medal, that had been awarded to Dale Haver but needed to be re-issued after being lost over the years.
Readington Township Mayor Juergen Huelsebusch announced at the ceremony that the Whitehouse Greenway has been re-designated the Lt. Dale Haver Whitehouse Greenway in honor of the fallen hero.
Board of Commissioners Deputy Director Zach Rich said, “When you learn of the heroic sacrifice made by Dale Haver, it reminds us we can never thank enough those who now serve and have served in our nation’s military. This event is, in my opinion, the single most meaningful county event each year and I am honored to participate.”
The Hunterdon County Veterans Recognition Medal, created more than 20 years ago by county resident and Vietnam veteran the late John Hatzikalifas, was awarded to veterans spanning more than 60 years of military service to the nation, from the Cold War to present day service around the world.
Each medal recipient was told ‘Your service to and sacrifice for our nation are greatly appreciated by those of us gathered here and all the people of Hunterdon County.’
County officials participating in honoring the Veterans and presenting medals included; Surrogate Susan Hoffman, Sheriff Fred Brown, Prosecutor Renee Robeson, Deputy Director Rich and Commissioners Shaun C. Van Doren, Susan Soloway and Jeff Kuhl.
Pastor Konrad Szierer, a Marine Corps veteran of service in Vietnam, provided the invocation and benediction for the ceremonies.
Dan ‘Dr. D.’ Torrone served as Master of Ceremonies for the event, which was held in person for the first time since 2019 and was also live streamed. A video of the event is available at https://youtu.be/PRwsOl3D4Nc.
In addition to the posthumous recognition of Lt. Haver, recognized were:
In addition to the Veterans Day Recognition Medal ceremony, the bell at Hunterdon County’s Historic Courthouse in Flemington tolled 21 times in honor of veterans, at the 11th hour, on the 11th day of the 11th month, as it has every year on Veterans Day since 2018′s commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.
