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 Ridge Wood heights, 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 Ridge Wood heights, 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:

Orlando area electric utilities are done or on their homestretch in returning power to homes and businesses cut off by Ian, a tropical storm by the time it tracked just south of the region.
Duke Energy stated Monday afternoon that it has restored nearly 1 million of its 1.9 million customers in the state and by the end of the day will have all outages repaired except for those involving extensive damage or flooding.
The second largest in Florida, the utility reported 15,000 customers across its territory had not been returned to the power grid Monday afternoon but did not specify how many of those were expected to be restored by midnight.
“We are aware of less than 200 homes in Orange County which are in a flooded area and cannot receive power,” said Audrey Stasko, a utility spokesperson. “For perspective we serve more than 400,000 customers in Orange County.”
Duke got help from 10,000 personnel from other organizations from as far as Canada. Those and Duke workers will be made available for helping out elsewhere in Florida, Stasko said.
“We still have work to do in some flooded areas, and we’ll be able to restore service there as soon as it is safe to do so,” Duke’s president in Florida, Melissa Seixas, said in a statement.
Orlando Utilities Commission, serving 260,000 customers in Orlando, St. Cloud and surrounding areas, reported late Monday that all had been returned to service except those with flooding problems or damage.
An OUC spokesperson said 306 in Orange and 48 in Osceola counties have not been reconnected because of flooding or damage.
The municipal utility brought in 65 safety evaluators from the Orlando area and 162 line personnel from Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, Missouri, Arkansas, Alabama, Indiana, Georgia and Tallahassee.
Additionally, 49 tree trimmers came from Tennessee, Georgia and West Virginia.
All of that workforce brought in for Ian’s aftermath has been released from OUC service.
The pockets of flooding or damage where customers remain without power include: Cherokee Drive and Summerlin Avenue, Vargas Street, South Ivanhoe Boulevard, President Barack Obama Parkway and Lenox Boulevard, North Goldwyn Avenue and West Colonial Drive, Texas Avenue south of New Hampshire, South Texas Avenue and Emperor Drive, South Texas Avenue and West Oak Ridge Road, Poinsettia Avenue and Shady Lane Drive, North Mills Avenue and Lakeshore Drive, Pomelo Drive and Vanguard Street, John Young Parkway and Colonial Drive, Raleigh Street and Lenox Boulevard, Texas Avenue and Forest Club Drive, and Piedmont Court and Cadogan Avenue.
Winter Park’s municipal utility declared its restoration for 15,000 customers as complete on Sunday.
Mayor Phil Anderson credited the city’s effort to relocate electric utility infrastructure to underground, now about 73 percent complete, as a decisive difference with Ian.
“At the height of the storm, approximately 3,800 electric utility customers were without power. In comparison, during the peak of Hurricane Irma in 2017, more than 9,000 customers were out of power,” Anderson said in a statement to customers.
“This difference in power outages from 2017 to 2022, and the city’s ability to respond quickly, is due to the city’s commitment to underground its power lines that began in 2008, three years after the city acquired the utility in 2005,” Anderson said.
Kissimmee Utilities Authority, with nearly 90,000 customers in north Osceola County, also had said its restoration work is complete except for flooded areas, including the Good Samaritan Village, North Central-Woodside and McLaren neighborhoods.
A spokesperson said 1,024 customers were still without power and most of those are in Good Samaritan Village.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Week 3 of the high school football season is mostly in the books, with just four Saturday games remaining.
Three of those come in the Baker’s Sports Border Classic in Brunswick, including St. Augustine and Coffee, and Baker County against Richmond Hill. There’s also a champ against champ showdown between Madison County and Fitzgerald. All three of those games will be televised live on WJXT Channel 4, and streamed on News4JAX.com and News4JAX+.
The other Saturday game is a Clay County clash between Orange Park and Clay in a 9:30 a.m. game that was moved to then due to weather.
The headlining news in Week 3 centered around the Border Classic games, including News4JAX Super 10 No. 2 Bolles struggling on offense in a 20-3 loss to Brunswick. The Bulldogs mustered a Matthew Berry field goal in the game. They led at the break, but a 1-yard touchdown run by TJ Mitchell after an interception by Tavion Gibson gave Brunswick a 7-3 lead that it wouldn’t relinquish.
Earlier Friday, University Christian used its defense to crush Charlton County 33-0. Charlton had owned the rivalry with UC, winning games in 1979, 1990, ‘91, ‘92 and ‘93, nearly all of those comfortably. This one was never in doubt.
Orel Gray had a rushing touchdown right off the bat and Alan Woods had a pick six after that to push UC (3-0) in front 14-0 with just eight minutes gone in the opening quarter. A Brady Wright 3-yard scoring run just before half slammed the door on any hope of a Charlton rally.
Other Friday night notables included First Coast going on the road and handling Ocala Forest, 36-22, ending a 13-game losing streak that dated back to 2020.
Super 10 fourth-ranked Fleming Island got a test from Nease, but pulled away for a 19-14 win to move to 3-0. Sixth-ranked Jackson beat Fletcher for the second time in as many years, a 13-10 overtime classic that pushed the Tigers to a 3-1 mark with Spruce Creek up next.
Providence beat Wolfson in an 18-14 slugfest, giving first-year Stallions coach Mo Williams, a former Jaguars offensive tackle, his first coaching victory.
How about the 3-0 start by Palatka. The Panthers, who were coming off back-to-back one-win seasons, haven’t started this well since longtime coach Jim McCool’s final season in 2003. Palatka started that season perfect through seven games before a 7-0 loss to Clay.
The Panthers will be favored to stay unbeaten through Week 5 (opponent Lake Weir is winless and just got starched 40-0 by previously winless Ridgeview on Friday night) and should face off with a 3-1 Tocoi Creek (provided the Toros beat Ridgeview) in Week 6. That’s quite the start for coach Patrick Turner and the Panthers.

The annual Oak Ridge citywide leaf pickup program begins Nov. 21.
The program is coordinated by Waste Connections of Tennessee. Collection efforts will follow the proposed schedule as closely as possible, the city news release stated. ote that the proposed schedule is a general guide and can vary considerably from the actual schedule due to weather conditions, resident participation, and the amount of leaves needed to be picked up.
The following guidelines will help make the leaf pick-up process easier for Waste Connections crews and homeowners:
Residents should place their leaves near, but not beyond the curb. Leaves must not be placed on the sidewalk or in the street, parking spaces, or drainage ditches due to posing a pedestrian or traffic hazard and possibly clogging the storm drains. Hazards that are created by improperly placed leaves will be removed by the City at the resident's expense.
Leaves must be free of tree branches and twigs as these can cause the leaf vacuums to clog; therefore, delaying the pick-up schedule. Because of their impact on production, leaf piles found to contain these items will not be picked up.
All leaves must be placed outside fenced areas. If there is no other location on your property to rake your leaves, rake them to the end or side of your driveway. Leaves may also be placed in plastic bags and will be picked up at the curb during the scheduled program. Only leaves will be collected during this program. Citizens are reminded that the city-wide household trash and brush pick-ups are scheduled in April and May only.
At the completion of the day, a final drive through of each daily specified route will be done to verify and ensure that all leaves are collected during that time. Please be advised that delays may occur due to unforeseen weather conditions and level of resident participation. We appreciate resident patience should your leaves not be picked up on your specified day. Streets will be swept approximately two weeks after leaves are picked up in each designated area.
To view the schedule, visit OakRidgeTN.gov. Residents can now sign up for weekly email reminders of the pickup schedules. The schedules for household trash, leaf, and brush pickups will be emailed upon publication and weekly as crews may get ahead or behind schedule. To sign up, visit OakRidgeTN.gov and select the dropdown for ‘NEWS’ and then select ‘"Sign Up For Pickup Reminders."

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — The pain at the pump continues for drivers, and it just got a little worse.
The average for a gallon of regular gas reached an all-time high of $4.374 in the U.S. on Tuesday after increasing by 5 cents overnight, AAA said.
In the past two weeks, the national average for a gallon of gasoline has risen 25 cents.
The increase is primarily due to the high cost of crude oil, which was hovering near $100 a barrel Tuesday after surging to $110 last week.
The leader of the European Union called on the 27-nation bloc last week to phase out imports of crude oil within six months and refined products by the end of the year, causing oil prices to spike.
"With the cost of oil accounting for more than half of the pump price, more expensive oil means more expensive gasoline," AAA spokesperson Andrew Gross said.
Gas prices are slightly lower in Florida than the national average but have increased in recent weeks after a slight dip in April.
The average price for a gallon of gas in Florida is currently $4.282 with Palm Beach County leading the state at $4.446, according to AAA.
The cost to fill up on the Treasure Coast is slightly lower than in South Florida with drivers paying $4.344 in Martin County, $4.30 in St. Lucie County and $4.319 in Indian River County.
Before the surge in fuel costs, driver Shadae Lewis said she was paying about $50 to fill up her gas tank.
But Tuesday, at $4.99 a gallon, she shelled out a whopping $85.
"It's a lot, but you’re going to need gas … you got places to go, so you can't really argue about it," Lewis said.
Gas prices in Florida hit previous record levels in early March, reaching $4.21 per gallon.
These figures are a dramatic increase from what Florida drivers were paying at this time last year when the average price to fill up was $2.876.
AAA said fuel prices could continue to rise as the global oil supply remains tight and the market remains highly volatile.
"We're seeing steady drops in gasoline supply here in the United States, and that's ultimately driving gas prices higher," AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins said. "So, you have less supply at a time when demand is really increasing because of summer travel right around the corner."
According to a report released Tuesday from AAA, people living in the Sunshine State are more comfortable traveling now than at any other time since the pandemic began.
The study found that 51% of Floridians still plan to travel this summer while finding other ways to offset the high costs of fuel.
"They might be taking shorter trips, traveling closer to home, fewer trips or just making adjustments in their budget," Jenkins said.
But for residents like Alfonso Pagan, that won't be the case. He said his vacation money this summer will be going toward his gas tank and rent.
"And now the new lease is $1,800, so it's not as easy especially if you live by yourself. No, [I] can't afford it," Pagan.
