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 Somerset, 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 Somerset, 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:

New Jersey has had at least 214 reported cases of monkeypox spanning 13 counties, state Department of Health officials said Friday.
The federal government declared the monkeypox outbreak a national public health emergency Thursday after more than 7,100 Americans reported contracting the virus. The designation will allow the Biden administration to use federal money and other resources to combat the virus, which causes pimple-like bumps, fever, fatigue and other symptoms in those who are infected.
Infections have been on the rise in New Jersey, from 45 total cases two weeks ago to 214 total cases as of Friday. That’s a 375% increase.
Cases have been diagnosed in 13 counties: Bergen, Burlington, Camden, Essex, Hudson, Mercer, Middlesex, Monmouth, Morris, Ocean, Passaic, Somerset and Union counties.
Hudson County reported the most cases with 67 as of Friday, followed by Essex County with 45 cases and Bergen County with 24 cases, state officials said.
Atlantic, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester, Hunterdon, Salem, Sussex and Warren counties have not reported a positive case, health department data shows.
In counties with less than five cases, the state has not released the specific number of cases to protect patient privacy, officials said.
Cases have also increased dramatically across the country. In the two-week period from July 20 through Wednesday, reported cases in the U.S. nearly tripled, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
New Jersey residents should remain cautious, but take the declaration of the national public health emergency as a good sign, said Stephanie Silvera, an epidemiologist and professor at Montclair State University.
Public health emergencies allow the government to more easily allocate resources to respond to outbreaks, which is positive, Silvera said. It could also help the public take things more seriously, she said.
“It also hopefully signals to people who may have thought that this is a disease for other people in other places, that they can be affected by it,” Silvera said.
Residents should continue to practice common disease-prevention tactics, including washing your hands and not going out if you feel sick. While not an airborne virus, monkeypox can be spread through droplets and saliva, so wearing a mask if you think you might have been exposed to the virus is a good idea, Silvera said.
Those in high-risk groups should get the monkeypox vaccination, the health department says. High-risk groups include men who have sex with men and anyone who had contact with someone who tested positive or attended an event where there was a known monkeypox case.
But state officials acknowledge it has been tough for some residents to track down a vaccine in New Jersey.
“Vaccine availability has been limited,” Nancy Kearney, a spokeswoman for the Department of Health, said in a statement. “Demand is high and appointments are being filled quickly.”
As of Monday, the state had received about 5,500 doses, she said. An additional 14,520 doses are expected in the coming weeks, including a shipment of 5,900 which should be delivered this week, she said.
There are currently five monkeypox vaccination sites in New Jersey:

As she stood on the diamond of TD Bank Ballpark in Bridgewater, Grace Patella couldn’t help but feel overwhelmed by the number of purple shirts she saw in honor of her little brother.
“I think there has to be around 500 people who came out for him,” Patella said. “It’s just amazing. I’m so proud of my little brother, and I know he’ll be remembered for a long time.”
Ron Mazzola, a longtime volunteer for New Jersey high school athletics, was honored Thursday at the Yankees’ Double-A affiliate Somerset Patriots home game against New York Mets affiliate Binghamton Rumble Ponies. The 61-year-old passed away unexpectedly in February.
During the pregame ceremony, members of Mazzola’s family came down to the field while a public address announcer read a special message in honor of Mazzola’s achievements. Soon after, a moment of silence was held for Mazzola prior to the first pitch. Images of the Old Bridge Township resident appeared on the scoreboard throughout the ceremony.
Several hundred traveled across New Jersey to watch the ceremony, including family, friends and athletes who sported purple shirts in reflection of Mazzola and the Old Bridge community.
The tribute deeply touched Luca Rispoli, one of Mazzola’s closest friends.
“Yes, it’s emotional, but I also see a lot of joy in this event,” Rispoli said. “And just seeing his family and friends in so many different circles of his life represented here is really special. They’re here, not only because of the baseball, but they’re here because of Ron and because of how much [Mazzola] meant to them and how much they love him. And Ron loved them too.”
Mazzola was dubbed “The Voice Of Old Bridge” for his involvement with the athletic programs in the area, serving as a P.A. announcer for the high school football and wrestling programs for several years. He also coached youth baseball, soccer and basketball.
Want to bet on sports?
His reach didn’t stop at Old Bridge, as Mazzola helped manage NJSIAA wrestling tournaments across the state for over a decade and served as a public announcer for Rutgers wrestling for three seasons.
“He’s just a great person, and it’s not just about his [volunteer work],” Old Bridge athletic director Dan DiMino said. “Any time you saw Ron, even if I didn’t see him for a week or a couple of months, he always asked about your family and how you were doing first. He cared about you and his family and if there were anything that he could do to help you or a family member out, he’d be the first one to step up. And I think that’s what the community sees for tonight, they knew that this was going to be a special night for Ron.”
Before his death, Mazzola was heavily involved in the Marisa Tufaro Foundation, which helped secure discounted tickets for Thursday’s game for the first 250 attendees from the Old Bridge community and beyond.
While DiMino wasn’t directly involved in organizing the event, he believes that this event was something that would’ve brought a smile to Mazzola’s face.
“Greg Tufaro reached out to me and thought of the idea [for the tribute],” DiMino said. “You have the Mets organization here, which Ron loves. He loves his family and the Old Bridge community. “I thought this was exactly what Ron would’ve wanted.”
DiMino said there will be a ceremony on Sept. 1 to name Old Bridge’s Lombardi Field press box after Mazzola. Spotswood High School also plans on inducting him into their Athletic Hall Of Fame.
“The [press box] was his home away from home,” DiMino said. “We’re just very excited about that moment and having another day where the Old Bridge community can come together and celebrate such an incredible life.”
Rispoli believes, however, that those ceremonies may not fully reflect his best friend’s impact on so many.
“I think what we all struggle with his loss is that he gave so much and I don’t think the community is ever going to find a way to honor him enough,” Rispoli said. “We’re always going to feel like we’re short. We’re always going to feel that void of his loss. But you know what? Because of him, people will want to be better in what they do. Because Ron would have wanted it that way.”

Somerset County Vocational & Technical Schools today welcomed Robert Presuto as the new Superintendent of Schools. Presuto, who was most recently the superintendent at Boonton Public Schools, brings 28 years of educational experience, with nearly 10 of those years serving as a superintendent.
Presuto said, “There are a myriad of aspects which attracted me to a vocational district in general. As an Alternate Route teacher of computer technology, I am connected to vocational and technical programs, as well as the staff and students who are very interested in teaching and learning them.” He added, “What excites me about SCVTS, in particular, are the boundless opportunities I see in this institution. These include the growth of the facilities and the student population, adding several new CTE programs, and for me personally, being involved in yet another large-scale construction project which is making these tremendous opportunities possible. This will be my fourth large-scale school expansion project in the past 20 years.”
“My first goal is to get to know everyone and subsequently, have everyone get to know me,” said Presuto. “In the process, I want to listen and understand what folks feel is both outstanding about SCVTS and the areas they believe can be improved. Respecting and continuing the positives is paramount; realizing and understanding where and how we can improve is what makes an organization truly exceptional. That’s ultimately what I would like to accomplish - leading and contributing to an exceptional place to teach and learn.”
Presuto also brings to SCVTS educational experiences from around the world. “I’ve had the opportunity to visit and be invited into school systems in several countries to learn more about them,” Presuto said. “To date, I’ve been to schools in Japan, China, and England. Stateside, I’ve visited many school systems, the most memorable of which was in Hawaii. It was a native Hawaiian school on the island of Molokai which was just incredible!”
“Ralph Waldo Emerson is credited with the two main pillars of my educational philosophy,” Presuto said. First, “‘The secret of education lies in respecting the pupil.’ If teachers let their students know that they both respect and care about them, they have surmounted perhaps the greatest hindrance to becoming a transformative educator.”
Secondly, “‘Knowledge exists to be imparted.’ There is so much to learn in the world, and so many sources we can learn from. As teachers, our mission is to impart whatever skills and/or knowledge we have to our students in the hopes that they will one day surpass that which we’ve taught them.”
Discussing the importance of vocational education, Presuto said, “I am a big believer in students becoming multi-faceted learners, and multi-skilled members of society. Vocational programs are valuable in terms of career readiness, learning to work with one’s hands, and developing problem-solving skills. CTE programs also provide an outlet for creativity and foster ingenuity. The cost of a two or four-year college program has become astronomically expensive for many, if not most families. If you can learn a trade or highly marketable skill right out of high school, for some young people this is a way to get a head start on the post-high school journey of joining the workforce and saving for one’s dreams and aspirations.”

New drought status maps issued Thursday morning show drought conditions have worsened in some parts of New Jersey and most of the state remains unusually dry because of the extreme heat and lack of heavy rain during the past several weeks.
Six counties have been elevated to “moderate drought” status — just one level away from severe drought conditions, according to the National Drought Mitigation Center, which updates its drought status maps every Thursday.
Moderate drought conditions are now affecting virtually all sections of Hunterdon, Middlesex, Somerset and Union counties, and parts of Essex and Hudson. Several other counties — including Monmouth, Morris, Atlantic, Cumberland and Cape May — still have “abnormally dry” conditions, along with small sections of other counties. (Those areas are shaded in yellow on the drought status maps.)
Earlier this week, as an eight-day heat wave was winding down and no heavy rain was in the forecast, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection asked residents and businesses to conserve water, and some water companies imposed water restrictions on its customers.
“Now is the time for New Jersey to be especially mindful of water usage and proactively moderate our consumption,” Commissioner of Environmental Protection Shawn M. LaTourette said in a release. “Although our reservoirs and other indicators are healthy, persistent hot and dry weather coupled with the high water demands of summer can quickly impact water supply. Simple steps, like reducing lawn and landscape watering, go a long way in preserving our water supplies and avoiding the necessity of significant restrictive measures.”
The company’s customers in Hunterdon, Mercer, Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean, Somerset and Union counties were asked to follow an alternating watering schedule for lawns, gardens, car washing and other outdoor water use to ease water demand. The schedule is based on house addresses, with odd-numbered homes allowed to water on odd-numbered days, and even-numbered homes allowed to water on even days.
The water restrictions are mandatory in Monmouth and Ocean counties, and voluntary in the other five counties, according to a customer notice issued by New Jersey American Water.
In all areas, the company advises customers to water their lawns or plants during early hours or late hours in the permitted days to help minimize evaporation.
There are a few exceptions to the New Jersey American Water restrictions:
Middlesex Water Company, which has more than 60,000 customers in Middlesex County and a small portion of Union County, issued a “voluntary water conservation notice” on July 21 asking all of its customers to reduce their water usage.
“Please voluntarily limit all non-essential water use until further notice,” the notice said. “Your cooperation will help to avoid more restrictive measures to reduce usage. Customers will be notified when the conservation notice is lifted.”
Some areas of New Jersey got a little relief from the super-dry conditions when isolated rain showers and thunderstorms popped up early Thursday morning, dropping a tenth of an inch to a quarter-inch of rain in parts of Middlesex and Monmouth counties and as much as an inch in parts of Somerset and Hunterdon counties, according to data from the Rutgers NJ Weather Network.
The National Weather Service says there’s a 20% to 40% chance of showers and thunderstorms Thursday afternoon and a 40% to 60% chance of downpours Friday afternoon and Friday evening. Forecasters say the storms will be isolated, so some areas of the Garden State won’t see a drop of rain.

Forecasters are calling for “dangerously hot” conditions on Thursday and Friday in New Jersey with widespread temperatures in in the upper 90s and a heat index well into the 100s.
A heat advisory takes effect at 11 a.m. Thursday for 17 of the state’s 21 counties on what will be the hottest day of this new stretch of uncomfortably warm conditions.
The advisory runs until 8 p.m. Friday in Bergen, Burlington, Camden, Essex, Gloucester, Hudson, Mercer, Middlesex, western Monmouth, Ocean, Passaic, Somerset and Union counties.
The advisory lapses at 8 p.m. Thursday in Morris, Hunterdon, Sussex and Warren. In those four counties, a heat index (how hot it feels when the humidity is factored in) of 100 to 103 is expected on Thursday.
While Atlantic, Cape May, Cumberland and Salem counties won’t be under the heat advisory, it will still be extremely hot and humid in those South Jersey areas with inland highs climbing into the 90s and a heat index of around 100 on Thursday.
Daily high temperature records could be broken in New Jersey on Thursday. The record high in Trenton for Aug. 4 is 98 in 1987. In Newark, it’s 100 in 1993. However, it appears Atlantic City’s Aug. 4 record high temperature of 98 in 1995 will not be broken.
Temperatures will be several degrees lower on Friday, but still plenty hot. There’s a chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms, though the timing and areas that might see rain are still highly uncertain, the weather service said in its Wednesday morning forecast discussion.
Wednesday will also be a warm, sunny day with highs in the low 90s likely across the majority of the state. Areas along the Jersey Shore will reach only the upper 70s and low 80s while highs in northwestern New Jersey will peak in the upper 80s.
Conditions won’t be nearly as humid Wednesday as they were on Tuesday thanks to lower dew points.
The early forecast for the weekend calls for precipitation chances both days with highs in the upper 80s on Saturday and low 90s on Sunday. Neither day is expected to be a washout as ample periods of dry conditions are likely both days.
Normal highs in early August in New Jersey are in the mid 80s.
