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 Tequesta, 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 Tequesta, 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:

TEQUESTA, Fla. (CBS12) — To combat record inflation, the fed is raising interest rates for the second time this year. It’s having a direct impact on the mortgage industry, including here in South Florida.
During the peak days of the pandemic, as fast as a house would go on the market, offers would come pouring in.
“If you’re buying a home (today), you’re in a really good spot to not have multiple offers and the craziness that we’re used to seeing the last two years,” said Tequesta real estate agent Holly Meyer Lucas.
With the recent news of the fed raising the interest rate by more than a half percentage point to try to slow inflation, the mortgage rate followed suit, so many prospective buyers are now adjusting their budgets since the cost to borrow money is going up. It’s up over five percent for the first time in over a decade.
"I do not expect moves of this size to be common,” Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said earlier this month.

But some good news for buyers. Shannon Pokorski, the contract manager in Meyer Lucas’s office, says sellers have gotten more realistic.
“Six months ago, they could shoot for the stars as far as pricing went. And a lot of times we could reach that or get even above ask. Whereas now, okay, looking at all the comps in the neighborhood,” she said.
Even as rates have gone up, people are still flocking to Florida. Meyer Lucas and her team recently secured six contracts for people moving here from out of state.
“The shift that we’re seeing in our market is happening. How extreme it’s going to be this time around remains to be seen, but locally in our market, because so many people are relocating here, that supply and demand is still going to be out of balance,” Meyer Lucas said.

UPDATED, Aug. 22, 9:45 a.m.: Jeffrey Soffer’s Fontainebleau Development purchased all of the units of a 53-year-old beachfront condo building in Tequesta, likely planning a new luxury project.
Property records show an affiliate of Aventura-based Fontainebleau Development paid about $100 million to acquire the entire Regency Condominium, at 250 Beach Road on Jupiter Island, in northern Palm Beach County.
Motcomb Estates, an investment vehicle for billionaire brothers Simon and David Reuben, who have worked with Soffer before, provided the developer with an $80.5 million loan. (In 2020, Reuben Brothers acquired a 25 percent stake in Soffer’s JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa.)
The Jupiter Island acquisition breaks down to about $2.5 million per unit for the 40-unit, eight-story building that was completed in 1969, which is a high price for a bulk condo purchase.
Phil Perko of Perko Development Partners is Fontainebleau Development’s partner on the deal. Perko, who has worked with the developer on its other two Jupiter Island projects, led the bulk condo acquisition and will work on project entitlements for the Regency condo site.
With control of the condo association, the developer terminated the condo, a required step in order to move forward with redevelopment. Sheryl Kass, general counsel at Fontainebleau Development, signed the termination.
Soffer’s firm, which owns the Fontainebleau Miami Beach resort, has two other luxury condo projects in the works nearby on Jupiter Island: the 10-story, 21-unit SeaGlass Jupiter Island, expected to be completed this year, and the planned 10-story, 26-unit Savoy Residences at 300 Beach Road, which is next to the Regency property. Prices for new units at the Savoy project start at $12 million.
Brett Mufson, president of Fontainebleau Development, declined to comment on the company’s plans for the Regency site.
Developers have long used bulk buyouts to take control of associations and eventually redevelop waterfront properties into luxury condo projects, but the trend has become more common following the deadly condo collapse in Surfside. The tragedy highlighted issues that older buildings often face, which can become too costly for unit owners, especially those on fixed incomes.
In those situations, sellers often make much more money than if they had sold their units individually. At the Regency Condominium, units traded for between $475,000 and $815,000 from 2020 to last year, according to Zillow.
Soffer completed a similar process at the properties where he is now building SeaGlass and plans to build the Savoy Residences, records show. On July 21, the town’s planning and zoning board recommended approval of Fontainebleau Development’s Savoy project. The village council will vote on it next.

TEQUESTA, Fla. (CBS12) — Tequesta Terrace, an assisted living facility, says long-term care facilities are experiencing staffing shortages.
Although this assisted-living facility is not experiencing that issue, Director Patti Robillard-Hudak sent a letter to the governor's office to raise awareness.
"This is what we do, we have a lot of retirees in the state of Florida,” said Robillard-Hudak.
Robillard-Hudak said besides coronavirus concerns, assisted living facilities are competing with unemployment benefits.
“The stimulus, in some way, has impacted us negatively,” she said. “If you’re unemployed and drawing out unemployment, you get an extra bonus. For us, it can be a bit of a problem.”
The staffing shortage is being reported nationwide. According to an analysis of government data by the U.S. Public Interest Research Group (PIRG) Education Fund, more than 3,000 nursing homes are in need of direct-care staff. A problem that existed since last May.
In Florida, AARP’s Nursing Home COVID-19 Dashboard shows a growing 20 percent of long-term care facilities are experiencing the same thing.
“The staffing agencies that we would normally turn and say, ‘listen, I need two people,’ they can’t bring people in either,” she said.
As the issue could impact resident care, Robillard-Hudak also asked the governor if an incentive program for nurses and aids will strengthen the workforce and protect the most vulnerable.
Florida lawmakers are currently eyeing a bill that would allow Florida’s Agency for Health Care Administration, the agency tasked with overseeing Florida’s skilled nursing facilities, to permit nursing homes to use “personal care attendants."
The goal is to enhance the workforce at struggling facilities during the pandemic. Opponents argue PCAs could replace the current staff on a permanent basis, and allow attendants to begin working in long-term care settings after only eight hours of training.
