It can be hard to hear for some, but getting older is just part of life. For many men, hitting a certain age signifies the beginning of a new chapter - where bucket list items are crossed off, and goals are accomplished. For others, however, aging is a scary prospect, filled with nagging injuries, embarrassing weight gain, and inability to perform intimately. Few things feel worse than realizing that you simply can't perform as you used to, whether on the basketball court or in the bedroom.
The reality is, as men get older and approach middle age, their testosterone levels drop. When a male's testosterone levels get lower, it can cause a slew of unwanted symptoms like:
If you have noticed any of the above symptoms and feel like you're just dragging yourself through life, don't lose hope. Many men around the country are experiencing the same feelings as you. Thankfully, you don't have to settle for the side effects of low testosterone. There are proven, easy steps that you can take to reverse the negative signs of aging.

testosterone levels. Unfortunately, when a man loses too much testosterone, it results in a condition called hypogonadism. Also called "Low T," testosterone loss due to hypogonadism must be replenished, or the male suffers from difficult, even debilitating symptoms.
We Work With
What pops up in your head when you think about testosterone? Many people associate testosterone with being overly aggressive, macho, and violent. However, the truth is that testosterone is a critical hormone for men and affects the male lifespan from puberty through old age. As a sex hormone, male testosterone is produced through the testicles. It becomes most prevalent during puberty.
Testosterone production is controlled by the pituitary gland at the base of a man's brain. This gland sends signals to the testes, which in turn produce testosterone. A feedback loop helps regulate the amount of testosterone in the blood. When levels are too high, the brain orders the pituitary gland to restrict production.
Cholesterol synthesizes the testosterone in your body. However, having high cholesterol doesn't mean you have high testosterone levels, too. T levels are too carefully controlled by your pituitary gland for cholesterol to raise testosterone levels.
During puberty, testosterone helps males develop:
Testosterone replacement is exactly what its name implies. It's a therapy for men that replaces diminished testosterone levels, which helps balance your hormones and ultimately improves your life. Also called androgen replacement therapy, TRT alleviates many of the side effects that men suffer from as a result of low testosterone.
Testosterone was originally synthesized in a lab in 1935. Its popularity has grown since, and today, it is among the most promising doctor-prescribed treatments for men in the United States.
So, how does testosterone replacement therapy work? TRT essentially gives you the testosterone needed to be healthy and have a properly functioning body. As the primary androgen for males, testosterone has a role in the natural processes your body needs for overall health. This extra hormonal intake positively affects patients and their general health, preventing diseases such as osteoporosis, cardiac diseases, and more.
Though there is an abundance of testosterone in your system throughout puberty and into your 20s, it gradually depletes with age. Sometimes, serious injuries and long-term conditions like diabetes affect testosterone levels. Unfortunately, when a man loses too much testosterone, it results in a condition called hypogonadism. Also called "Low T," testosterone loss due to hypogonadism must be replenished, or the male suffers from difficult, even debilitating symptoms.
Though some symptoms of low T are abundantly evident, not all men can immediately tell they may need TRT. If you're unsure, ask yourself these questions:
If you answered yes to any of those questions, it could be time to contact Juventee about a personalized TRT plan. Still unsure if you're experiencing symptoms of low T? We have compiled a more extensive list of signs below:
Low energy used to be considered a normal part of aging. Today, most doctors know better. Modern advances in medicine show that lack of energy and low T often go hand-in-hand.
If it's a huge struggle to keep up with your kids on the soccer field, or you just don't have the energy to be active, you may have low testosterone. Getting tired is normal, but if it's an ongoing problem affecting you and your family, it's time to consult a doctor.
Whether you're having a tough time getting through your day or can't finish normal activities, TRT in New Milford, NJ could be the solution.
You would think that lowered libido would be easy to pick up on, but when it happens gradually, it can be more difficult to diagnose. With that said, many men use TRT because they've lost that "spark" in the bedroom. It's not easy for a man to hear that they're not pleasing their partner because intimacy is an important part of a relationship.
The good news? Having a low libido doesn't have to be permanent. TRT treatments can help revert hormone levels to their normal range, making for a more enjoyable sex life.
If you're like millions of other men, hair loss is an unfortunate reality you don't want to think about. Closely related to hormone imbalances and testosterone decline, hair loss is about as distressing as it gets. This common symptom is often related to DHT - a derivative of testosterone that can cause hair follicles to die.
Thankfully, a carefully monitored TRT regimen can help restore hair, especially when combined with methods like plasma-rich therapy. While it's true that you can't change your genes, you can change the effects of low testosterone in your body, so hair loss isn't your only reality.
Weak erections - it's an uncomfortable subject for men to talk about. It's even worse to experience the symptom in the heat of the moment. Despite being very common, men shame themselves when they can't achieve an erection. And while there are many reasons for this malady, low testosterone is often a contributing factor.
Fortunately, you don't have to live with weak erections forever when you balance your hormones with a personalized TRT treatment plan from Juventee.
You're feeling down about everything and can't figure out why you feel crummy about life. You're successful at work but feel unaccomplished. If you're experiencing symptoms like these, you may be depressed - and it could be stemming from low testosterone.
Studies show that men with depression and high cortisol levels also commonly have low testosterone. Because higher cortisol levels can lead to low T, 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, when used in conjunction with therapy, is TRT. When TRT is used to replenish hormone levels, men enjoy a lighter, more optimistic mood. That's great news for depressed men who have had little-to-no success with powerful anti-depression meds.
Experts have found that men who lose a week's worth of sleep may experience a drop in testosterone by as much as 15%. These findings are alarming and may suggest that sleep loss lowers T levels and affects wellbeing.
If you find yourself exhausted at the end of the day but toss and turn all night long, it could be time to have your testosterone levels checked. TRT may restore your testosterone levels which can help you sleep better with proper exercise and diet.
Are you struggling to lift weights in the gym or find that you can't pick up items that used to be easy to lift? Studies show that inactive men can lose .5% of muscle strength each year after the age of 25. When you hit 60, muscle loss doubles every ten years. While muscle loss is common with age, it can also be linked to low T.
Testosterone is a crucial piece needed for building and retaining muscle mass. That's why many doctors are prescribing TRT for males experiencing sharp declines in strength and muscle mass. Whether your workouts are losing steam or you're having problems lifting items that aren't very heavy, don't blame it all on age. You could be suffering from hypogonadism.
Nobody likes to gain weight, even though our society is more accepting of overweight people than ever before. Despite diets and carb cutting, many men aren't able to get rid of excess belly and body fat, increasing the chances of heart disease and cancer.
Sometimes, male weight gain isn't caused by sweets and carbs but by hormone imbalances that slow the metabolism. This phase of life is called andropause and occurs when testosterone levels are low. Combining a low metabolism with other symptoms like high cortisol levels can be a recipe for a double-chinned disaster. Fortunately, TRT treatments and physician-led weight loss programs can correct hormone imbalances and lead to healthy weight loss for men.
The enlargement of male breast tissue, also called "man boobs," is a fairly common condition that many men have. Though it is closely associated with diet and other life choices, increased fatty tissue is often caused by hormonal imbalances.
If you're approaching middle age 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.
The human body is amazing in so many ways. Still, we have to optimize it every now and then using science, medicine, and hard work. After 40, you may notice that your body is changing, but symptoms like low libido and lack of motivation don't have to be permanent.

NEW MILFORD, N.J. -- Bergen County homeowners and officials are demanding answers from a water company after major flooding last week in New Milford.
Some say the company could do more to mitigate flooding in the area, CBS2's Kiran Dhillon reported Monday.
Andrew Tinker is fed up. His basement was underwater and his family was one of many who had to be rescued. He said it was the fifth time in 20 years that his home flooded.
"It's extremely inconvenient because I have a lot of stuff going on. I got no hot water now, no heat. So that's a challenge," Tinker said. "I'm frustrated, angry. What am I still doing here?"
Streets were submerged in waist-deep water and first responders used boats to reach people who were trapped in their homes.
Heavy rain that started Thursday night overwhelmed the Oradell Reservoir. The run-off swamped the Hackensack River, which crested Friday.
Bergen County Executive Jim Tedesco said the water company that controls the reservoir, Suez, did not inform local officials in time that flooding was possible so they, in turn, could urge residents to prepare.
"They know what's going to happen, right? They know what they're gonna do," Tedesco said. "Well why not tell us?"
Tedesco wants the company to commit to helping local officials mitigate flooding in the Hackensack River watershed area.
Suez executives said they're happy to meet, but they claim the company did notify local officials.
"We notified within probably a two-week timeframe that our reservoirs were full, so that any possibility of a storm of the magnitude that hit Thursday certainly could have caused that kind of flooding," said Rich Henning, a Suez spokesperson.
According to Suez, one solution to the area's flooding problem is a state program that purchases homes in the flood-prone area and knocks them down. But homeowners like Tinker say giving up their properties shouldn't be the only option.
"Somebody's gotta do something," Tinker said. "They should do it in a way where everybody can be saved."
Tinker wants officials to create a plan to help residents now, so he can stay in the home he loves and doesn't have to worry every time it rains.
The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection sent the following statement:
The Oradell Reservoir serves as a water supply reservoir. The dam was not built for flood control purposes. The dam functioned as designed during the storm that dropped up to 3.5 inches of rain April 6-7 across a watershed encompassing some 113 square miles. During the recent storm, Veolia Water operated the spillway and associated spillway gates in accordance with an operations plan designed to ensure the dam's safe operation.

Just two years ago, the possibility of reaching the NJIC final was an afterthought for the New Milford wrestling program.
It was just trying to survive.
New Milford only had six wrestlers in the program, and obviously had a tough time fielding a team in what was a 2-20-1 season. Fast forward two years later, the Knights are way up in numbers with 37 wrestlers in the program and thriving.
New Milford defeated Butler on the road in the NJIC semifinals, 46-24, on Tuesday evening to move its record to 9-6 on the year.
“I thought the team fought and wrestled very hard tonight,” New Milford head coach Ray Cottiers said. “I thought that Butler is a very tough team. They have some good wins under their belt this year. The boys showed up and rose to the occasion. We’re excited to be moving onto the finals.”
“I’m excited,” senior Ryan Hartung said. “I know my team put in the work. I know we’ve worked hard than a lot of teams in the NJIC, so I think we can get the job done. We knew what we had to do coming into it. We took our points where we needed to get them. We won the matches we were supposed to and won some we weren’t supposed to. That’s what really got it done.”
Butler forfeited three bouts on the evening, beginning with the first one at 106. Thus, the first matchup was at 113 pounds and a rematch of a Region 1 third-place match between Devin Ryan of New Milford and Jason Chrostowsky of Butler. Ryan dominated and was able to deliver a 16-7 major decision to get New Milford out to a 10-0 lead that would eventually grow out to as large as 37-0.
JoJo Langschultz recorded a quick pin in 31 seconds at 120, Butler forfeited at 126, Jerzey Ryan pinned at 132 in 1:25, Hartung pulled out a 7-1 decision at 138 and Butler forfeited at 144. Kris Dunn (165), Joey Tennant (175) and James Spreights (285) were also decision winners for the Knights.
New Milford started to have more success last season, which enabled more kids to want to come out to the team this year.
“Winning solves everything is the famous saying,” Cottiers said.” We had some success last year with four district champions and the team performed well. They were Group 1 Bergen County champions. Everybody in the school recognized this was a program on the rise and they want to be a part of it. We’ve loved having everybody.”
The Knights will now get a chance to prove just how far they have come with two chances against one of the most historic Group 1 programs in the state -- Emerson/Park Ridge. New Milford will square off with Emerson/Park Ridge both in the NJIC final round and in the first round of the North 1, Group 1 Tournament.
“It’s going to be cool,” Hartung said. “We know they’re a tough team, but we’re not going to back down. We’re going to bring it to them and get physical.”

The finals will be hosted by the Old Dominion Athletic Conference and Ferrum College.
W&L is coming off its third straight conference tournament championship titles (2020 and 2022 Centennial Conference and 2023 ODAC championships). The Blue and White will look to the senior class that has a wealth of experience at the regional and national level. Seniors Ryan Luth (Milford, Conn. / Joseph A. Foran) and Riley Parker (Virginia Beach, Va. / First Colonial) claimed automatic bids to the NCAA Championships during the 2022 season and were named All-Americans after finishing fourth and sixth in their respective weight classes during the tournament.
125 - Senior Riley Parker (Virginia Beach, Va. / First Colonial) is coming off a First-Team All-ODAC nod after he cruised through the ODAC Tournament. Parker currently owns a 22-2 record this season and is ranked No. 1 regionally. At the 2022 Southeast Regional Championships, Parker punched his ticket to the NCAA Championship after a third place showing and placed 6th nationally to earn an All-America accolade.
133 - David Rubin (Matawan, N.J. / Matawan Regional) will go into the weekend with a 22-7 record. The sophomore was the runner-up in the 133 weight class at the ODAC Wrestling Championships and named Second Team All-ODAC.

149 - First-year Colin Bridges (Virginia Beach, Va. / Frank W. Cox) is coming off a Third Team All-ODAC finish at the league championships. Bridges goes into the weekend with a 10-12 record. The first-year won the third place match with a pin just before the first period's clock expired.
157 - Two-time All-American, Ryan Luth (Milford, Conn. / Joseph A. Foran), returns to the regional championships looking to punch another ticket to nationals. Luth ran through the 157 bracket at the ODAC Championships to claim the title. Luth is currently ranked No. 1 in the southeast region and has a 14-0 record this year.
165 - With a 28-11 record, sophomore Harrison Kelly (Berkeley Heights, N.J. / Governor Livingston) is the sixth-ranked 165 weight wrestler in the region. Kelly is coming off a Third Team All-ODAC podium finish and will see his first NCAA post-season action.
174 - First-year Mark Troni (Denver, Colo. / Mullen) has a 20-9 overall record and was the runner-up in the ODAC Championships to be named Second Team All-ODAC.
184 - Senior Cameron Blizard (Greensboro, N.C. / Ragsdale) finished fourth in the 2022 regionals and just missed out on qualifying for nationals. Blizard owns a 17-5 record this year and is currently the fourth-ranked wrestler in the Southeast's 184 class.
197 - With a 21-6 record, junior John Ryan Sedovy (Lexington, Va. / Rockbridge) is ranked fifth in the region with a 21-6 record overall. Sedovy fell in the first place match at the ODAC championships and finished sixth at last year's regional tournament.

Park Ridge 39, Butler 35
Deron McLaughlin went 5-for-8 from the free-throw line, finishing with a team-high 13 points to lead second-seeded Park Ridge to a narrow victory at home over 15-seed Butler, 39-35, in the first round of the North Jersey, Section 1, Group 1 tournament.
McLaughlin scored what would be the game-winning basket on a putback with 35 seconds left to give Park Ridge a 37-32 lead as well as a pair of game-sealing free throws with five seconds remaining, with Butler’s Josh Emann hitting a 3-pointer in between to temporarily cut the lead to two.
While a matchup between a 15-seed and a 2-seed doesn’t always produce the most entertaining matchups, the Bulldogs (9-14) refused to see their season end without putting up a fight.
“Butler is incredibly well coached,” said Park Ridge head coach Brian Koch on his first-round opponent. “They play with such discipline and attention to detail. As I told my team, the seeds mean nothing in the state tournament. It is all about survive-and-advance, and we were able to do that today.”
Sam Fasola scored 12 points on four made 3-pointers while Zach Mallis added nine points for Park Ridge (17-7), which will host seventh-seeded Emerson Boro in the quarterfinal round on Wednesday.

Jason Ziemba scored 14 points with four made 3-pointers while Michael Dillon hit a pair of 3s and went 3-for-4 from the stripe, tallying nine points for Emerson Boro (13-12), which was outscored by a count of 14-6 in the fourth quarter before swinging the momentum with a dominant 12-4 OT period.
Emerson Boro has lost four of the last five games against quarterfinal-round opponent Park Ridge dating back to Feb. 2021, its only win in that span coming in the form of a dramatic 39-38 come-from-behind victory.
The teams have matched up well recently, with each of the last four contests being decided by a margin of seven or fewer points, including three by three points or fewer.
Midland Park falls to 9-16 with the loss.
Kittatinny 47, Waldwick 44
Mike Zoellner scored a team-high 20 points to lead ninth-seeded Kittatinny to a come-from-behind victory on the road over eighth-seeded Waldwick, 47-44.
Zoellner scored 12 of his 20 points in the fourth, including an and-1 to give Kittatinny a 45-42 lead with 1:50 remaining, as the Cougars outscored Waldwick by a count of 19-6 in the fourth quarter to complete the comeback.
Hunter Thibault tallied 13 points while Caedon Jones chipped in seven for Kittatinny (10-12), which will go on the road to face top-seeded Cresskill in the quarterfinal round on Wednesday night.
Waldwick drops to 11-14 with the loss.
Cresskill 47, Hawthorne 24
Marko Radovich made three 3-pointers on the way to a team-high 16 points to lead top-seeded Cresskill to a one-sided first-round victory at home over 16-seed Hawthorne, 47-24.
Cody Song notched eight points while Jack Hayward chipped in seven for Cresskill (16-9), which will host ninth-seeded Kittatinny in the nightcap of the quarterfinal round, with tipoff scheduled for 7 p.m.
The loss moves Hawthorne to 7-15 on the year.

New Milford falls to 10-14 with the loss.
Hasbrouck Heights 56, Mountain Lakes 49 (OT)
Jack Baker scored a game-high 23 points to lead fifth-seeded Hasbrouck Heights to a come-from-behind first-round victory at home over 12-seed Mountain Lakes, 56-49, in overtime.
Evan Werner, Caden DeRosa and Shane Ike had eight points apiece while Anthony Peterson chipped in seven for Hasbrouck Heights (18-8), which trailed by 13 at halftime before swinging the momentum with a 19-10 third quarter.
Hasbrouck Heights put on the clamps in the late stages of the game, allowing seven points in the fourth quarter and only four points in the overtime period.
Nick Shuhet and Nico Dunn scored 11 points apiece while Ben Miniter added eight points for Mountain Lakes, which falls to 8-18 with the loss.

Group 3 teams came out in full force, posting the three top scores of the event on Saturday in Hackensack, with Montville carding a 3,092 for the top team score at the North Jersey, Section 1 sectional tournament at Bowler City.
River Dell finished second in Graoup 3 with a 2,993 team total, followed by Old Tappan, which benefitted from a 695 from Ryan Woenne-McManus and posted a 2,969, the third-highest score of the day and enough to secure a wildcard selection for a chance to compete for a state championship.
The top two teams from each group -- as well as the subsequent three wildcards teams with the highest pin totals to not finish top two in their respective group -- will advance to compete in the state team tournament on Monday, Feb. 20 at Bowlero in North Brunswick.
“I’m super impressed on how we responded after an okay Game 1,” said Montville head coach Rick Crescente after his team’s sectional-title-winning performance. “We had River Dell and Old Tappan breathing down our neck.”
The Mustangs came out strong in Game 3, going six-plus frames before leaving one open on the way to their 99-pin win.
Montville will send three bowlers to the state individual tournament, with Tyler Polachek leading the way for the Mustangs with a 682 that was fifth-best among all bowlers. Jesse Kirschner (652) and Eli Kaufman (629) each finished within the top 25 -- the cutoff line for qualifying for state individuals, which will be held on Friday, Feb. 24 at Bowlero.
“These guys have been rolling together for years,” said Coach Crescente on his squad, which also benefitted from a 571 from Conrad Hahn and a 558 from Jack Sherman. “They knocked the conference, county, and sectional title off the list.”
Crescente’s Mustangs won a state title while competing in Group 2 last season, and will have to contend with talented Group 3 squads such as Jackson Memorial, Toms River East, Scotch Plains-Fanwood, Freehold Township and others in its attempt to go back-to-back this year.
“All we can do is worry about us,” said Crescente, acknowledging Group 3′s talent level. “And have a good day on the 20th and the 24th down at Bowlero.”
River Dell will also send three bowlers to North Brunswick, with Tom Short (675) finishing sixth overall, followed by a 19th-place finish from Matt McCusker (623) as well as a 611 from Evan Visaggio-Lopez, who took the 25th and final spot by just two pins ahead of Jefferson’s Sean Reiss.
The competition for the Group 2 sectional title was just about as close as could be, with Andrew Lee (634) and Owen Smith (614) qualifying for individuals and -- more importantly -- leading Glen Rock to a 2,844 team total, securing the crown by just two pins ahead of Jefferson.
The battle for Group 4 supremacy was another closely contested one, as Bergen Catholic carded a 2,942 to secure a sectional title, beating second-place Bergen Tech by just 27 pins. Liam Chin (638) and Justin Martin (620) both qualified for Bergen Catholic, while Bergen Tech saw monster performances from fourth-place Tim Porfido (687) and eighth-place Theo Zamora (660).
Group 1 was also fairly competitive, with Wallkill Valley (2,877) securing a sectional title by a margin of 50 pins ahead of Eastern Christian. Wallkill Valley was led by Jimmy Birchenough, who posted a 660 series to finish seventh overall and qualify for states, while Eastern Christian will send both Camden Vogel (641) and Hanyang Wang (617) to Bowlero.
Demarest posted a 2,838, earning a wildcard selection for the state team tournament behind a 636 from Kenneth Miner. Jake Willis finished third among individuals with a 689, helping propel Indian Hills to a 2,832 team score and the final wildcard spot by just 33 pins ahead of Fair Lawn.
Scott Sanczyk of Kinnelon posted the top individual score of the day, recording a 707 series to secure the high series in a field filled with talented bowlers.
