Understanding the Importance of Testosterone in Your Body

head-bottom

When people hear the word "testosterone," they often associate it with overly aggressive or macho men. However, testosterone really has little impact on a man's masculinity, at least from a social standpoint. Rather, testosterone plays a much more important role in male development, from puberty to the end of life.

As the primary androgen, testosterone helps men develop typical male characteristics and is vital for the production of sperm. The pituitary gland and hypothalamus in the body control testosterone, and it helps men develop and maintain various functions such as:

  • Sexual Desire or Libido

What Causes Low Testosterone?

head-bottom

As men age, they may experience lower levels of testosterone, also known as low T. This natural decline in testosterone can also be caused by drug abuse, obesity, prescribed medications, or testicle injuries. When testosterone levels decrease, it can affect the body's balance of testosterone and estrogen, leading to an increase in abdominal fat and higher levels of estrogen. This hormonal imbalance can lead to a variety of issues that, when left untreated, can affect your quality of life in several ways.

The most common low testosterone signs in males include the following:

  • Erectile Dysfunction or ED
  • Increased Amounts of Body Fat
  • Lack of Concentration
  • More Irritability
  • Low Libido
  • Low Sperm Count
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Decrease in Muscle Mass
  • Lack of Motivation

If one or more of those symptoms are happening in your life right now, it could be because your body has a lack of testosterone. The only way to find out for certain is to have your testosterone levels tested at a qualified Sexual Wellness and Holistic Clinic, such as NV Medical Winter Park. If testing shows that you have low T, the next step in your recovery could be TRT in Winter Park, FL.

The Risks of Living Life with Low Testosterone

head-bottom

Some men may think to themselves, "I don't have the time or patience to undergo TRT in Winter Park, FL." While TRT treatments are quick, easy, and require no recovery time, we at NV Medical Winter Park understand that this type of therapy is not for everyone. Some men choose to rough it through this stage in their life, despite available solutions. While that is certainly an option, if you're considering this route, you should know that more is at risk than low libido and lack of motivation.

As frustrating as those symptoms can be, living with low testosterone often results in more serious issues that risk the health of your vital organs. If you're on the fence about bringing your testosterone levels back within normal range, keep these health risks in mind.

Diabetes

Diabetes

For those who have been diagnosed with pre-diabetes or diabetes, it's possible that low testosterone levels could be a factor. Research has shown that men with low testosterone are more likely to develop diabetes as they age, and those with diabetes are also more likely to have low testosterone. Additionally, men with low T may struggle with insulin resistance. While testosterone replacement therapy won't cure diabetes, studies have suggested that men with healthy testosterone levels tend to have better blood sugar levels and a lower risk of obesity.

Heart Disease

Heart Disease

If a doctor has informed you that you have high blood pressure, you may be curious about its root cause. Could it be due to aging? Is it hereditary? Or is there another factor at play? Research has shown that men who have low levels of testosterone are more likely to develop cardiovascular diseases. When testosterone levels are low, red blood cell production is hindered, which can speed up the accumulation of plaque in your arteries. Over time, this plaque buildup can result in severe issues such as heart attacks and strokes.

Issues with Weight and Obesity

Issues with Weight and Obesity

Many men face the challenge of excess body fat as they age, which can be discouraging when you're trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Despite eating well and exercising regularly, stubborn fat around the waistline can be difficult to get rid of. However, it's important to note that low testosterone levels may be the underlying cause. Studies have shown a correlation between low T and obesity, as testosterone helps regulate metabolism by controlling insulin, glucose, and fat. The good news is that undergoing TRT in combination with proper diet and exercise can lead to weight loss and improved blood glucose and low-density cholesterol levels.

Anemia

Anemia

Anemia occurs when the body lacks or has dysfunctional red blood cells, resulting in reduced oxygen supply to organs. Men with low testosterone levels are at a higher risk of anemia since testosterone plays a role in healthy red blood cell production. A study conducted in 2009 revealed that older men with low T have five times more chances of being anemic compared to men with normal testosterone levels. Although testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is not a cure for anemia, it can help in the production of more red blood cells, which may prevent anemia.

TRT in Winter Park, FL: A Reliable Solution to Low Testosterone

head-bottom

To fully appreciate the advantages of testosterone replacement therapy from NV Medical Winter Park, it's crucial to grasp its mechanism. Testosterone was first synthesized in a laboratory in 1935 and has been prescribed to counteract low testosterone levels in clinical settings ever since. Over the last few decades, it has emerged as one of the most commonly prescribed medications in the US.

TRT works by restoring a healthy testosterone level in men who suffer from low T. Essentially, TRT is similar to insulin for people who have diabetes. The body lacks sufficient production of an essential hormone, and so requires an exogenous source to replace it - testosterone in this case. Although most men begin TRT after the age of 50, more men in their 30s and 40s are having their testosterone levels tested at wellness clinics like NV Medical Winter Park. If you're experiencing symptoms like ED but think you're too young for testosterone replacement therapy, it's worth having your T levels checked by a doctor.

Our TRT Process

After discussing the potential risks and benefits of testosterone therapy with your healthcare provider, a decision can be made about whether to proceed with treatment.

There are several methods for administering testosterone, such as a gel that is applied to the skin, injections, pellets that are placed under the skin, and a new oral pill that has recently become available. Once treatment begins, regular monitoring of your lab results is essential to ensure that the therapy is effective and to make any necessary adjustments based on additional factors. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms and are interested in exploring testosterone therapy, please reach out to NV Medical Winter Park to schedule a private and confidential consultation with our Board-Certified Urologist.

Insufficient levels of testosterone can result in various health issues for your muscles and organs, including cardiovascular problems that warrant attention.

However, a recent study involving more than 80,000 men revealed that individuals whose testosterone levels were brought into normal ranges were 36% less likely to suffer from a stroke. They were also 24% less likely to experience a heart attack. That's a big deal! These positive findings suggest that TRT in Winter Park, FL, can effectively promote heart and blood health.

Enhanced Cognition and Memory

Having lower levels of testosterone can negatively impact one's quality of life, as it can lead to symptoms such as depression, fatigue, and irritability. However, studies have shown that this may only be true for men with hypogonadism, as men who experience a natural decrease in testosterone over time did not show an increase in depression.

Additionally, males with hypogonadism reported improvements in mood and well-being, as well as reduced fatigue and irritability. Some research has even suggested that this treatment may be an effective form of anti-depressant therapy.

A subsidiary of a physician-led development group spearheading construction projects throughout Orlando recently bought land at a busy Winter Park intersection.

Verax Lakemont LLC, owned by Orlando-based Verax Investments, paid $2.75 million to Fifth Third Bank for an assemblage of properties at the northwest corner of Aloma and North Lakemont avenues.

The deal closed Feb. 7 for the 1.24-acre assemblage, which is less than a quarter-mile north of AdventHealth Winter Park.

Matthew Weinberger, vice president of health care real estate for Lee & Associates in Central Florida, represented Verax Investments in the acquisition.

In an emailed statement to Orlando Business Journal, Javier Miller — a principal for Verax Investments — said the group has plans for a 17,000-square-foot medical office building on the site and has begun the architectural and civil engineering work.

"This is a tremendous opportunity for us at Verax to develop prime real estate at the gateway into Winter Park," Miller wrote. "With our strong relationships with the health care systems in town, we are confident that a tenant will see the value at this location. Verax is bullish in our vision of medical real estate throughout our community."

Orange County records further show Verax Lakemont LLC secured a $1.4 million mortgage from Fairwinds Credit Union related to the purchase.

As for why the seller decided to part with the property, Fifth Third Bank's Orlando market President Greg Dryden noted the bank's strategy shift since it bought the land in 2007.

"We continually evaluate branch placements in conjunction with our new and planned Fifth Third locations, and we determined that this property was no longer needed," Dryden told OBJ via an emailed response. "Fifth Third continues to explore expansion opportunities in Central Florida. We recently opened our Tuskawilla location and have another location planned to open in Lake Nona next quarter."

Meanwhile, the acquisition is the second for Verax Investments in Winter Park in the past year.

Last July, Verax Florida LLC paid $2.25 million for an assemblage at the corner of West Fairbanks Avenue and Clay Street. The group plans to build a 20,000-square-foot medical office development there.

Apart from the two Winter Park medical office buildings, Verax has been busy with similar projects — some of which include a retail component — in Lake Mary, Oviedo and Winter Garden.

SURVEY: OBJ is gathering information for a new series called Advance CFL, which will provide our readers with an opportunity to share what the region does well and what needs improvement. We need your input! Click here for the 15-question Advance CFL survey.

Verax is not alone in investing in medical office space in Central Florida, either:

Orlando Health starts construction of $160M pediatric medical office building

AdventHealth nearly finished with $47.5M medical office building in Daytona

According to Colliers, metro Orlando is the third-largest medical office market in the state, with 10.7 million square feet of space. The region had an occupancy rate for those buildings of 93.2% in third-quarter 2023, up 50 basis points from the prior quarter.

"Strong demand for medical outpatient space is driving demand for new supply with 665,000 square feet currently under construction in third-quarter 2023 and 454,000 square feet delivering in third-quarter 2023," read the report.

WINTER PARK, Fla. —

A Winter Park school is one of several in Florida losing funding from the state. The funds are subsidies for school choice scholarships.

Gov. Ron DeSantis says it’s because the schools have ties to China’s Communist Party, or CCP.

The State Department of Education is acting against the Park Maitland School and several others in the state because of the claims of the schools’ affiliations.

“We have two children here at the school, one in kindergarten, one in second grade,” said Joslyn Bear.

Joslyn and her husband David Bear are not only parents, but they also attended the school years ago.

Now, the future of the school, and who could afford to attend, is in limbo.

“We feel extremely upset, not only for our own children but all the families that are affected,” said Joslyn Bear.

Park Maitland is one of several schools in the state now with suspended eligibility for that important school choice scholarship funding.

David said without the school’s funding, parents are blindsided with hundreds or thousands of dollars they suddenly must come up with. They said it could ultimately lead to their kids’ friends, or even teachers, leaving.

“I really find it abhorrent that a political PR move would be done at the expense of children and the children’s educational and social experiences,” David Bear said.

According to Park Maitland’s website, the school is run by Spring Education Group.

Spring Education Group itself is owned by a Chinese-based investment group, Primavera Capital Group.

“There’s has never been any sort of teaching of communism or Chinese ideology. It’s the furthest thing from our mind,” Joslyn Bear said.

DeSantis, Education Commissioner Manny Diaz Jr., and Park Maitland all issued statements on the matter.

“The Chinese Communist Party is not welcome in the state of Florida,” said Gov. Ron DeSantis. “We will not put up with any attempt to influence students with a communist ideology or allow Floridians’ tax dollars to go to schools that are connected to our foreign adversaries.”

“The Chinese Communist Party has no place in our schools,” said Education Commissioner Manny Diaz Jr. “I am grateful for Governor DeSantis and the Florida Legislature for their work to keep students and our communities safe from foreign countries of concern.”

Park Maitland School released a statement, saying:

“We have received notice from the State that our eligibility for Florida Choice school funds has been suspended. We were not contacted in advance and are seeking more information regarding the basis for this decision. In the meantime, we will be working directly with our families to ensure they can remain enrolled in our school," Park Maitland said in a statement.

"We are regularly acknowledged as one of the best private schools in our area and have a track record of delivering outstanding educational outcomes, which is why parents choose us. Our schools are locally run, abide by local, state, and federal laws, and do not have ties to any government or political party, either foreign or domestic. Our curriculum is accredited, standards-based, and academically rigorous," Park Maitland said in a statement.

Cailey Myers, a Communications Director for the Florida Department of Education sent WESH this statement.

"The Department investigated these four schools that have ties to the CCP and China and verified their connections. As you can see, the four schools in the press release (all owned by the same company) have the following statement on their websites confirming their affiliation with Spring Education Group and Primavera Holdings:

'Spring Education Group is controlled by Primavera Holdings Limited, an investment firm (together with its affiliates) principally based in Hong Kong with operations in China, Singapore, and the United States, that is itself owned by Chinese persons residing in Hong Kong.'

On September 22, the Department of Education sent letters to the schools notifying them of their immediate suspension from the school choice scholarship program, and they have 15 calendar days to appeal the decision."

Homemade explosives found in house: Deputies

If you heard a big boom in Winter Park on Friday, that may have just been the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office. Deputies had to purposely detonate explosives to make sure they didn’t go off by accident after they found a bunch of homemade bombs in a neighborhood in Winter Park, according to the sheriff's office.

WINTER PARK, Fla. - What started as a search warrant for drugs at a home in Winter Park on Thursday ended up with the evacuation of several homes in the area after a homemade explosive was found, according to the Seminole County Sheriff's Office.

Mark Severson, 40, was arrested and charged with possession of explosives and manufacture of explosives with intent to do bodily harm, according to deputies. Records show that Severson is a system engineer for an unnamed intelligence analyst.

The area where all this happened was in the middle of a quiet subdivision in Winter Park. Neighbors said this is not the first time this house has received attention from law enforcement. One man said he had noticed deputies near the home for the past few weeks. Another neighbor, Melanie Geiger, said she saw the same thing but didn’t think much of it.

"I always saw sheriffs go down that road, but I always thought they were just patrolling," said Geiger. "I had no idea."

Deputies executed a search warrant on Severson's home on Thursday for drugs, according to an affidavit. When they arrived, they found "numerous chemical powders" that were "consistent with pyrotechnic manufacturing and the manufacture of homemade explosives," deputies said. This discovery triggered a secondary search warrant to be obtained and executed, which was signed that day.

Deputies continued their search and tested the powders for explosive materials. They found a white crystalline powder which appeared to have been synthesized in the home, deputies said. It tested positive for triacetone triperoxide (TATP), a "highly volatile homemade explosive mixture that cannot be moved and must be disposed of in place due to the high likelihood of unintended detonation," the affidavit said.

Officials said they found half-a-pound of TATP.

Due to the powder's volatility, detectives evacuated five homes in the immediate vicinity for a short time on Thursday and conducted reverse 911 calls to neighboring homes in the Winter Park neighborhood on Alena Court.

Neighbors were surprised at the news.

"It scared me," said Werner Theriauout, who lives on a street behind the house.

"I just ran inside, because I was hearing helicopters and stuff and I just didn’t want to be involved in any of it," said Geiger.

Officials decided not to remove the homemade explosives, but to dispose of them at the scene, a spokesperson for the sheriff's office said. So, the bomb squad blew it up right then and there.

"There was a big boom," said Theriauot. "Bunch of smoke going up in the air."

"I didn’t know what it was," Geiger added. "I just saw a bunch of smoke and everything,"

Severson was arrested and booked into the John E. Polk Correctional Facility. The sheriff’s office requested that a judge not let Severson out on bond, arguing that he’s a risk to the public, but the bond has since been granted at $37,500 bond.

"I’m kind of nervous that he could come back and make more explosives," said Geiger.

On top of charges of possessing an explosive device with intent to cause harm, Severson also faces charges for possession of MDMA and marijuana, plus possession of meth with intent to distribute.

Severson has been arrested in the past on charges of domestic battery, trespassing, and leaving the scene of a crash with property damages. As of Friday evening, Sanderson was still listed as an inmate at the Seminole County Jail.
