Testosterone Replacement Therapy in Harrison, ME

As men age, they experience both positive and negative changes. Many middle-aged men learn to let the little things go and focus on family and friendship. They develop new hobbies and reach their peak earning potential. On the flip side, many men undergo unexpected hormonal changes around this same age. That's a hard pill to swallow for a lot of males, but contrary to common belief, having low testosterone isn't reserved for elderly men.

Studies show that around 55% of males suffer from low testosterone. For many, that drop-off happens in their 40s and 50s. But the truth is that testosterone levels can start to decline as early as age 30, leading to various physical and emotional changes such as decreased energy, increased aches and pains, and even sexual performance issues.

If you're a man experiencing symptoms of low testosterone - like ED or erectile dysfunction - you may feel embarrassed, depressed, or like all hope is lost. Fortunately, nothing could be further from the truth. Male health clinics like Med Matrix offer advanced, FDA-approved treatments like testosterone replacement therapy in Harrison, ME, to help restore your hormone levels. When your hormones are balanced, it's almost like everything clicks back into place without having to take pills or suffer through surgery.

The Med Matrix Difference

Did you know that testosterone is the foundation of all male performance? It's the reason why, in your early 20s, you could have a fun night out on the town and wake up the next morning ready to hit the basketball court. It's the reason why you feel the drive to succeed and find a mate.

Unfortunately, testosterone levels start to decline around the age of 35 (and sometimes sooner, depending on various factors). Past that age, your T levels drop even more. 40% of men over 45 have sub-optimal levels, which can have a negative effect on things like your:

  • Energy Levels
  • Libido
  • Workout Recovery
  • Focus
  • Body Fat
  • Strength
  • Ability to Build Muscle
  • More

Many men approaching middle age aren't even aware that their testosterone levels are dropping. Other males simply don't care and begrudgingly accept the new, uninteresting life that looms in front of them. Today, however, more and more men are ditching that mindset and reclaiming their lives with testosterone replacement therapy in Harrison, ME.

How Does TRT Work?

One of the most common questions we get at Med Matrix is, "What does TRT do?" Testosterone replacement therapy does what its name implies: It's a science-backed therapy that replaces low testosterone levels in men. The main objective of going on a TRT regimen is to improve your life and wellbeing by balancing your hormones. Also referred to as androgen replacement therapy, TRT helps many men deal with and overcome the debilitating side effects of low T.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy works by giving your body the testosterone it needs to function properly. Without healthy levels of testosterone, the male body can't maintain the natural processes necessary for overall health. In fact, men with low testosterone levels are more prone to serious health problems such as type-2 diabetes and even heart disease.

Until their testosterone levels are restored to normal, most men suffer until they find a solution. That's where TRT comes into play. With balanced hormones, the body can finally begin to heal, causing most symptoms of low testosterone to diminish greatly.

Here are the 5 Biggest Benefits of Going on TRT in Harrison, ME

Up to this point, we've talked a bunch about how beneficial TRT can be for men who have declining testosterone levels. But you may be wondering how TRT specifically benefits you and your body. Here are just a few of the biggest benefits of starting testosterone replacement therapy at Med Matrix.

TRT Clinic Harrison, ME

Higher Levels of Energy

The effects of TRT are not immediate and may not be noticeable at first. However, typically, psychological improvements can be felt within three to four weeks of starting treatment. Most individuals experience reduced fatigue, improved sleep, and an overall feeling of being more rested after about a month of treatment. By this time, you may also notice increased motivation to engage in physical activities, which are crucial for your wellbeing and quality of life.


Better Sex Life

If there's one thing that men hate most about having low testosterone, it's that their ability to perform in the bedroom becomes compromised. In fact, diminished sexual function, including low sex drive and erectile dysfunction, is one of the most common reasons why men seek treatment for low T. That's for good reason: Recent research shows a strong correlation between libido and testosterone levels.

Fortunately, testosterone replacement therapy in Harrison, ME, can enhance healthy sexual relations with your spouse or partner. Increased testosterone levels in men often lead to increased sexual activity. At Med Matrix, many of our patients report having a higher sex drive within the first three to four weeks of treatment. Many men also reported having stronger and longer-lasting erections.


More Mental Clarity and Focus

Testosterone has a significant impact on cognitive performance, including memory, concentration, and reasoning. When testosterone levels are low, mental function can suffer. When you begin TRT, the heavy cloud that has been hanging over you can start to dissipate. Mental focus, cognition, and memory show signs of improvement after the first few weeks of treatment. Feelings of depression and sudden mood swings start to subside within three to six weeks. By 18 to 30 weeks, you will notice a significant improvement in self-confidence and mental clarity, as well as an inner strength that is more prepared to face life's challenges.


Normalized Blood Sugar Levels

When experiencing hypogonadism, your insulin sensitivity may be compromised, leading to fluctuations in blood sugar levels and an elevated risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Testosterone replacement therapy boosts your insulin sensitivity, enabling your body to efficiently absorb glucose from your blood after a meal.

Typically, significant improvements in blood glucose levels and insulin sensitivity are observed after about three months, with the full effect manifesting after a year. Also, remember this: TRT has been shown to increase your motivation. The tiniest spark of motivation can propel you to become more physically active, further boosting your insulin sensitivity.


Healthy Red Blood Cell Count

Your body produces red blood cells through a process called erythropoiesis. When you suffer from hypogonadism (low T), red blood cell production can slow, leading to anemia. Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) can help improve red blood cell count, reduce fatigue, and stabilize blood pressure. Results may vary based on age and dosage, but improvements are typically noticeable after three months, with peak benefits at nine to 12 months.

We should note that some TRT patients have higher hematocrit levels than normal (>51%) and need to donate blood regularly as a result. That's why it's important to work with seasoned male health doctors - like those at Med Matrix - when you're considering TRT in Harrison, ME.


Build Bigger Muscles

Who doesn't want a great physique? Diet, rest, and exercise are crucial for success. However, when your testosterone levels drop below the normal range, your strength decreases, your body mass decreases, and your once-unstoppable endurance diminishes. Testosterone plays a key role in improving these areas.

Do You Have These Symptoms of Low Testosterone?

Are you used to blasting through your day with productivity and positivity? Have you noticed that you're losing muscle mass and the desire to be with your spouse? Has your partner been complaining that you're too irritable to be around? If you're usually not a curmudgeon, your body is probably trying to tell you something. It could be time to speak with a doctor about testosterone replacement therapy in Harrison, ME. Keep a running tally of whichever of the following symptoms you notice happening in your life.

 TRT Men's Clinic Harrison, ME

Two words that send shivers down the spines of every man are "erectile dysfunction." Unfortunately, when your T levels are lower than they should be, this is one of the most common symptoms that men must endure. Being unable to get it up isn't just embarrassing - it can be downright depressing and lead to issues with mental health. It's a hard topic to discuss, but a personalized TRT plan from Med Matrix can help.

Decreased energy was once considered a normal part of aging. Nowadays, we know better. Most doctors understand that low energy levels can be linked to low testosterone levels. If you're finding it difficult to engage in activities you used to enjoy, like playing with your kids or going for a workout, it could be a sign of low testosterone. Sure, it's normal to feel tired from time to time. But persistent fatigue and a serious lack of drive might mean something more.

A study from 2011 revealed that men who lose a week's worth of sleep may experience a 15% reduction in testosterone levels. Additional research found that almost 15% of workers get five hours of sleep or less per night. These findings suggest that sleep loss can negatively impact testosterone levels and wellbeing. The big takeaway here is that men who have trouble sleeping often suffer from lower testosterone. If you find yourself exhausted at the end of the day but struggle to sleep through the night, you may be one of those men.

Many people over the age of 50 experience memory loss and lack of concentration. It's a normal part of aging. However, those signs can also mean you have low T. A study from 2006 discovered that males with low testosterone levels performed poorly on cognitive skill tests. This suggests that low testosterone can contribute to reduced cognitive ability. If you can't stay focused on tasks or can't recall words like you used to, have your testosterone levels checked. You could be a prime candidate for TRT.

If you're like millions of other men, coming to grips with hair loss isn't something you want to do. Closely related to hormone imbalances and testosterone decline, hair loss is stressful and embarrassing. It's often related to a derivative of testosterone called DHT. Too much DHT in your body can cause hair follicles to stop production, causing them 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 altogether. While you can't alter your genes, you can address low testosterone in your body. Whether you're suffering from thinning hair or hair loss across your entire head, TRT and solutions like peptides and stem cells can stop your head from shedding hair.

Gynecomastia, also known as "man boobs," is the enlargement of male breast tissue, often caused by hormonal imbalances and an increase in estrogen. Elevated estrogen levels during andropause, also known as male menopause, usually occur due to a lack of testosterone. If you're a man between 40 and 55 and feel embarrassed about having large breasts, ask your doctor about TRT. When combined with a healthy diet and exercise, it could be the solution to your problem without needing surgery.

Live Life on Your Own Terms with Help from Med Matrix

The claim: Harrison Butker said commencement speech comments were ‘taken out of context’

A May 16 Facebook post (direct link, archive link) shows a photo of Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker above a quote attributed to him regarding his controversial commencement speech.

“Everyone is taking what I said out of context. All I said is that we should go back to a better time, like the 50’s & 60’s. When men were men, and women had more babies than thoughts. When the only ‘Me too’ movement was one woman saying she was ready for her 4th child, and another woman agreeing,” the quote reads.

The caption reads in part, "But why would women spend 4 years busting their butts on a degree to wipe noses and cook chicken nuggets?? How dare he think that all women prioritize having children over a career?"

The post was shared more than 80 times in one day, and the same image appeared in other posts on Threads and Facebook.

Our rating: False

Butker did not make this comment in regards to his speech. The claim originated on a satirical Facebook page.

Butker’s original comments about women, LGBTQ+ community highly criticized

Butker’s May 11 commencement speech at Benedictine College drew ire when he told female graduates they had been told “diabolical lies“ about the careers they wish to pursue.

“Some of you may go on to lead successful careers in the world, but I would venture to guess that the majority of you are most excited about your marriage and the children you will bring into this world,” Butker said.

He further said his wife’s life started when she “began living her vocation as a wife and mother.” Butker also criticized the LGBTQ+ community and government policies regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.

The NFL distanced itself from his comments, with senior vice president and chief diversity and inclusion officer Jonathan Beane stating that Butker’s views “are not those of the NFL as an organization.”

Butker did not, however, follow up on his speech with the quote in the Facebook post. There is no evidence from credible news reports nor his own social media page he made this statement. USA TODAY reached out to his agency for comment but did not receive a response.

A watermark in the image on Butker’s shoulder is the handle of The Sports Memery, which states in its "Intro" section that it posts content that is satire and parody. The Sports Memery posted the quote to its page on May 15, and it was shared more than 13,000 times.

Fact check: No link between National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, rise in autism rates

It's an example of what could be called "stolen satire," where posts or stories written as satire and presented that way originally are captured via screenshot and reposted in a way that makes them appear to be legitimate news. As a result, readers of the second-generation post are misled, as was the case here.

USA TODAY reached out to the users who shared the post for comment but did not immediately receive a response.

‘Reminds Me Of Charles Woodson’: Rodney Harrison Drops Lofty Comp On Steelers’ Star Minkah Fitzpatrick

When it comes to the best safeties in the NFL, few find themselves in the same discussion as Pittsburgh Steelers’ star Minkah Fitzpatrick.Though he had a relatively down season in 2023 due to a number of injuries, including a pulled hamstring, a knee injury, and a broken hand, which sapped some of his production and availability, when Fitzpatrick was healthy and on ...

When it comes to the best safeties in the NFL, few find themselves in the same discussion as Pittsburgh Steelers’ star Minkah Fitzpatrick.

Though he had a relatively down season in 2023 due to a number of injuries, including a pulled hamstring, a knee injury, and a broken hand, which sapped some of his production and availability, when Fitzpatrick was healthy and on the field, he was a true game-changer for the Steelers.

That’s been the case since he was traded from the Miami Dolphins in 2019, giving the Steelers that star safety they had been missing on the defense since the heydays of Troy Polamalu. Since putting on the Black and Gold, Fitzpatrick has put himself on a Hall of Fame pace, putting together three First-Team All-Pro seasons and four trips to the Pro Bowl.

He also was the co-leader in interceptions in the NFL in 2022 and earned the Bart Starr Award.

Even despite the tough season in 2023, Fitzpatrick is still highly regarded at the position. In fact, former NFL safety and current NBC Sports analyst Rodney Harrison believes Fitzpatrick is still the best safety in the NFL today, even comparing him favorably to Hall of Famers Charles Woodson and Rod Woodson.

“He can play safety, he can play corner. This is a guy that literally reminds me of Charles Woodson. And I told Charles, I said, ‘I believe that you and Rod Woodson are the two guys that could play every position in the secondary and be an All-Pro.’ And that’s Minkah Fitzpatrick,” Harrison said to NBC Sports’ Devin McCourty, according to video via NFL on NBC on YouTube. “He could be a cornerback left and right because he studies, he prepares, he works. He’s a great team guy. He is just a fantastic player.

“He’s like you [McCourty]. He’s got corner skills, safety instincts, toughness, and the ability to do it all. He’s just a fantastic player.”

That is lofty praise from Harrison, comparing him to two of arguably the best defensive backs to ever play the game at multiple positions in the Woodsons.

Prior to coming to the Steelers via trade, Fitzpatrick wasn’t happy with the way he was being used by then-Dolphins head coach Brian Flores. He was playing all over the place and wasn’t able to settle into a true role. That changed in Pittsburgh as he slotted in at free safety and thrived.

When he’s been at his best in Pittsburgh, he’s been that centerfield safety, thriving in the robber role, jumping routes, and making plays on the ball. In recent years, he’s had to wear more hats in a secondary undergoing a bunch of changes, but he’s still played at an exceptionally high level.

Hopefully, with better health and some added talent around him in the secondary this offseason, Fitzpatrick can get back to the elite level the Steelers and their fans are used to. If he does, Pittsburgh could really find its defense playing at an elite level and putting the Black and Gold in contention once again.

Superprod Group and Vivement Lundi! are proud to announce the production of Harrison and Me, a 52 x 11′ 2D-animated comedy for five- to eight-year olds which raises awareness for young viewers about the need to take action for our environment every day. Loosely based on the books The Zero Waste Family by Bénédicte Moret and Jérémie Pichon, published by Thierry Souccar, the series is directed by Jean Duval and Abdelraouf Zaidi.

“We are delighted to announce the launch of Harrison and Me,” says Camille Serceau, Producer at Superprod Animation. “This series represents a new chapter in our mission to create series that entertain but also inspire young minds. We firmly believe that this new production will not only captivate children, but also encourage them to reflect on their relationship with nature and their impact on the environment.”

Aurélie Angebault, Producer at Vivement Lundi!, adds, “Harrison and Me is the result of a fruitful collaboration between our two studios, and we look forward to sharing this unique series. This series, which combines humor and ecological awareness, is a perfect example of our commitment to quality entertainment for children.”

Created for television by Angebault and Serceau, with the participation of Nathalie Dargent and Matthieu Chevalier, this new series recounts the adventures of Harrison, an organic and vegetal being, who comes into the lives of Charlie (6 1⁄2), her brother Zach (11) and their friends Bintou (11) and Léon (6). By welcoming and caring for Harrison, the gang of friends take initiative, discover how to act for the planet in their daily lives as children, and more broadly how to reconnect with nature.

Currently in production, the series is being produced in Charente and Brittany, and is supported by the Nouvelle-Aquitaine Region, the Charente Department, the Brittany Region and Rennes Métropole. France Télévisions, the series’ development partner, will broadcast the series, as will RTS and TV5. Superights is responsible for international sales of the series worldwide.

“Having a good friend is great. When it’s Harrison, it’s even better!” comments Jean-Baptiste Lamotte, Head of Children’s Programming and Animation, France Télévisions. “Follow the journey of a family as original as they are sensitive to the environmental cause, and do as Zach, Charlie, do: reconnect with nature! Harrison and Me questions our relationship with nature, helps us to adopt the right eco-citizen gestures!”

Kayla Harrison’s biggest challenge may be weight class rather than opposition: Nobody in UFC, Bellator or PFL ‘scares me’

Kayla Harrison always knew her options in the women’s lightweight division were somewhat limited.That’s why she’s long considered a more permanent move down to 145 pounds, where there are far more established opponents.

Kayla Harrison always knew her options in the women’s lightweight division were somewhat limited.

That’s why she’s long considered a more permanent move down to 145 pounds, where there are far more established opponents. She was scheduled to compete at featherweight at the upcoming PFL Championship card on Nov. 24 until former Bellator champion Julia Budd was replaced by UFC veteran Aspen Ladd on short notice.

As a result, Harrison will now fight at a catchweight of 150 pounds. But truth be told, the opponent never mattered much anyway.

“I don’t want to say I expected this, but it doesn’t matter,” Harrison told MMA Fighting about her change of opponents. “I focus on what I can control. I’m just looking for a fight, I don’t care who it is.

“Aspen Ladd has never been a champion, Julia Budd’s been a champion, but Aspen Ladd has been in the UFC, [and] Julia Budd has not. Aspen Ladd is younger and probably more up and coming. Julia Budd probably on her way out, but it doesn’t matter, because I beat them both. The one common denominator is ‘Kayla smash.’”

Harrison’s return comes almost exactly one year after the first loss of her career, a decision setback against reigning PFL champion Larissa Pacheco. It seemed the rematch would happen, considering Harrison already holds two previous wins over Pacheco, but the Brazilian got back into the season-long PFL tournament at 145 pounds after the promotion effectively eliminated the women’s lightweight division.

Cutting down to featherweight requires Harrison to make a lot of changes to her diet and training schedule, and she knows doing that four times in a year to join another PFL season would be nearly impossible. That said, she seems ready to call featherweight home in the foreseeable future.

Could that also serve as a precursor to an eventual move down to 135 pounds?

“I mean 135 will challenge me in ways like I’m going to have to lose a piece of me to be able to fight at 135 pounds,” Harrison said. “I think just structurally, I carry a lot of muscle. I’m already kind of lean, so I’m going to have to lose muscle. I’m going to have to change my entire lifestyle. I mean I have already done that to fight at 145.

“It’s crazy what happens when you take care of your body and eat properly and sleep and recover. I was a knucklehead when I was younger. But I have faith whatever is meant to be, will be.”

Harrison’s toughest challenge may be her weight class, because the two-time Olympic gold medalist in judo welcomes fights against anybody. That perhaps means a rematch with Pacheco in the PFL, or even a long awaited showdown against Bellator champion Cris Cyborg.

It also potentially includes a future in the UFC, but that would force Harrison to get down to bantamweight; the promotion has effectively shuttered the last remaining remnants of a largely dormant 145-pound division.

“Listen, have you ever known me to shy away from a fight or say no to fighting someone? No,” Harrison said. “It doesn’t matter what promotion you are. I don’t care. I believe in myself. I don’t care. Everyone’s like ‘well you lost.’ Yeah, guess what? Sometimes giants fall. Sometimes, s*** happens. Sometimes you lose. Sometimes you stumble but it’s not what happens then. It’s what happens after you stumble. I’m not afraid of hard work. I’m not afraid of climbing back up. I’m not afraid of pushing myself and saying no, that’s not it, I’m not done. I’m still here. I’ve got something to prove. I’m not afraid of it. In fact, I relish it.

“Nobody in the UFC, nobody in Bellator and nobody in PFL scares me and I’m willing to put that on the line. I bet on myself.”

The most terrifying obstacle may be weight-cutting, but Harrison attacks that possible challenge with the same kind of ferocity as she does her fights.

“I don’t know the limits of my body in that term there yet,” she said. “I’ve started doing some research and taking some tests and doing some scans and seeing [what’s possible] but I don’t know and I don’t care.

“Because right now all I have to do is make 150 [pounds] and fight Aspen Ladd on Nov. 24. But I never say never. We’ll see what happens.”
