Testosterone Replacement Therapy in Scarborough, 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 Scarborough, 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 Scarborough, 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 Scarborough, 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 Scarborough, 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.

Higher-Levels-Energy

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 Scarborough, 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

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

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

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 Scarborough, ME.

Build-Bigger-Muscles

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 Scarborough, ME. Keep a running tally of whichever of the following symptoms you notice happening in your life.

 TRT Men's Clinic Scarborough, 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

Scannell properties unveils comprehensive master plan for Scarborough warehouse and distribution hub

Brianna Soukup/Staff Photographe ...

Scannell Properties, LLC’s presented its master plan for a warehouse and distribution space on the former Beech Ridge Motor Speedway site at 70 Holmes Road to the Scarborough Planning Board Dec.11. Scannell Properties, LLC is requesting master plan review of a 30,560-square-foot warehouse with a separate office space and a three-bay maintenance shop. The project also includes a vehicle circulation yard, fueling area and an axle scale.

Following the closure of Beech Ridge Motor Speedway, the property owner proposed a development plan in 2021 for the over 5-acre site. Due to zoning regulations, any development requires a three-step planned development process, including site inventory and analysis, a master plan, and site plan or subdivision approval. The Planning Board reviewed the project through two site inventory and analysis sessions in November 2021 and February 2022. After the 2022 review, the board approved the project to advance to the master plan phase. At the recent sketch plan review on Oct. 30, the board appeared comfortable using the 2021/2022 site inventory and analysis. Approval of the master plan would lead to a formal site plan review with the Planning Board.

Eric Sanderson, assistant town planner, underscored the master plan’s role in the redevelopment of the over five-acre site, citing the zoning ordinance’s requirement for a thorough plan development process. “Master plan proposal for the redevelopment of the former Beech Ridge motor speedway requires a site inventory and analysis as well as a master plan,” Sanderson said.

“The proposed master plan submitted for our proposed truck terminal remains largely unchanged from our initial sketch plan submission,” said Justin Olashuk, the representative for Scannell Properties. He highlighted an addition to the master plan, the identification of potential development areas, emphasizing zones beyond existing wetlands and vernal pools.

Olashuk said that the primary concerns of the Planning Board revolve around water supply, fire suppression, traffic mitigation, and breaking up the large parking area. He proposed measures such as existing vegetated buffers, sound and visual buffers, and a memorial at the intersection of Holmes Road and Two Rod Road.

Public comments reflected residents’ apprehensions regarding potential impacts on water supply. Warren Hamilton, a resident on Two Rod Road, voiced concerns about water scarcity, “I’m scared to death we’re going to run out of water. I used to be able to dig a hole outside my house and get water, not anymore. I have a dug well, and it’s low.” Others described worries about traffic and the need for infrastructure improvements.

Denise Hamilton, during her public comment on Zoom, raised concerns about potential odors, “Diesel fuel smells, hundreds of tractor trailers with diesel smell is going to cause an odor. Probably as much if not more than the marijuana smell next door to us. You need to start talking to the taxpayers and the neighbors. And, what’s in our best interest, not the best interest of the developers. This is affecting our water. This is affecting our safety.”

The board, cognizant of these concerns, expressed a need for further research on key issues before the submission of the application for a site review. Chair Rachel Hendrickson said, “In the hope of moving through this please, when you come to us, don’t send us an application until a lot of these issues have been researched.”

SCARBOROUGH, Maine —

A buzz of activity could be seen outside the new Costco Wholesale store just off Payne Road in Scarborough on Tuesday. Delivery trucks could be seen coming and going. The parking lot was full of cars and the store isn't even open yet.

More than 8,000 people have signed up for a membership since the news that the store would be coming to Maine. Inside the lobby Tuesday, there was a packed house with long lines of future customers ready to pay $60 for a yearly membership. Costco has what some call a cult-like following.

"I think it's the quality of the product you get there. I belonged when I was out in Seattle which is where Costco started as a company. And really there's nothing you can't find there that you need," said Craig Russell, of Scarborough, who was at the store to purchase a membership.

The anticipation for the new Costco has been building for months. The 152,000-square-foot building is located near the entrance of The Downs development. The company said it has hired more than 200 employees.

"I just think they have more inventory and it's pretty exciting for people to go look at and the price, the prices. Everybody wants to save money," said Jane LeBlanc, of South Portland.

Costco does not seem to be worried about competition in the area. Costco's basic membership plan starts at $60 a year. Sam's Club, located just across the street from the new Costco, offers a yearly membership of $50. The nearest BJ's Wholesale, located on Warren Ave. in Portland, is offering a promotional membership of $25 per year. All three wholesale giants have gas stations, with discounted prices for members. All three were offering gas for a little over $3 a gallon on Tuesday.

Customers we spoke with were offering all kinds of reasons why this new store is such a big deal.

"They just have good, everything. They have good sheets, clothes, meat and everything. It's great and they have such a nice variety, and it's big, and it's clean, and it's exciting for people my age who like to go shopping," said Connie Muller, of Scarborough.

Costco's grand opening is set for Friday, Nov. 17, at 8 a.m.

Developers at the mixed-use The Downs property in Scarborough broke ground today on a new, $130 million project that, when finished, will become Scarborough’s new downtown.

It will be the first downtown area to be created in an established community in Maine’s history.

The project, expected to be finished by 2025, is the latest in a series of developments on the 600-acre property, which has been abuzz with construction work for the past five years. The property, located in the center of Scarborough, is the former home of Scarborough Downs, the racetrack which held its last harness racing event in 2020.

Rocco “Rocky” Risbara, Scarborough native and co-owner of Risbara Bros. Construction, noted Wednesday that so far, developers have created 560 residential units ranging from market-rate to senior affordable housing.

Town officials clashed with developers in the spring of 2022, when the town amended local ordinances to cap development to only allow building permits for only 44 new residential units a year.

The town eventually gave developers a temporary exemption to allow residential construction to continue.

Risbara also noted the creation of over 1 million square feet of commercial space. Notable companies moving into The Downs include Westbrook-based veterinary products developer IDEXX Laboratories, which has opened a 100,000 square-foot location on the property, retail giant Costco, which is planning to build its first location in the state in The Downs, and Allagash Brewing Co., which plans to build a tasting room on the property to complement its existing brewery in Portland.

The downtown project, Risbara said, is the next step in the area’s ongoing work.

“We knew we had the right location for this project, because where we’re standing today is not only the center of the Downs project, but it’s the geographic center of Scarborough,” he said.

Gov. Janet Mills told the crowd Wednesday that she had visited the former Scarborough Downs racetrack on several occasions in the past, but marveled Wednesday at the development work underway and yet to come.

“People use the word, ‘transformative’ a great deal in talks these days, but I can’t think of anything more transformative than what I’ve seen today,” she said.

Plans for the downtown project include a proper town green surrounded by sidewalks and mixed-use buildings, each with shops and other commercial spaces on the ground level, and housing on two floors above. The units will be of various price points, developers said in a release.

Kristina Egan, executive director of the Greater Portland Council of Governments, noted that GPCOG has set a regional goal of seeing 75% of new homes in the area located near jobs, schools and local services.

In addition, GPCOG wants to see most new homes be available to people of lower and middle income.

“This project knocks those goals out of the park,” she said.

The town of Scarborough has been wanting a downtown area since the concept was first written into its comprehensive plan in 2006.

Travis Kennedy is chair of the downtown committee, a group of local citizens, business owners and town officials that worked with Risbara and the Downs developers on what the downtown area would look like. On Wednesday, Kennedy recalled the first Zoom call with the developers.

“I had an expectation that we were there to rubber-stamp something,” he said.

To his surprise, Kennedy recalled, the developers said just the opposite – that they were there to implement what the committee wanted. He said a year later, everyone had a vision, and the developers were prepared to make it happen.

“We all had the same vision in our minds of what a center of Scarborough would look like and feel like,” he said.

Mills, in remarks after the ceremony, mentioned Kennedy and the committee’s collaborative experience with the developers.

“What’s amazing, that you heard today, is that instead of the developers going to the town and saying, ‘this is what we’re going to do, or want to do,’ is them going to the town and saying, ‘What would you like us to do?’” she said. “That’s a great turn of events, and I think that’s creative, imaginative, and a successful partnership that makes things like this happen.”
