What is exactly Age Management Medicine?
The field of Age Management Medicine is fairly new to the medical world. Most people just assume it’s “Anti-Aging” Medicine, which has a sort of built-in connotation of vanity or the quest to live forever. Age Management Medicine is a scientifically-based approach to aging, focused on preservation of optimum human function and quality of life, making every effort to slow the process of degeneration of the body that comes with aging. It’s about helping you to look, feel, and function as good as possible, for as long as possible. It’s about enjoying a very high quality of life as you age, continuing to do what you love without becoming increasingly reliant on the care of others – which most of us fear. Age management is a holistic approach to your health and wellbeing by looking at three main reasons for aging such as genetics, chronic inflammation and hormonal balance. The basic tenets of Age Management Medicine are patient evaluation through extensive medical history, lifestyle assessment and laboratory evaluation to establish
personalized treatment plans.
What are the most common benefits of Age Management Medicine?
The key difference between Age Management Medicine and most other medical specialties is that its approach is proactive. In most fields of traditional medicine, the medical community’s approach is: wait until you get sick, then prescribe treatment. Age Management’s interventions are intended to preserve the highest quality of life for you for the longest period of time. Age Management Medicine goals are to increase energy and decrease fatigue; maintain a healthy metabolism; lower body fat and improve strength; better sleep; increase sex drive and performance; maintain healthy brain function (improve memory, concentration, mood, motivation); keep your skin healthy and diminish signs of skin aging; decrease the risk of age-related diseases such as cardiovascular disease, dementia, diabetes, osteoporosis, stroke and other serious ailments; increase overall feeling of well-being – you
just feel better!
How does Age Management Medicine work?
We age for three main reasons: our genetic, chronic inflammation and decreased hormones levels. Age Management Medicine is based on a customized approach that aim to reduce chronic inflammation and restore an optimal hormones level through bio-identical hormones replacement therapy (BHRT).
