Most people don’t look forward to getting older. While age can bring wisdom and rich experience, it can also bring health concerns, weariness, and a loss of youthful vitality. What wouldn’t we give to feel like we did back when we were in our twenties? Through age management therapy, this outcome is attainable. Age management refers to a set of proactive and preventative interventions that can help minimize some of the bodily effects of time and age. We are proud to provide a range of age management services, including hormone replacement therapy (HRT), at LongevityMed in Raleigh, NC. We invite you to learn more about these services.
Why Age Management?
Many bodily functions are governed by the hormones. For example, hormones can determine our metabolism, our energy level, even our libido. And yet, as our bodies age, hormone production tends to decrease. In fact, most men and women start experiencing significant hormone decreases when they turn 21! This can lead to a wide range of effects, including lowered energy, decreased stamina, inability to burn fat, and more.
Such effects are often attributed to the aging process, but it’s more accurate to say they stem from hormonal imbalance; and as such, they can be corrected through bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (HRT), which counteracts the body’s drop-off in natural hormone production.
HRT involves augmenting your body’s natural hormone production with supplements. The hormone supplements we provide at LongevityMed in Raleigh, NC are all bioidentical, which means they perfectly mirror the genetic structure of your body’s naturally occurring hormones. They represent a safe and holistic form of age management.
At LongevityMed, we recommend HRT on a proactive and preventative basis. Hormone interventions can help you avoid some of the most unpleasant aspects of the aging process, and with the right treatment, you can maintain a feeling of youthful vigor even into your twilight years.
HRT at LongevityMed
One important consideration of HRT and age management is that no two patients come to us experiencing the same hormone deficiencies. For best results, a one-size-fits-all mentality simply won’t do. As such, we like to get to know our patients’ specific needs, something that requires us to run some lab work and also take complete medical histories.
Once we have a handle on your hormone levels, we can recommend the best HRT regimen. There are a couple of different ways in which the hormones can be provided. We can provide pellets here in our office, or offer injections that patients can administer themselves, in the privacy of their homes. We’ll keep track of your progress over several weeks and make adjustments as needed, ensuring you get the desired results.
