Comprehensive Age Management Medicine
Are you losing your edge? Feeling less energetic? Gaining weight around the middle despite your best efforts? Are your libido and sexual performance declining? Do you wish you could look and feel vibrant, active and youthful again?
In my years of practicing medicine, these are some of the most common complaints brought to me by my male patients. I realized that along with the symptoms they were experiencing, they were also becoming at increased risk for chronic degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, insulin resistance and diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis and stroke. It was a lose-lose situation.
As you age, the hormones you want low typically begin to rise (e.g. insulin, cortisol) and the ones you want high begin to decline (e.g. testosterone, human growth hormone, DHEA, thyroid). Testosterone alone declines at a rate of 1-3% per year beginning in your twenties! As a result, men frequently experience the same symptoms as women who are going through menopause. The difference is that in women, menopause typically occurs over a much shorter period of time, so the symptoms are more sudden. The male transition is more gradual and can expand over several decades. Yet as men age they begin to experience changes in attitudes and moods, mild depression, fatigue, lower sex drive, reduced erections, weight gain in the middle, loss of energy, and reduction in physical agility.
It's commonly a result of hormonal changes. And there is a solution.
Comprehensive Age Management Medicine is a medical specialty that involves evaluating you for symptoms and signs of degenerative aging and decline and slowing down that process through hormonal optimization, nutrition, and exercise. It's not just about living longer, it’s about living a better quality of life while you live.
This Program Includes:
Your Comprehensive Age Management/Hormonal Optimization Evaluation Includes:
- Comprehensive Medical, Nutritional, Exercise and Lifestyle Questionnaire (may be completed at home)
- Comprehensive lab testing to accurately measure your current hormone levels and current health status
- Complete Physical Exam
Based upon the results of your evaluation, a Personalized Age Management Plan including your hormone replacement prescription, nutritional and supplement recommendations, and a customized exercise plan (based upon your baseline testing, health risks, preferences and goals) will be outlined.
Month-to-month management of your plan including hormonal dosing management, lab follow-up (6-8 weeks initially and then quarterly or less depending on complexity), and access to Dr. Carragher and The Body Well Team to assist you. Typically, follow-up management can be done from home and follow-up labs can be arranged to be done at your home or office, or at a local lab if you don’t live locally.
