What is Longevity Management Medicine?
Longevity management medicine is an emerging field of medicine devoted to maintaining or enhancing the quality of life as we age. It does not prevent aging or necessarily lengthen our life, but rather qualifies and alters the way we age to enhance the quality of life as we age.
Emphasizing Disease Prevention over Disease Treatment
Longevity management medicine places emphasis on disease prevention versus disease treatment. Its medical protocols involve extensive initial laboratory baseline testing, hormone balancing, laboratory test monitoring, patient education, proper diet, nutritional supplementation and appropriate exercise.
Quality of care outcome measures include: improved laboratory test profiles, enhanced strength, increased endurance, and a greater feeling of wellness as the patient works with the physician to achieve personalized life enhancing goals.
