Age Management Medicine looks at the changes that result from ageing and the steps needed to either reverse or slow these changes. We try to prevent disease instead of treating diseases after they occur. Early intervention through lifestyle changes, dietary supplementation and hormonal replacement may delay or prevent the need for medication or surgery and also improve function and delay symptoms of ageing such as tiredness, sleep disorders, weight gain, memory loss and reduced exercise tolerance.
A word from the doctor
With an increased understanding of the changes that happen with ageing, we are now equipped with knowledge to help you age better. Ageing gracefully is no longer accepting the changes that come with age such as reduced vitality, function and disease. Ageing gracefully is about understanding why we feel old, what diseases we are at risk for developing and taking active steps to improve our quality of life. So take the first step towards a healthier and happier life.
‘Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity’
