Many men and women are living with sub-optimal hormone levels and do not even realize it. You may be one of them! Why? Because when we go to see our family physician, health extender or internist for a check-up, they almost never order the appropriate hormone panels (blood tests), because most mainstream medical providers are not aware of the devastating effects these hormone deficiencies can have on your health and quality of life.
While your doctor may check your thyroid hormone levels along with the usual health and wellness blood tests such as cholesterol, liver and kidney enzymes, blood count, blood sugar level, etc., in many cases the doctor fails to check important hormones like testosterone, estrogen, DHEA, IGF-1, progesterone, and others.
Canyon Health Anti-Aging regularly encounters men and women who have been under-or misdiagnosed by their own health care providers. It is an unfortunate reality that many people experience a decline in their general health and wellness because of a healthcare system based on treatment after-the-fact, and does not emphasize preventive medicine.
Many of our patients tell us sad stories of having trudged through their forties, fifties and longer with issues caused by low hormones that were ineffectively treated for years with ED medications, anti-depressants, ADD/ADHD medications, synthetic HRT (hormone replacement therapy). As can be expected, most experienced little to no improvement in their health conditions.
In many cases, these “wrong” treatments allowed their underlying problems to worsen and also caused side effects. You may be one of these people. Are you dissatisfied with your current health care provider’s care? Are you left wondering why you continue to feel “under the weather” after innumerable doctor’s appointments and treatment with different medications that haven’t helped your situation?
At Canyon Health Anti-Aging we believe that our treatment plans, combined with the concept of preventive medicine in the form of hormone replacement therapy for age-related hormone deficiencies, enable our patients to live a higher quality of life where they can feel better, look young, and live longer.
