Anti-Aging Medicine: Advances in Hormone Replacement Course Description

This anti-aging procedural training course utilizes a case study approach designed to help physicians and practitioners successfully and knowledgeably treat their age management patients. This intense 2 day mini-residency teaches everything you should know about hormones, the various types of hormones, both good and bad, problematic, and life-saving, synthetic (non-human) vs. pharmaceutical bioidentical (human identical) vs. compounded (human identical but not FDA tested or approved). Youll get the real nuts and bolts needed to prescribe hormone replacement therapy (HRT), which ones to use and which ones to avoid, how much, when, and why. Youll learn about monitoring and adjusting HRT through literature presentations, case studies, and open discussions. Emphasis is placed on understanding the difference between normal and optimal levels of hormones based on our medical studies.

Day two involves extensive review of 100 cases that involve laboratory evaluation, prescribing, adjusting, troubleshooting, and discussing various hormone therapies for different scenarios for both men and women. Your practice of hormone replacement therapy will be based on peer-reviewed medical research and a wealth of clinical experience. This is the most comprehensive course taught on anti-aging medicine training, designed to give you practical information and skills that you can use on a daily basis. The curriculum is an evidence-based program on preventive medicine designed to enhance your diagnostic and prescribing skills when optimizing hormones for both men and women.

Although most clinicians are fully aware of the need to replace hormones in cases of sub-normal hormone levels, most have not been trained to optimize hormone levels if the baseline hormone level is normal. Many participants frequently inquire why a patient is treated with various hormones when the baseline lab test indicates normal. Just as confusing is the realization that the medical literature supports that normal is simply not optimal. A multitude of studies support optimization of all hormones regardless of the baseline levels, both for maintenance of quality of life and for future health benefits. In addition, the medical literature demonstrates that optimization of hormones results in relief of symptoms, improvement in well-being, and a decrease in morbidity and mortality by attaining levels in the upper range of normal. It is imperative that practitioners understand both the need and benefit for optimization, what levels are considered to be optimal, as well as have command of the literature that supports it. One important aspect of this course is the extensive review of the medical literature that provides the credence and support as to why we optimize with certain hormones as well as avoid the use of non-isomolecular hormones. Remember that normal is definitely not optimal when it comes to hormone replacement and this applies to both men and women.
