What is age management medicine?

What is age management medicine?


Age management medicine is not a new concept. An old Chinese proverb states:

“The inferior physician treats the disease once it occurs. The mediocre physician prevents the disease from coming back. The superior physician prevents the disease from ever occurring.”

Traditional thought has programmed us to expect aging and debilitating symptoms as an inevitable gloom, slowly penetrating our lives from middle age onward. That is not necessarily true. Research and time-tested therapies prove differently. Studies have redefined “healthy” as “living with the energy and vitality of someone years younger”. Achieving that level of health adds life to your years.

Age management medicine shifts the emphasis from disease-driven medicine to a preventive health medical practice, centered on evidence-based protocols that work synergistically to give you proactive, preventive healthcare.

In 1997, Cenegenics pioneered age management medicine and is both highly regarded in the medical community and the indisputable leader in this field. Cenegenics relies on the science of age management medicine to help identify and meet criteria, which places you in the lowest possible risk category for disease—particularly heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, metabolic syndrome and Alzheimer’s Disease—and thereby extending your health span.

By incorporating hormone optimization (when clinically indicated) harmoniously with appropriate exercise, nutrition, and supplementation in customized programs, Cenegenics can help target your specific health goals and get you on track to a healthier you.

Elite Health Evaluation – Gold Standard Diagnostics


Cenegenics strives to provide superior healthcare by incorporating hormone optimization (when clinically indicated) harmoniously with appropriate exercise, nutrition, and supplementation in customized programs. Cenegenics relies on the science of age management medicine to help identify and meet criteria, which places you in the lowest possible risk category for disease — particularly heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, metabolic syndrome and Alzheimer’s disease — and thereby extending your health span. In order to build your customized program, we start with your initial evaluation.

Comprehensive Lab Panel

The comprehensive lab panel is a state of the art chemistry panel and complete blood count that is the most extensive in the industry. Includes readings on 88 markers, many of which are not included in standard annual physicals. Our comprehensive lab panel is taken at your home or office, at your convenience. Comprehensive labs, such as this, are necessary for the detecting critical changes in your body before they manifest into chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes or worse. By monitoring markers within hormones, decisive steps to enhance your quality of life to decrease body fat, increase muscle tone, increase physical & sexual vitality, improve mental sharpness, improve sleep quality and decrease the risk of age-related diseases.

DEXA & Body Composition Scan

DEXA scan measuring body fat and bone density included in cost of Cenegenics, DEXA giving accurate scan of body composition included in Cenegenics cost

The DEXA Scan is a test that measures total body fat and includes the exact breakdown of bone density, fat tissue, and muscle mass in the body. DEXA is significant more accurate than BMI and hydrostatic weighing. This body composition scan gives you the information necessary to lose stubborn body fat, build more lean muscle, identify health risks, as well as track your physiological response to your nutrition plan and fitness plan.

VO2 Max Cardiovascular Testing

VO2 Max Test measuring cardiovascular endurance included in Cenegenics Cost, exercise physiologist testing patients cardio endurance is a part of the cost of Cenegenics

VO2 Max Testing is a measurement of the maximum amount of oxygen that an individual can utilize during intense exercise to determine aerobic fitness level and heart rate training zones. This measurement is generally considered the best indicator of cardiovascular health and aerobic endurance, and can help shape your exercise plan.

Carotid Intima-Media Scan (CIMT)

Testing patient for risk of heart attack and stroke using CIMT is in the cost of Cenegenics, patient receiving carotid ultrasound included in Cenegenics cost

Carotid Intima-Media Scan (CIMT) is a specialized ultrasound of the carotid arteries and is used as a preventive measure against heart attack and stroke. The carotid artery transports blood from your heart to your brain. As thickening occurs in the arteries, plaque can silently build up over years, and often the first symptom a person may experience is heart attack. Physicians are able to provide nutrition and lifestyle recommendations, or suggestions for further action depending upon the state of your carotid arteries.

Neuro-Cognitive Assessment

The neuro-cognitive assessment is a comprehensive evaluation of a patient’s cognitive status by specific neurologic domains, i.e. memory, attention, problem solving, language, visuospatial, processing speed motor, and emotion.

Nutrition & Exercise

During the initial evaluation, you will spend time discussing your current exercise & dietary habits in order to determine personal goals which can be achieved with the right food choices and exercise programs, allowing for optimum physical health.

Physician Consultation

During your consultation your Age Management Medicine Certified Cenegenics physician will carefully evaluate and discuss the results of your extensive lab analysis, diagnostics, medical history, nutrition and exercise consultation and lifestyle. Various health and lifestyle topics will be discussed to help design the program that is right for you. Your physician will also discuss key fundamentals including: aging facts, the role of hormones in your health, andropause or menopause, nutraceutical supplementation, low glycemic nutrition, resistance training, cardiovascular exercise, and risk factors related to cardiovascular disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, sleep disorders, weight loss, bone density (osteoporosis and osteopenia), depression, libido/sexual drive, certain cancers and cognitive function.

Specialized Testing


Depending upon your specialized interests, the following tests are also available at Cenegenics.

Heart Disease & Stroke Prevention Program

The Heart Disease & Stroke Prevention Program helps you break free of the limitations of conventional testing, and gives you a more significant, specific and accurate assessment of your cardiac health.

This program is critical for your future health if you have a family history of heart disease or stroke. It helps you avoid future events if you have had cardiovascular disease or had bypass surgery, heart attack or stroke. It is an innovative program designed by four experts in the field – a cardiovascular surgeon and three cardiologists.

Telomere Testing

telomere length helps determine cells aging, testing to determine health of cells, telomere testing is not included in Cenegenics cost

Telomere testing helps measure how well your cells are aging and gives you an opportunity to learn more about your age-related risk factors.

Telomeres provide a tip at the end of each chromosome to protect the cell. Each time the cell divides in order to replicate, the telomere of each chromosome shortens. When a cell’s telomere becomes too short – from replicating, telomere length genetics, lifestyle habits, and/or environmental factors, the cell dies. Therefore, determining telomere length is considered an exceptional biomarker to determine one’s biological vs. chronological age.

Why Get Tested?

  • Telomere Length Matters: Telomere length indicates an overall health status.
  • Inspire Change: Receive a better understanding of the lifestyle habits that impact aging.
  • Better Treatment: Allows physicians to offer a more personalized treatment plan.
  • Set a Baseline: Results are used to set a baseline and can track progress through retesting.
  • Know Where You Stand: Receive a comparison of your results to the results of others of the same demographic.

Micronutrient Testing

Micronutrient testing is a groundbreaking, patented technology at Cenegenics that provides information to help optimize your nutrients. This unique blood test proves a powerful tool in controlling your aging process – measuring specific vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other essential micronutrients in your white blood cells to determine cellular function.

Real fact: 50% of people taking multivitamins are actually nutritionally deficient. Contributing factors include lifestyle habits (prescription drugs, smoking, alcohol consumption, and even intense exercise), age factors (i.e. lack of enzymes in the gastrointestinal tract), inability to absorb nutrients, chronic illness, and metabolic disposition. This can lead to disease over time, from cardiovascular disease, stroke, cancer, and diabetes to osteoporosis, arthritis, immune disorders and more.

Disease Risk Profile

The Disease Risk Profile provides a precise assessment of 30 individual fatty acids and 5 of the important ratios (such as the ones influencing chronic inflammatory states), as well as percent distributions of fat families, including the Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. The report of your results includes recommendations to assist in rebalancing your fatty acids for optimal health.

Maintaining a proper balance between the various families of dietary fats may be one of the most important preventative measures a person can take to reduce the likelihood of developing one of the chronic diseases of modern civilization.

Fatty acids were once thought to be nothing more than a stored form of caloric energy. Current research indicates that fatty acids are some of the most essential nutrients in the human diet, critical for cell membrane structure and function and for local “hormonal” signaling. The number of diseases whose clinical course can be improved by fatty acid therapy is huge, including inflammatory disorders, cardiovascular disease, hormonal disorders, autoimmune disorders, forms of arthritis, mental and behavioral disorders, and many cases of senile neurological degeneration.

Food Allergy Testing

Cenegenics offers an advanced food allergy test that identifies possible existing allergies from 93 different foods. These results will help you and your nutrition and exercise counselor better customize a nutrition plan, usually minimizing or even eliminating these foods altogether. This can bring about major improvements in many symptoms and disorders triggered by food, which have now been identified through testing.

Even the perfect nutrition plan can do harm if you are not certain of the foods that can make you ill. Food allergies can cause immune system reactions ranging from runny nose to life-threatening anaphylaxis.

Some of the symptoms that may dissipate with a shift in diet, which eliminates foods that may be causing your chief complaints include:

  • acne, eczema, rashes
  • anxiety
  • autism spectrum disorders
  • candidiasis
  • chronic fatigue
  • chronic infections
  • depression
  • fibromyalgia
  • irritable bowel syndrome
  • leaky gut syndrome
  • migraines
  • movement disorders
  • multiple sclerosis
  • OCD
  • rheumatoid arthritis
  • seizures

Genomic Testing

Genomic Testing available at Cenegenics, genome analysis can reveal risk of disease, Genetic testing is in addition to cost of Cenegenics program

Cenegenics has partnered with New Amsterdam Genomics (NAG), the world leader in DNA analysis, to provide this state-of-the-art DNA analysis using whole exome sequencing that allows us to contextualize the results and determine the next steps to take towards optimal health.

NAG testing analyzes all 22,000 genes to help identify specific medical issues as well as understand any broader implications related to them. NAG differs from similar programs like 23andMe because NAG uses advanced technology including exome sequencing, whereas 23andMe uses genotyping and only looks at common variants and mutations. NAG is more extensive and thus capable of identifying your risk for disease as well as traits that you do not exhibit but may affect your children in the future.

Your Genome Can Reveal:

  • Pharmacogenomics (optimized medication selection and dosing)
  • Risks for thousands of diseases (e.g. cancer, diabetes, heart disease, etc.)
  • Diet, exercise, and lifestyle recommendations
  • Traits in your DNA you don’t exhibit, but may affect your children
  • Unique features you weren’t aware of
  • Your ancestry

Patient Comment on “How Much Does Cenegenics Cost”


“Don’t confuse Cenegenics with the dozens of hormone-alternative clinics springing up in strip malls all over the country. I’m sorry to tell you that those anti-aging clinics are to Cenegenics what McDonald’s is to the Four Seasons. Cenegenics has a rock-solid track record-20 years of experience with over 35,000 patients. Doctors come from all over the country to get certified in age-management medicine by the non-profit Cenegenics Education and Research Foundation. In a very real sense, Cenegenics wrote the proverbial book on how to do this stuff the right and responsible way. As a doctor friend of mine once joked, don’t shop for bargains in parachutes, scuba diving equipment, or hormone replacement programs.”
