Dr. Terlinsky Attends the 25th Annual American Academy of Antiaging and Restorative Medicine Meeting

Dr. Terlinsky Attends the 25th Annual American Academy of Antiaging and Restorative Medicine Meeting

I just came back from Las Vegas where I attended the annual meeting of the A4M which stands for the American Academy of Antiaging and Restorative Medicine.  Prior to the conference, I attended two workshops. One workshop was Reversing Physical Aging with Hormone Therapies and the other was Peptide Therapy. The first workshop reviewed the characteristics of aging of the various organs and systems of the body and how they related to various hormone deficiencies which develop with aging. The main focus was on testosterone, growth hormone, IGF-I, Thymosin–alpha–1 and Insulin. 

The peptide workshop was all about using growth hormone releasing hormones (GHRH), growth hormone secretagogues (GHRP), and various fragments of growth hormone and IGF-I (insulin-like growth factor). These peptides which are small proteins consisting of amino acids usually less than 50, can do much to restore muscle mass, reduce body fat, improved endurance, improved brain function, improved immune system, improved bone, and counter many of the chronic problems associated with aging. Peptides have become very specialized and some are now being used to facilitate healing, increased libido the sexual function and med women, stimulate stem cells and restorative joint function. I have already been prescribing peptide therapy using Sermorelin, however, there are now new peptides such as Ipamorelin which provide additional benefits.

While the concept of antiaging sometimes seems to be wishful thinking, is basically the ideas embodied in the NIH sponsored Precision Medicine Initiative, which you can learn more about here. Precision Medicine is a powerful tool integrating complex health data into actionable guidance and personalized intervention to improve individual health. The process involves detecting potential health problems both present and in the future, predicting health conditions based on lifestyle and genetics, reversing the impact of genetic, lifestyle and metabolic problems and helping patients understand her own health destiny.

New services and features which will be available in my practice will include telomere testing, metabolomics, improved methods to recommend supplements, advanced hormone therapy and expanded Peptide therapy.
