Cenegenics Reveals Ways Obama Can Cut Healthcare Costs, Saving Nation Billions
Date:5/15/2009

Global age management medicine leader and forerunner in the field, Cenegenics® Medical Institute offers its best-practice innovations in support of the president's recent appeal for prevention practices that lower healthcare costs, increase work productivity, improve health and avoid complications of chronic disease.

Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) May 15, 2009 -- Cenegenics® Medical Institute, global age management medicine leader, offers the nation solid-science solutions for our current healthcare crisis, brought to the forefront by President Obama's roundtable discussions held at the White House on Tuesday, May 12. Supporting the president's prevention focus, Cenegenics believes its best-practice innovations of using evidence-based protocols in a proactive age management medicine approach can translate to billions in healthcare savings while optimizing the health of Americans and improving their overall quality of life.

According to a White House statement, Obama hopes to invest in prevention initiatives to "improve the productivity of our workforce, delay or avoid many of the complications of chronic diseases and slow medical cost growth."

That mindset is right in sync with Cenegenics, who says Corporate America is on a collision course of poor lifestyle choices, a diminished endocrine system and 21st century stress.

"If we're going to take control of healthcare costs, patients have to take responsibility because the majority of type 2 diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea and certain other diseases are self-inflicted," said Dr. Paul Thompson, a Cenegenics partner and co-chief executive officer of Cenegenics Dallas-Fort Worth.

"For example, the frequency of diabetes is running 10% to 12% and rising. Diabetics have an increased incidence of stroke, heart disease, renal failure, nonhealing ulcers, amputations, peripheral neuropathy and other related issues requiring hospitalization. All that costs money. Cutting diabetes down to 6% via a preventive medical approach like Cenegenics uses would create astronomical healthcare savings and be in line with President Obama's initiative."

Thompson says it begins with the basics: Americans following the right diet and exercise and, if clinically indicated, optimizing diminished hormone levels since we lose 1% to 3% from age 30 onward which can cause our health to slowly and steadily deteriorate. The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists says type 2 diabetics have significantly lower testosterone levels and should be screened.

Per Thompson, another reducing-cost-via-prevention example is bone density, a topic often ignored in men's health. Osteoporotic conditions in men and women lead to 1.5 million fractures annually, a multibillion-dollar business in orthopedic surgery and an expected $60 billion in healthcare costs by 2030. Whereas a Cenegenics-type proactive approach increases muscle mass, strength and bone density, which reduces fracture risk, decreases mortality rates and could cut a billion dollars a year off the healthcare tab.

The Cenegenics programs are centered on the synergy of low-glycemic nutrition, exercise, nutraceuticals and hormone optimization (when clinically indicated) for healthy aging. The science behind their medical specialty helps them identify and meet criteria placing patients in the lowest possible risk category for disease. As a result, Cenegenics patients reportedly prevent or delay the onset of age-related disease.

"The day of being able to retire at 65 is just about gone, " Thompson said. "I work with my patients to help them stay in the workforce with sharpened cognitive ability and youthful energy to work a 40-plus workweek. Fitting into President Obama's plan, the Cenegenics program extends productivity level well into the 70s and returns quality of life, so Americans can avoid the age-related health issues in their 80s that typically consume healthcare dollars and hamper well-being."
