millions of baby boomers are.. seeking out age management clinics to feel younger.. doctors say some of what they do is controversial.. but they say science is on their side. " "you'll have old school physicians that don't read the new evidence and they rely on what they learned in medical school 20 years ago. so if you don't keep up with evidence... this is a dynamic field." " when we come back.. we take you inside age management clinics... what they do and why even some doctors are taking their own medicine. things are getting brighter downtown... literally! see the streetlights that are the first of their kind... and how they are helping the environment. get all the news and weather alerts you need to know about with our fox5 app.

4:12 pm
fueled business for clinics promising a better way to age. age management clinics are expensive.. and some of their reatments are controversial. but that isn't stopping patients, even some doctors themselves, from trying to recapture their younger selves. once a year jeff ocheltree (( oh- kell-tree)) undergoes a four hour "checkup" that looks nothing like your doctor's office. because once the basics like posture and his range of motion are checked out... jeff undergoes what very few of us would in a usual exam... an ultra sound machine measures the amount of cholesterol in his corotid arteries his body's bones are scanned and measured for density.. "so you are within normal ranges when compared to other ethinicities .. men in any age category.. however we do want to see you improve over time" and then comes the real work... at least for jeff.. "let me get this on top of your head" a v-o-2 test where jeff pedals his heart rate to nearly 200 beats per minute... all to measure how well his body utilizes oxygen.
4:13 pm
pushing" the point of all of this is to head off any disease that could prematurely end jeff's life. "our corporate motto is to live well longer, not necessarily live longer. however if you do the former, you also end up doing the latter. doctor jeffrey lake may be a walking billboard for cenegenics. the sixty two year old is active, buffed.. and uses one of the more controversial treatments to feel younger.. testosterone. "there's a lot of bad hormone replacement therapy done out there and there's a lot of phobia of that too." and for good reason... the f-d-a just last month issued a new warning for those who take testosterone and the risk of abuse by adults. the risks include "heart attack, heart failure, stroke, and depression..." but warnings like these have done little to reduce demand for testosterone . "you take testosterone right? i absolutely do. tell me what it does? for me, it keeps me at a
4:14 pm
i found that man, i'm sleeping better, my mood is better" doctor john pierce runs his own age management clinic. he points to plenty of medical literature supporting testosterone use and he says the problem is with back alley clinics that over- prescribe it. it's difficult for them to bring charges because the medical board says they're not in the business of telling people how to practice medicine. it's kind of scary. it's almost like they havent' hurt anybody yet so we'll just let them keep doing this." as a gerentologist dr. lisa rosenberg treats older patients. she is skeptical that age management clinics can do anything more for you than you could do for yourself. "everybody wants to live longer and live better. so what they're counting on is an individual's hope that the supplement will be that magic for them. first and best thing is to grow up with adequete nutrition in a low-stress environment, get

and have good genes" "if there was ever a case of leading from behind, it's the american physician" age management is booming. cenegenics has gone from one location to twenty dr. pierce's patient load has doubled the business of aging fueled by boomers who witnessed the decline in their parents and peers.. and are deterimined to get better with age. but with old age comes certain diseases that are unescapable... alzheimer's perhaps the most cruel and sinister. but there may be a huge breakthrough in the works. the first drug of its kind being tested at cleveland clinic lou ruvo center for brain health downtown and it's showing a lot of promise. tonight on fox5 news at ten, we will talk to patients and we'll hear why one researcher says 2016 could be a milestone year in the quest to find an effective alzheimer's treatment. now fox5 weather 24/7 the high clouds moving across southern nevada this afternoon are
