Becoming a Patient Optimal Aging Assessment

Your initial assessment may be the most comprehensive evaluation of your health that you've ever received. In addition to thorough lab work and computerized neurocognitive testing, you’ll receive a carotid artery ultrasound to measure arterial thickness and identify plaque, and a DEXA scan to measure bone density, lean body mass, and fat mass with visceral fat quantification. This assessment provides the framework for precision-based treatment recommendations.

Optimal Aging Assessment includes:

  • Comprehensive hormone and advanced cardiovascular blood work with written interpretation of results. This Includes a complete blood count, comprehensive metabolic panel, uric acid, lipid panel, apolipoprotein B (apoB), LDL particle number and size, Lp(a), insulin, hemoglobin A1C, hsCRP, homocysteine, and hormone assessment. Depending on your health history, additional testing may include low concentration cardiac troponin, NT proBNP, inflammation markers (IL-6, TNF-α), ferritin, iron, leptin, and adiponectin.
  • Nutrient testing: Vitamin D, B12, CoQ10, and omega-3 fatty acids. Testing for additional nutrient deficiencies can be requested.
  • Genetic testing: Apo E genotype and MTHFR mutations are tested for all patients. Additional testing for cardiovascular genetic variants can be requested from Vibrant Wellness via CardiaX and testing for genes related to cognitive disorders, mental health, and metabolism can be requested via IntellxxDNA.
  • Carotid Artery Ultrasound to evaluate blood flow in the carotid arteries, the major vessels supplying blood to the brain. Identification of soft or calcified plaque and measurement of the thickness of the artery wall (intima media thickness or “IMT”) helps with identification of atherosclerosis and possible decreased blood flow to the brain which can precede cognitive decline by decades.
  • SECA Body Composition Testing: indirectly measures fat and muscle percentages and basal metabolic rate (calories burned at rest).
  • DEXA Scan: Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) determines bone mineral density to screen for bone loss and provide information for assessing fracture risk. Hologic DEXA scan also measures visceral fat, the type of fat that increases risk for several diseases of aging. .
  • 2-3 hour visit with Dr. Retzler to review all results, advanced cardiovascular assessment, Cleery® Testing (if performed in advance), bioidentical hormone replacement options, testosterone therapy options, treatment recommendations and a personalized treatment plan.

Please note: Dr. Retzler makes no profit and receives no financial incentive from any laboratory, recommended testing, prescription medications, or prescribed hormones.
