The non-science witch hunt against hormone replacement therapies for deficiency syndromes must end.
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is an essential and extensively documented protocol for clinical intervention in the disorders of aging. HRT maintains an unblemished safety and efficacy profile that has been documented by over 20 years of clinical application. The A4M does not endorse or condone the use of any illicit substances for sports cheating. However, the A4M does support the continued availability of such substances to adult patients with objectively assessed hormone deficiencies.
A perfect storm of misguided media combined with biased parties whose livelihoods hinge on disparaging the anti-aging medical movement has grossly compromised access to HRT, placing the lives of hundreds of thousands of patients worldwide in potential jeopardy.
In this Position Paper, the A4M outlines how media sensationalization, combined with federal and state actions aiming to criminalize the practice of innovative medicine, impacts the anti-aging physician and their patients, putting healthcare freedoms in dire risk.
