With New Year resolutions just around the corner, HSC Health – the clinical practice of the University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth – has launched the Metabolic & Longevity Center.
This new specialty is dedicated to the treatment of metabolic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, and more. Additionally, patients who do not have metabolic diseases but are interested in prolonging the active, healthy years of their lives or optimizing athletic performance are invited to partner with HSC Health providers to focus on health longevity.
“The Metabolic and Longevity clinical experts recognize that your health is greater than a lab result or medication,” Executive Vice President of Health Systems Jessica Maack Rangel said. “Your goals, your lifestyle, your dreams are all part of your wellness. Our expert clinicians empower individuals to take back control of their health. We find that over time, many people no longer require insulin to treat their type-2 diabetes, many lose weight, and they are able to lower their blood pressure back into an acceptable range. The team walks the wellness journey with each person to achieve the quality of life they’ve always wanted.”
The goal of this specialty clinic is to help patients achieve their health goals, give individuals more years of activity and good health across their lifespan, and deprescribe medication as much as possible. Patients benefit from a care team, including a team of doctors and a clinical pharmacist who collaborate with your medical history and specific health targets in mind.
For accountability, support, and practical assistance reaching your goals in 2023, call 817-735-7800 to schedule an appointment with the Metabolic & Longevity Center.
