Longevity and Internal Medicine

In a constantly changing world, the extensive increase in life expectancy redefines the vast majority of healthcare priorities. It is no longer just about living longer, but about guaranteeing a long life and in the best conditions. In this unique context, internal medicine emerges as a key medical discipline to achieve this objective.

Longevity and quality of life: a comprehensive approach

The search for healthy longevity implies not only survival, but the possibility of continuing to enjoy and enrich our lives during the geriatric stage. Internal medicine, focused on diagnosing, treating and preventing diseases in adults, becomes a fundamental resource to improve the quality of life of elderly patients.

Comprehensive and personalized approach to the geriatric patient: the key to success

Internal medicine addresses the patient as a whole, considering their medical history, current condition, and specific needs. This personalized approach allows for the identification and effective treatment of risk factors, ensuring complete, rigorous and effective care.

Polypharmacy and therapeutic optimization in elderly patients: a challenge to overcome

Polypharmacy, common in older adults with multiple conditions, can lead to numerous drug interactions and problematic side effects. Internal medicine is dedicated to optimizing therapy, balancing the benefits of treatments with the risks involved.
