Frequently Asked Questions


Frequently Asked Questions Shutterstock 1779681110When should I consider hormone optimization?

In general, your body’s natural hormones begin to decline after your mid-20s, and hormone imbalance symptoms are frequently present by your mid-30s. Men and women often start replacing hormones between the ages of 35 and 40. It’s best not to wait.

Is the program safe?

Yes. We only use evidence-based medicine. Many studies show not only the safety, but also the long-term health benefits of hormone treatment.

My doctor has concerns or says it’s not safe.

We hear this all the time. It’s not their fault. We will work with your doctor to explain exactly what we are doing and why. Most doctors simply have not had the time to research our specialty. 25 Again takes a leadership role in educating our peers.

How is 25 Again different than other medical providers?

The 25 Again program is an exclusive medical protocol ONLY offered by our medical providers. The protocol is comprehensive and monitors all major age-related hormones, vitamins, and minerals. If you’re at 25 Again, we are confident you are getting all you need.

My doctor says that my levels are fine for my age.

True, you likely have levels that are normal for your age. But that’s not necessarily good news to you. You will see age-related issues as you get older. “Optimal” levels fight disease AND make you feel better.

My doctor just tested my blood, can I use those tests?

Yes, we can use any current labs that you have. We don’t want to retest something we don’t have to. However, your doctor likely is not testing all essential hormone levels. We know what to check, most primary care doctors don’t.

Frequently Asked Questions Shutterstock 1080220691Will this program help me lose weight?

No, hormones will not make you lose weight. Optimal levels of hormones will increase muscle tone, decrease belly fat, increase energy and mood. Our members report regaining the desire to workout and eat better after they enroll. 25 Again Members have access to nutritional counseling and exclusive diets with the help of certain medicines.

Does hormone treatment cause cancer?

No. 25 Again only uses bioidentical hormones, not synthetic. There is a lot of research regarding the dangers of synthetic hormones. Bioidentical, however, is an exact replica of hormones naturally produced by your body, matched molecule by molecule.

Are treatments covered under insurance?

No. We do not take insurance, but we can accept FSA and HSA cards. 25 Again will give you what you need and not just what an insurance company is willing to reimburse. We also offer financing through Care Credit.

What can I expect in terms of cost?

The cost for your first TWO initial appointments will be $199. The visits include an initial lab draw*, 40+ biomarker analysis, and a one-hour visit with a 25 Again Medical Provider to review your lab results and receive your personalized health action plan.

*Lab analysis of blood is not covered in the initial consultation fee. Third-party LabCorp fees can be paid at our private pay rate or may be covered by your insurance.

I’m ready! What’s my next step?

We need to schedule you for labs and email you a couple of electronic forms. Complete the forms prior to your first visit. On your first visit you will complete your labs and then schedule your baseline review in about a week. At this baseline appointment your lab results will be reviewed with you, and you will be given a personalized health action plan.

How long does it take to feel the effects of therapy?

Age and physical conditions make this timeline unique to each individual. Most new members notice treatment effects within a few weeks. Many, particularly women, need a month or so.

Frequently Asked Questions PepHow can I be assured this really works?

We have a written money back guarantee. Please ask your provider to explain.
