The Rise of Chronic Disease in Young Adults

by Functional Medicine of Idaho

Chronic diseases are long-term conditions that can arise from a combination of environmental, genetic, and lifestyle factors. These conditions encompass cardiovascular disease, cancer, depression, autoimmune disorders, and obesity and are responsible for a staggering 74 PERCENT of all global deaths annually, affecting around 41 million people. While traditionally associated with older adults, there is a concerning rise in the prevalence of chronic diseases among young adults. 

Among young adults, the most common forms of chronic diseases are obesity (25 percent), depression (21 percent), and high blood pressure (almost 11 percent). The increase in chronic illness among this age group is not solely due to one factor but rather a combination of internal and external influences.

Given the multitude of factors involved in the development of chronic diseases, it is increasingly vital for medical specialists to provide personalized therapies that cater to the unique needs of each individual. Thankfully, practitioners specializing in integrative and functional therapies have been meeting these unique needs!

PEPTIDE THERAPY, which involves natural peptides, has shown its potential in enhancing various bodily processes. Peptides, shorter versions of proteins composed of amino acids, play essential roles as building blocks in the body. Supplementing with bioactive peptides has been found to promote fat loss, reduced blood pressure, support optimized immune function, and improve the body’s response to inflammation and oxidative stress.

HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY (HRT) has long been used to address health conditions contributing to chronic diseases, including cardiovascular issues, stress, bone loss, and unexpected weight gain. Especially when utilizing bioidentical hormones that mimic an individual’s unique hormone levels, HRT can significantly improve overall health from the root level. When combined with healthy lifestyle management and professional-grade nutraceuticals, HRT holds the potential to reduce the risks of chronic diseases.
