Achieving Justin’s Decade-Long Mission for Better Health

"I wish I'd found Dr. Page 20 years ago!"

Justin’s Results

  • Lost 60 pounds
  • Stabilized cholesterol, glucose and liver enzyme labs
  • Balanced hormones
  • Regained an amazing quality of life

Justin, now 47, started to see health issues such as joint pain in his early 20s, but it wasn’t until his lab results became concerning that he committed to a mission of resolving them. First, he tried traditional medicine and a healthier lifestyle on his own.

“Unfortunately, my liver enzyme numbers kept elevating to the point I was diagnosed with fatter liver disease,” Justin explained. “It’s a pretty serious thing. It can lead to cirrhosis. I was on track to shorten my lifespan. I was told to lose weight but wasn’t given a real map or plan of how to get to better health.”

By all accounts, Justin should have been a pretty healthy and fit person. He ate mostly organic, counted calories, avoided processed foods and had a regular workout routine. But each year that passed brought him worsening symptoms and the reality that his body was deteriorating at an alarming rate. On top of high cholesterol and glucose levels, he developed bone density problems leading to early-stage osteoporosis.

“I reached a point where I felt I had tried everything,” Justin said.

Finally, based on great reviews, he made an appointment with Dr. Page at Wisconsin Institute of Functional Medicine (WIFM) in a “last ditch effort” to move the needle after a decade of no results. This decision proved to be life changing.

Justin’s Journey

Justin’s first consultation with Dr. Page introduced him to WIFM’s unique fact-based, personalized approach to care.

“Dr. Page looked at my labs, told me my testosterone levels were low and that, with treatment, I would see improvements in as early as a month,” Justin said. “From then on, I started to lose weight with a combination of lifestyle changes.”

Dr. Page prescribed testosterone to balance Justin’s hormones and a peptide for weight loss to help control his appetite. In addition to the treatment plan, she recommended he eat a high-protein diet, consuming 80 to 100 grams of protein daily.

Within six months of following the protocol, Justin lost about 50 pounds. Every concerning lab number was back in a healthy range.

“This was amazing after 10 long years of poor health,” he said. “I feel better than I have in decades.”

Today, the mornings of feeling like he “got run over by a car” are a thing of the past. Justin enjoys better sleep, more energy, great focus and higher productivity, and is no longer plagued by thoughts of joint pain preventing him from enjoying his life. Nearing age 50, he refuses to believe aches and worsening labs are a normal part of aging.

“It wasn’t inevitable that I get osteoporosis,” Justin declared. “I didn’t have to trend toward 300 pounds. Now, I’m in control of my health. Best of all, I’m looking forward to the future.”

Justin’s Advice for Others

“If you’re looking for a personalized approach to your health that’s simple and works, schedule an appointment with WIFM. Their protocol helped me reach goals that seemed unattainable. I wish I’d found Dr. Page 20 years ago!”
