Listen as Dr. Berga shares how hormones are impacted by age.
Yes. The impact of hormone is age-dependent and we don’t really understand all the ways in which age determines the impact of a hormone, but what we’re studying to figure out is that older tissues don’t respond in a beneficial manner whereas younger tissues probably do.
So, in essence, what you can say is that the younger a tissue, the more likely it is that the hormone’s impact will be what you want.
