LIFE LENGTH TEST:
CHRONOLOGICAL AGE VS BIOLOGICAL AGE
Telomere Analysis Technology (TAT): Determine your Biological Age
Life Length Test
The Life Length Test is a blood test determines the percentage of critically short telomeres in your blood sample. It is the percentage of short telomeres and not mean (average) telomere length that is most indicative of aging in individuals and which contributes to the potential for development of age related diseases and from which Life Length is able to calculate an individual’s estimated vs chronological age. This test is a tool for you and your physician to gain insight into your rate of aging and be able to make recommendations regarding the factors that influence it including changes in life style habits and potentially appropriate nutritional and nutraceutical supplements, always under your doctor’s guidance.
This test is examined by AML Diagnostics
What is a Telomere?
Inside the nucleus of a cell, our genes are arranged along twisted, double-stranded molecules of DNA called chromosomes. At the ends of the chromosomes are stretches of DNA called telomeres, which protect our genetic data, make it possible for cells to divide, and hold some secrets to how we age and get cancer.
Telomeres have been compared with the plastic tips on shoelaces, because they keep chromosome ends from fraying and sticking to each other, which would destroy or scramble an organism’s genetic information.
Yet, each time a cell divides, the telomeres get shorter. When they get too short, the cell can no longer divide; it becomes inactive or “senescent” or it dies. This shortening process is associated with aging, cancer, and a higher risk of death. So telomeres also have been compared with a bomb fuse.
