What is your Biological Ageing type?


Aging – it’s a journey we all embark on from the moment we’re born. But have you ever wondered why people age differently? Why do some seem to defy the years, while others feel the weight of time more heavily?"

Let’s dive into the fascinating world of aging – understanding its types, impacts, and how we can use modern science to peek into our own biological clocks.

First, let's unravel the types of aging. There’s chronological aging, marked by the number of birthdays we’ve celebrated.

Then there’s biological aging – this is about how our cells and organs are faring, often quite a different story from the candles on our birthday cake."

We also experience psychological and social aging, influenced by our mental well-being and social interactions."

What impacts aging?

It’s a complex mix of genetics, environment, lifestyle choices, and even social factors. From the DNA we inherit to the diets we follow, the air we breathe, and the stress we manage – they all play a role. Staying healthy isn’t just about how old you get, but how you get old. 

How can we peek into our biological age? 

A simple way to begin is through blood biomarkers! These are substances in our blood that give us a glimpse of our internal aging process, let’s look at a few key markers: 

1. C-Reactive Protein (CRP): Linked to inflammation, essential for understanding immune aging.

2. Blood Glucose Levels and Hemoglobin A1c: Crucial for metabolic agers. Levels on the higher end of the normal range may indicate insulin resistence, while elevated levels lead to diabetes.

3. Cholesterol Profile: Important for everyone, but especially for hepatic agers with liver health in focus. You want your LDL and Triglyeceride levels to be on the lower end of the spectrum, while your HDL to be on the higher end of the spectrum.

4. Vitamin D: Key not only for bone health but for your immune health. A significant marker for immune agers.

5. Homocysteine: Another inflamation marker linked to heart health, important for those with potential cardiovascular aging.

6. Albumin and Globulin Ratio: Part of a kidney and liver profile, these are Indicative of kidney and liver function, crucial for nephrotic and hepatic agers.

Understanding aging is a key to unlocking a healthier, more vibrant journey through life. While we can’t stop the clock, we can definitely influence its pace. Aging research emphasizes the power of lifestyle choices. Whether you're a metabolic, immune, nephrotic, or hepatic ager, tailoring your lifestyle to your ageotype can slow down the aging process and improve your healthspan. Remember, when it comes to blood markers, biohackers dont aim for being just within the 'normal' range; we optimize our approach and lifestyle to maintain optimal levels for each age group.
