Telomere Testing

YOU KNOW YOUR AGE, BUT DO YOU REALLY KNOW HOW FAST YOU'RE AGING?

An individual’s chronological and cellular age may be different, and SpectraCell’s Telomere Test can measure and quantify this difference. Age adjusted telomere length is the best method to date to assess biological age using structural analysis of chromosomal change in the telomere.

Telomere Testing

Just as repeat evaluation of other diagnostic tests tend to be more relevant than any one test result, repeat evaluation of telomere length is an indicator of how rapidly one ages relative to a normal population. Increases in telomere loss may point to an increase in immunoproliferation, the inability to handle oxidative stresses, or progression of chronic disease and metabolic abnormalities.

Some chose to couple the telomere testing with genetic testing which looks at aging factors.

Sample Telomere Test Report

Telomeres are sections of genetic material at the end of each chromosome whose primary function is to prevent chromosomal “fraying” when a cell replicates. As a cell ages, its telomeres become shorter. Eventually, the telomeres become too short to allow cell replication, the cell stops dividing and will ultimately die—a normal biological process. Executive Medicine of Texas’ Telomere Test can determine the length of a patient’s telomeres in relation to the patient’s age.
