PhysioAge Systems measures vital body systems or biomarkers to identify how well you are aging.
While you may be 50 years old, your actual physiological (biological) age may be 60. Tracking physiological age over time provides a clear profile of your individual aging process and can help your physician determine which treatments to prescribe and when.
With appropriate therapy, most of our patients actually see a decrease in their physiological age over time.
- CardioAge: Arterial Stiffness/Pulse Wave Analysis: Evaluates cardiovascular risk by measuring blood pressure at the heart to determine artery suppleness
- CutoAge – Skin Elasticity Testing: Assesses the elasticity, firmness, and resistance of the skin
- PulmoAge – Lung Function Testing: Measures lung function, which is linked to many chronic diseases, not just lung disease
- NeuroAge – Brain Function Testing: Assesses brain aging through a series of computerized tests focused on age-sensitive aspects of cognitive function (available in 50 languages). Assesses memory, processing speed, reaction time, cognitive flexibility and concentration
- Receive a comprehensive, individualized health profile
- Find out how fast you are aging biologically versus chronologically
- Identify your precursors to disease
- Recognize your weakest body system
- Experience quality time with your examining physician in a relaxed, focused and unrushed environment
- Take home a personalized action plan that you can implement immediately
PhysioAge assesses your biological age relative to your chronological age for various biomarkers
What are Telomeres?
Telomere length is an insight into our biological age as opposed to our chronological age. Numerous scientific studies have proven a strong connection between short telomeres and premature cellular aging. There is scientific evidence that we can slow, stop and potentially even reverse the shortening of telomeres. Elizabeth Blackburn’s discovery of telomerase, the enzyme that replenishes telomeres, won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2009.
