Telomeres are the caps on the end of our chromosomes that protect them, a bit like the plastic tip on a shoelace. Our DNA is located on our chromosomes which means that telomeres protect our genetic material.
Telomere length is a good predictor of longevity. For example, in 2007, a study showed that in elderly twins, the twin with shorter telomeres is three times more likely to die first.
Having your telomeres tested will give you a measure of your biological age.
Once you know your biological age, you can address issues and make improvements in your life to help you achieve optimum health and have the energy you need for your life. Addressing your health is the key to age management and the results will show in your appearance as well as your energy levels.
Included is the telomere testing which is an easy blood draw, and an in-depth consultation with Dr Roked to assess your results, lifestyle, general health and what treatment or supplements or lifestyle changes are needed to optimise your health and help you to age well, as well as what other testing may be needed.
