To follow up Part 1, received Thursday’s lab results yesterday. Downloaded the workbook at https://michaellustgarten.com/2019/09/09/quantifying-biological-age/ and filled it in. Went to http://aging.ai/, selected 3.0, and entered values.
My starting point’s calculated values were:
A biological age snapshot from a year ago‘s video included optimal ranges:
Values in these optimal ranges were:
- Albumin: 46;
- Creatinine: 1.07;
- high-sensitivity C-reactive protein: 0.24;
- Red cell distribution width: 11.8; and
- White blood cell count: 4.6.
I have some work to do on the other four. Good health while aging seldom happens on its own.
Reading more about Phenotypic age and its biological relationships. It definitely doesn’t mean I can do things I did 9.5 years ago like play golf and Frisbee football on the weekends.
I’d probably use DNAm PhenoAge to compare with other epigenetic clocks. Not sure how to use Aging.ai 3.0 calculations.
Sometime over the past year, Labcorp changed their adult alkaline phosphatase reference range from 39-117 to 48-121. Don’t know whether alkaline phosphatase’s optimal range will change with Labcorp’s new range, since < 48 was based on all-cause-mortality data.
