Biological Age Testing: How old am I ?

Biological Age vs. Chronological Age


There are many ways of determining biological age as compared to determining chronological age. The image above graphically illustrates the difference.  A number of metrics have been used to determine the biological age. This relates to the health of the liver, kidneys, immune status, genetic markers such as length of telomeres on chromosomes.  Some of these tests are readily available and at a low cost.  Most can be obtained with a  blood sample for about eighty dollars.
