Help: Drastic results on DNA biological age test
Hi I’m a long time reader and first time poster. Advice needed please.
I just received my results from myDNAGE which shows my biological age as 69 when my chrono age is 47. I’m a fit, slim, non-smoker and a high performing executive. However I have suffered from immune issues all my life from allergies pollen+food, high ANA count and possible mast cell disorder. All my blood work is usually fine. The most recent one showed mild eGfr which my dr put down to dehydration and asked me to retest in a few months (I’m going tomorrow)
I have been taking weekly Rapamycin as a patient of Dr Green since January this year and I have done intermittent D&Q over the past 2 years.
I’m freaking out a bit here and can only assume that the test was faulty or I have something very very wrong with me.
Any advice or speculation on what could be going on here would be welcome.
I hear you. I also used MyDNAGE and am a year older than chronological age. I also used Inside Tracker and was 9 years younger. I agree with Bruce. The science is right but the methodology isn't perfected yet unfortunately. I have emailed MyDNAGE and have asked them why the big discrepancy but have not had a response.
Vega, I don’t know that the tests results should be discounted.
I read the MyDNA Age test is based on methylation patterns from 2,000 loci. Now when I look at an alternate epigenetic age test called truage (https://trudiagnostic.com/help-center/) they claim to check 900,000 loci, I would be curious if you had a similar result from a different epigenetic clock that looks at more regions.
If you find a similar result, perhaps you want to look at joining the triim-x trial to see if you can get your immune system revamped.
In many ways , the reliability of the examination depends on the medical equipment of the clinic . Medical equipment that becomes unusable or fails means that medical professionals cannot provide patients with a full range of services. It can also mean a long wait time or canceling an appointment until alternatives are agreed upon. Therefore, it is important that your clinic should contact equipment maintenance specialists in time, such as https://www.biomedics.com.au/resources/patient-treatment-areas/
