TruDiagnostic has announced the launch of TruAge PACE – a new pace-of-aging test that tracks short-term changes in the rate of biological aging at a lower cost.
The Dunedin Peace Aging Algorithm (PACE) was created by researchers from Duke and the University of Otago over 50 years of longitudinal research. It provides a revolutionary way to track aging that looks at an individual’s current rate of aging, and now TruDiagnostic It announced that it is offering this powerful 3rd generation watch to the public at an affordable price through TruAge PACE.
longevity. Technology: In biological terms, aging is the process of human cells slowly losing function over time; This process can be traced by examining molecular markers called methylation and using advanced algorithms to sort those markers and calculate a person’s biological age – how old they are biologically rather than how many birthdays they have.
The ability to track aging depends on the ability of the algorithms themselves. Until recently, most algorithms were trained on chronological age, meaning that they have poor responses to interventions known to influence the biological pathway of aging. PACE gives individuals tThe ability to detect rapid aging at an early age
The Dunedin Peace Aging Algorithm (PACE) was created by researchers from Duke and the University of Otago over 50 years of longitudinal research. It provides a revolutionary method for tracking aging that looks at the current rate of biological aging of an individual .
In studies of aging, this algorithm has shown that those with accelerated aging rates (PACE value greater than 1.0) have a higher risk of poor health outcomes such as an increased risk of chronic disease diagnosis and death. The cohorts who age faster also showed a higher risk of cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s disease and other long-term chronic diseases. Faster aging is also related to the quality of life-related metrics such as balance ability, muscle mass, IQs, mental processing speed and even facial aging.
In addition, PACE has provided a high degree of accuracy and a robust ability to respond favorably to interventions known to improve aging phenotypes. .
Not all humans age in the same way or at the same rate; With PACE, individuals now have the ability to detect rapid aging at a young age and avoid it through preventative measures as young adults, rather than attempting to reverse the cumulative effects of aging that began to appear ostensibly later in life.
Older individuals can also use PACE to track the effects of interventions and real-time changes to lifelong health risks with live testing at home. Using a home sample collection kit, the customer places a few drops of blood on a blood spot card and mails it to the TruDiagnostic Lab. The kit also includes a unique barcode, which the customer records before sending the sample back, and after 2-3 weeks of laboratory processing, the results are ready; Customers can then consult with their local healthcare provider or take advantage of TruDiagnostic’s free 30-minute epigenetic consultation to review results and create a customized plan.
