One nice thing about the PhenoAge calculator (DNAmPhenoAge_gen) is that it lets you see how changing your blood markers correlates with younger or older biological ages.

  • Today, I spent some time looking back my previous blood tests and entering the data into the calculator, which I hadn’t always done at the time.
  • I found that my best biological age estimates, ever, were when my blood sugar was lowest.
  • I decided to play around with the calculator. I found that the main reason my results have varied, seems to correlate in large part with my blood sugar. A lower blood sugar correlates with a much better result on PhenoAge.
  • My blood sugar tends to run a little high even when I minimize carbohydrates, but there are ways to lower it, including taking compounds such as benfotiamine and berberine.
  • If I could lower my blood sugar to 70 without moving any of my other markers, my PhenoAge would be 13.19 years younger than my chronological age.
  • My mortality score would drop to 0.87 (an 8.7% chance of dying in the next ten years), compared to my current scpre pf 0.87, which indicates an 11.9% chance of dying in the next ten years).
  • So, lowering it that far over the next couple of months is my next goal… I’ll report on how it works out.
