When asked how old you are, your answer is likely the number of years since birth. However, your doctor may say you have physiological conditioning that is way younger than your chronological age. Regardless of how many years you have lived, biological age testing is the ultimate indicator of longevity.

Biological Age Tells A Lot More About Your Health:
Chronological Age vs. Biological Age
Your chronological age is the number of years that have passed since your birth. Therefore, people primarily use it to determine their “age.” On the other hand, biological age (also called physiological or functional age) differs from chronological age because it considers several factors besides the years, months, days.
While your chronological age can be the exact number, it’s not that easy to tell one’s biological age as it depends on a number of variables.
Biological Age Testing Tells How Well You Are Aging
But why biological age? The basic idea behind the discrimination between chronological age and biological age is aging. Aging occurs at a cellular level in which cells and tissues in the body are damaged over time. With biological age, medical professionals can learn how well a person is aging, thus coming up with optimization strategies appropriate for their patients’ current conditioning.
It all boils down to the measurement of different factors (or biomarkers), including:
- Chronological Age
- Existing Diseases and Conditions
Combined with mathematical models, these biomarkers help physicians figure out your real ‘age.’ With that said, one may not end up having the same biological age as their chronological age.
For example, if you are a 25-year-old male who smokes three packs of cigarettes every day for the last ten years, barely hits the gYunique, craves sugar and high-fat foods, and is likely to have a biological age of greater than 25 years.
YM is excited to serve our patients with the most robust epigenetic test in the world – the TruAgeTM tests from TruDiagnostics.
Our test takes precise measurements of your epigenetic age. We then use the acquired data from these tests and a detailed examination of respective biomarkers to construct tailored anti-aging strategies that best serve our customers.
At YM, we align our biological age testing with the same holistic approach as other precision therapies such as peptides, senolytics, ultraviolet blood irradiation, strategies for lifestyle changes, and supplementation. In complimentary with the test, those functional medicines will deliver real life-changing experiences. Start your wellness journey with YM here!
Your chronological age will always increase at a set rate as the years passing. Thanks to biological age testing, we can develop the right strategies and lifestyle changes to slow down our biological clock and age better!
