Telomere Length Testing measures the length of telomeres. Because it is a way to know whether the age of the cells within the body is consistent with our actual age or not, for example, a shortened telomere means our life is getting shorter.

Over 100 studies have now shown that telomere shortening causes cell degeneration. which plays an important role in the development of age-related diseases such as Cardiovascular ( e.g. stroke, heart attacks), diabetes , dementia (Alzheimer’s , Parkinson’s , dementia) and early death set and senescence of cells in the body. Therefore, if the results of telomeres are long, it can indicate that the body’s condition is good. and will have a long life

What Is Telomere?

Telomeres are the ends of chromosomes. It is responsible for protecting the genes within the chromosomes. by telomeres will gradually become shorter Until the critical point ( Hayflick) at this point will cause the reposition of the DNA within the chromosome. As a result, the cells are unable to perform their functions. resulting in the deterioration of the organs and the body Such switching may occur with oncogenes or tumor suppressor genes , which are one of the processes that cause cancer, such as Philadelphia chromosome leukemia.

Age Affects Telomere Length

Since birth Human telomere length is approximately 10,000 base pairs. By the age of 20 years, the average length of the telomere is 8,000 base pairs; by the age of 50, about 7,000 base pairs remain, and then decreases by 50-100 base pairs per year to about 4,000 base pairs . Bass in 100 years old.
