At Noviu Health, we are dedicated to pioneering preventive health and longevity medicine, seeking innovative ways to enhance your well-being and extend your vitality. In this blog post, we shed light on the AGE (Advanced Glycation End products) Reader—a screening tool that offers a unique insight into the ageing process and the impact of glycation on your health.
What is the AGE Reader?
AGE Reader is a sophisticated diagnostic device that measures the levels of Advanced Glycation End products in your skin. These end products are formed when sugars react with proteins and fats, a process known as glycation. As we age, the accumulation of these compounds contributes to various health issues, making AGE Reader a valuable tool for assessing and managing the impact of glycation on your body.
How is This Related to Longevity?
Understanding the levels of Advanced Glycation End products in your body provides a unique window into the ageing process. Elevated levels of AGEs have been associated with a range of age-related conditions, including diabetes complications, cardiovascular diseases, and neurodegenerative disorders. By monitoring and addressing these levels proactively, we can intervene early to prevent or mitigate the impact of age-related diseases.
Preventive health is at the core of our approach at Noviu Health. AGE Reader allows us to identify potential health risks before they manifest clinically, enabling us to tailor interventions that can positively influence your longevity and overall well-being.
Abnormal AGE Reader Results?
Abnormal levels of Advanced Glycation End products may indicate an increased risk of developing age-related diseases. This could manifest as premature skin ageing, cognitive decline, or an elevated risk of cardiovascular complications. By detecting these abnormalities early, we can implement targeted strategies to mitigate the impact of glycation and support your journey towards a healthier, longer life.
Optimising Your Longevity
At Noviu Health, we’re committed to working with you to improve your health and longevity. In the case of abnormal AGE Reader results, we will conduct a thorough assessment to understand the contributing factors. Based on this analysis, we will develop a personalised plan that may include lifestyle modifications, dietary changes, and, if necessary, specific medical interventions.
Regular follow-ups and ongoing monitoring will allow us to track your progress and adjust your plan as needed. Our goal is not only to address the immediate concerns highlighted by AGE Reader results but also to empower you with the knowledge and tools to proactively manage your health for the long term.
While the AGE Reader is a useful tool for assessing cardiovascular risk, there are more precise and quantifiable screening methods, such as a CT Coronary Angiogram, which allows for direct visualisation of any calcification in your heart vessels. If you are concerned about your cardiovascular risk or have a family history of heart disease, our doctors will be able to advise you on suitable screenings.
