Telomere testing

Our DNA contains information about our body, ourselves, and basically everything that is going to happen from the moment we are born to the moment we die. At the very tip of the DNA sequence, we have telomeres, sections of DNA that get shorter every single time a cell replicates. In other words, short telomeres mean a shorter lifespan for our cells. Although we still don’t have a clear answer as to why these telomeres get shorter when cells divide, there is a clear link between short telomeres and aging, age-related diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer’s Disease, and mortality.

By measuring your telomere length, we can gain insight into your so-called “cellular age” and provide lifestyle recommendations to halt or even reverse the process of telomere shortening. There are also new medications on the market backed by promising research which show the possibility of increasing the life and length of your telomeres. Schedule an appointment with us and we can tell you more during our private one-on-one consultation at JativaMD.
