Your Report


The purpose of your report is not to provide you with a diagnosis of any medical condition. This report has been supplied to alert you to areas concerning your health that may need attention. It is important that you read the full report and consider the recommendations.

Regular testing, preferably on a monthly basis is essential as health indicators can change rapidly and it is far better to be aware of these changes before it is too late to put them right.

 

Results:


Your Biological Age Result: 44



Over 70% of people have a Biological Age that is higher than their actual age. Your Biological Age is lower than your actual age, so you have had an excellent result! However we strongly advise that you read the recommendations within your report.

Even though you have had a good result this time, you should still make an appointment with your Consultant for another test. This is because future test results will be added to your Health Report charts. After a few tests you will start to see a trend which will help you see if you are getting healthier or whether there are any areas that are starting to need some attention.

What is Biological Age?

Your Biological Age is the age most people would be when they have a body and mind similar to yours. Your Chronological age is the number of years that you have been alive.

If the Chronological age of your body is 44 and your Biological Age is 40, it would be good news because this would mean that you would be a 44 year old with the system of a 40 year old. Of course it can go the other way as well.

Even though you have had a good result, your aim should be to reduce your Biological Age even further over time.

Benefits from Reducing Your Biological Age

Your Biological Age has been largely calculated from the results of the arterial stiffness test. From our teenage years, our arteries start to narrow and reduce the amount of blood and therefore oxygen reaching our skin, brain and other vital organs.

Gradually increasing the oxygen supply to all parts of our body can maintain health in the following areas:

  • Wrinkles and eye bags
  • Heart
  • Energy
  • Memory
  • Sleep

 

Stiffness Index: 3

Test result is much higher than the statistical average for your age and height group. Remedial attention required. We advise implementing the Consultants recommendations with immediate effect. Further test strongly advised within 30 days.
Test result does not match the statistical average for your age and height group. Following your Consultants recommendations may gradually bring your results closer to the statistical average. Follow up testing recommended.
You have had a good result. Your results match the statistical average for your age and height group. However the condition of the body can rapidly change and we recommend testing every three months.


The average person will have a stiffness index reading of 4. Therefore you have had an acceptable result but we would ask you to remember that all of the results within this report are to be used as a guide and for reference only. The results are not intended as a diagnosis.

Your result shows there is plenty of room for improvement. Stiff and narrowed arteries restrict the flow of blood. 98% of the oxygen the body requires is carried by the haemoglobin within the blood. Therefore if the arteries are restricting the flow of blood, your skin, brain and other vital organs are not getting the amount of oxygen they need.

Restricting oxygen to vital organs can have a severe impact on health. Reduced amounts of oxygen to your skin can reduce elasticity and speed up the appearance of wrinkles, eye bags etc.

Restricting oxygen to your brain can cause poor memory function and at extreme levels can contribute to strokes.

Restricting oxygen to your heart at extreme levels can cause a heart attack.

Restricting oxygen to your lungs can contribute to breathing difficulties.

Recommendations:

  • Drink eight glasses of pure water each day
  • Avoid fatty foods
  • Eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables
  • Try and avoid stressful situations. Stress can have a negative effect on arterial health
  • Avoid smoking
  • Avoid binge and heavy drinking
  • Avoid drinking tea and coffee. 1 cup of expresso causes arteries to allow constrict resulting in 22% less blood reaching the heart, brain, skin and other vital organs
  • Exercise – try to walk for at least 30 minutes each day
  • Ask your Consultant which natural supplement may help in your specific case

Regular testing is important in your case. The earlier you find out about possible stiffening or hardening of your arteries, the better your chance of preventing a condition called Arteriosclerosis. Arteriosclerosis is a silent killer, progressing without symptoms in the early stages.

Without regular testing for this condition, the first a person may be aware of the condition is when they suffer a potentially fatal stroke or heart attack. Two out of three heart attacks or strokes prove to be fatal or can cause severe mental or physical disabilities.

 

Stiffness Index Explained.

The Stiffness Index (SI) correlates with the ‘gold standard’ measurement for arterial stiffness. We use an index of between 1 and 8, with 1 showing the arteries to be extremely flexible and 8 reflecting the fact that the arteries may be stiff. A result of 1-3 would indicate that a person could have elastic arteries, with a reading of 4-6 showing the arteries to be less elastic. A reading of 7 or 8 could indicate even less elasticity.

The body gets its fluid from three sources:

  • Drinks, either plain water or as part of other beverages including squash
  • Solid foods, especially fruit and vegetables (even foods such as bread and cheese provide small amounts of fluid)
  • As a by-product of chemical reactions within the body

Most healthy adults need between one and a half to three litres a day, so aim to drink six to eight medium glasses of fluid daily. Beverages such as fruit juices count towards fluid intake, and may bring with them other nutrients or benefits.

You may require more fluid if you're very physically active or during periods of hot weather.

You can judge whether you're drinking enough by the colour of your urine. If it's a pale straw colour then your fluid intake is probably fine. If your urine is dark yellow, you probably need to drink more.

 

Your BMI is 24.0

Test result is much higher than the statistical average for your age and height group. Remedial attention required. We advise implementing the Consultants recommendations with immediate effect. Further test strongly advised within 30 days.

You have had a good result. Your results match the statistical average for your age and height group. However the condition of the body can rapidly change and we recommend testing every three months.


Your BMI result indicates that you are a normal weight. Researchers use a standard called the Body Mass Index (BMI) to determine a person’s weight related health risk. It’s a simple calculation based on a person’s height to weight ratio. The BMI is used to assess how much an individual’s body weight differs from what is normal or desirable for a person of his or her weight. But BMI should only be used as a rough guide – because it does not take bone or muscle mass into account.

Human bodies rank along the index from around 15 (near starvation) to over 40 (possibly morbidly obese).

Recommendations:

  • Avoid rich and fatty foods
  • Regular Exercise
  • Good hydration

Blood Pressure Explained.

Blood pressure is the pressure of blood in your arteries. Your heart is your body’s main pump and it pushes blood through your arteries by contracting and relaxing. When it contracts, it forces blood through your arteries and pushes the pressure of the blood to the highest point – the systolic pressure. When your heart relaxes between beats, your blood pressure is at its lowest – its diasystolic pressure.

The two pressures are written as two numbers, with the higher pressure first. So, if your blood pressure reads 120/80 mmHg (millimetres of mercury), this means your systolic – or upper – pressure is 120, and your diasystolic – or lower – pressure is 80. Ideally, your blood pressure should be below 140/85 but if you’ve had a heart attack, stroke, diabetes or have been diagnosed with coronary heart disease, your blood pressure should be below 130/80.

Please see the table overleaf to find the classification for your reading:

 

Level of Severity Systolic Blood Pressure Diastolic Blood Pressure
Normal90 – 11960 – 79
Pre Hypertension120 – 13980 – 89
Stage 1 Hypertension140 – 15990 – 99
Stage 2 HypertensionAbove 160Above 100

Please remember that blood pressure readings can be affected by the following:

  • Recent exercise
  • Caffeine or alcohol
  • Time of day
  • 25% of people suffer from “white coat syndrome” which is nervousness caused by undergoing the blood pressure test

Recommendations to help maintain normal blood pressure levels:

  • Increase your physical activity
  • Keep to a healthy weight
  • Reduce the salt in your diet
  • Cut down on alcohol
  • Eat a balanced, healthy diet


 

Important: Check with your Consultant which
natural supplements will help maintain your health.

It is essential that a regular check be kept on your health. Each time you have a test, your results are added to our database so you can keep a progressive check on your Biological Age, arterial health, BMI and blood pressure.
