Lymphocyte Telomere Testing (LTL)

A shortened telomere length may be indicative of some chronic degenerative medical issue occurring and possibly accelerated aging. Telomere shortening is a dynamic process.

Since telomeres respond positively to improved dietary and lifestyle choices as well as decreased oxidative stress knowing where their telomere sits in regards to reference range will allow those with shorter telomeres for their age to have the potential to change their lives, retard the hastened rate of their telomeres shortening and potentially extend their lifespan.

Telomere Length Test

 

What are telomeres?

Telomeres are repeating non-coding sequences of DNA found at the ends of our

chromosomes. They allow our cells to divide without dropping genes essential for life. They have been compared to the aglets or plastic tips found at the ends of shoelaces or the wire nuts used to protect and hold spliced electrical wires together. These DNA sequences are responsible for what has been termed the Hayflick Limit; the top number of divisions a human cell can have before it stops replicating, becoming senescent or apoptotic. This process actually protects us from unrestrained cellular division and, potentially, from cancer.

Telomere Shortening:

Telomeres become shorter over time with recurring replication as well as from oxidative stress and can only be replenished via telomerase enzyme adding back these telomeric repeats to the ends of the chromosome. Lack of this enzyme allows inordinate telomeric shortening associated with rapid aging and aging related health challenges. They act as a biomarker of aging, sort of a cellular clock.

 

Shorter telomeres have also been linked to cardiovascular disease, some cancers, osteoporosis, dementia, diabetes, and other chronic degenerative diseases of aging conditions.

 

Who Should Be Tested?

The test is designed for anyone interested in optimal health, age management and in knowing their telomere length as it relates to being within or outside the normal reference range for their chronological age.

 

Clinical Application:

A shortened telomere length may be indicative of some chronic degenerative medical issue occurring and possibly accelerated aging. Telomere shortening is a dynamic process. Since telomeres respond positively to improved dietary and lifestyle choices as well as decreased oxidative stress knowing where their telomere sits in regards to reference range will allow those with shorter telomeres for their age to have the potential to change their lives, retard the hastened rate of their telomeres shortening and potentially extend their lifespan
