Ordered a test kit from mydnage today (the blood test version). I'll let you all know how it goes!

I had been thinking about it, but the thing that pushed me over the edge was that I found a coupon code on this site: https://www.wethrift.com/mydnage that worked and took 20% off the total.
I think they're heavily discounting it because the test is unreliable. I questioned the results of my first test, so they sent another kit to retest. Results of the second test were fully 12 bioyears different from the first test. There were only 2 months difference between the two tests with no changes to lifestyle or diet. Their solution? They sent two more test kits, which I didn't send back. To me, they already proved their method was totally unreliable.

Although there may be something to methylation testing, the way it's implemented with this particular company is sketchy at best. They had no good explanation for the results. Not sure if there's another methylation test that would be better but I'm waiting a few years until the tests are more accepted, mainstream, and reliable.

Ah that’s a shame. Maybe they’re not really ready for prime time yet.

Interesting rhett.
Don’t forget to post your results with your real age as a comparison and how hard your life has “been lived”
Depending on your genetics this can have a significant bearing on the results
I don't disagree this can be measured to some degree. But i do question whether this can be standardised to come up with any age.

Is this somehow related to telomeres?

I never ended up going ahead with it after Jocko’s much earlier advice about possible unreliable results.
I just use real time feelings and the fact that I can still run fast at the time when most
“old guys” are having trouble walking.. 🛴
I rode my pump up scooter 5 klms the other day to have a coffee now that the cafes have reopened. There’s not too many of us “seniors” on pump up scooters. Mine was the only one parked out the front... :lol:
