In Growing Older Living Younger, we discuss how small changes in lifestyle and habits can have a big impact on your health and vitality as you age. Using healthy aging strategies, tools and products, you can favourably alter your aging at the cellular level by changing gene expression, and differentiating your biological age from your chronological age.
The impact of the explosion of genomic research on our understanding of biomarkers and our ability to alter biological aging, has been huge. One development has been the creation of measures of biological age that can tell you if you are physiologically younger or older than your chronological age. Precision Medicine or Precision Health is an approach for disease treatment and prevention that takes into account individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle for each person
As a practicing endocrinologist in Manhattan, today’s guest, Dr. Florence Comite, embraces Precision Medicine for both prevention and treatment. She graduated from The Yale School of Medicine, founded Women’s Health at Yale, and was on the faculty at Yale Medical School for 25 years. An endocrinologist with multidisciplinary training in Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Gynecology, and Andrology, she has conducted seminal clinical research at Yale and the NIH Institute of Child Health and Human Reproduction, in Reproductive Endocrinology and Metabolism, Adult and Pediatric Endocrinology, Gynecology and Andrology. She is the founder and CEO of Groq Health, bringing Precision Medicine to the mobile phone.
Our conversation about preventative medicine, genes and environment took several interesting turns, into discussion of how external or environmental factors can change the aging of identical twins, how low fat, carb rich diets can cause severe reactive hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar) and 5 key predictive biomarkers we should check.
