At Rock Creek Wellness in Leawood, KS, we offer unique biological age testing options that can indicate your true internal age and your risk level for certain age-related diseases. Your age is more than just a number; with this testing process, we can help you understand that. Our tests will provide you with the information you need to make changes to improve your health and lifestyle so you can lower your internal age and live a long, healthy life.
Biological Age Testing
Epigenetic (DNA) Methylation testing is an important preventative process and has provided men and women with their biological age for decades. These tests by TruDiagnostic are the most sophisticated options available to predict biological age. Your numerical age on its own presents a risk factor for chronic diseases.
Still, with this testing process, we can provide patients with information on how to intervene and make the necessary changes to reduce the risk of age-related diseases. Each test is personalized to the needs of each patient based on their biological age so that they can take steps to make positive lifestyle changes to lower their biological age and protect their bodies from disease and accelerated aging.
Am I a Candidate for Testing?
The good news is that everyone is a candidate for biological age testing. These tests can shed some light on your health and what needs to change in your life so that you can become the healthiest version of yourself and increase your lifespan.
If you’re unsure which test to choose, we can give you more details about each and help you make the right decision. We can also provide you with details about how often to retest based on your needs so that you can see the effect of your positive lifestyle changes on your biological age.
Our Testing Options
TruAge Complete Collection
The TruAge Complete Collection is a test from TruDiagnostic that we offer to measure telomere length. It also measures DNA methylation, providing an accurate measure of biological age. This test only requires a few drops of blood but will provide you with important health markers that will allow you to evaluate your lifestyle and habits so that you can take the necessary steps to improve your health.
The safe, accurate, and simple test gives you a wealth of information about your health. It’s an important preventative step as it helps ensure that you invest in your health and avoid the habits and activities that will decrease your biological age.
A Test Accessible to Everyone
We include this test for all new Premier Care patients and build it into their established care fee, but we also offer it to non-patients at a $450 rate. We recommended that patients schedule a retest 12 months after their initial test, but they can schedule retesting as early as six months if necessary.
We also offer TruAge PACE, a test that gives patients a personalized look into their unique rate of aging. We can use this test to provide actionable insights which will measure the biological pace of aging. This test focuses on short-term changes in methylation.
Of all the age-related testing options available, TruAge PACE has been named the most predictive biomarker for health consequences. You can schedule this test every three months to track the epigenetic changes that come from your lifestyle improvements and clinical interventions.
Customizing Your Testing
Scheduling TruAge PACE alongside the TruAge Complete Collection will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of your own biological aging and the effect of your positive lifestyle changes. Unlike the TruAge Complete Collection, this test will measure DNA methylation only, not your telomere length.
TruAge PACE is simple, and the collection process only requires a few drops of blood. We offer this test for $199 so that patients can understand how quickly their bodies are aging and take steps to slow the process.
