Based on the new DNA scores, what can I do to improve my healthspan?Updated 6 months ago
These new scores are powerful tools to enhance your healthspan toolkit through personalized and informed decision-making.
For example, if your genetic scores indicate potential challenges with ApoB levels or visceral fat, you can focus on a diet and exercise plan that specifically addresses these areas to promote heart health and weight management. Similarly, being aware of your epigenetic age acceleration and cognitive aging scores can prompt you to adopt lifestyle habits that support brain health, such as engaging in cognitive exercises or managing stress effectively.
Additionally, if your genetic scores suggest a predisposition to early menopause, you can work with healthcare professionals to monitor hormone levels and discuss strategies to support reproductive health. For bone mineral density, understanding your genetic tendencies can motivate you to prioritize activities (such as resistance exercise) that promote bone strength and density.
