Individual differences are the hallmark of aging. Chronological age (CHA) is known that fails to provide an accurate indicator of the aging but biological age (BA) estimates the functional status of an individual in reference to his or her chronological peers on the basis of how well he or she functions in comparison with others of the same CHA. Therefore,(More)
BACKGROUND To date, no studies have attempted to estimate body shape biological age using clinical parameters associated with body composition for the purposes of examining a person's body shape based on their age. OBJECTIVE We examined the relations between clinical parameters associated with body composition and chronological age, and proposed a model(More)
OBJECTIVES To date, no worldwide studies have been conducted to estimate the biological age of five organs using clinical biomarkers that are associated with the aging status. Therefore, we conducted this study to develop the models for estimating the biological age of five organs (heart, lung, liver, pancreas, and kidney) using clinical biomarkers which(More)
PURPOSE This study aims to propose a metabolic syndrome (MS) biological age model, through which overall evaluation and management of the health status and aging state in MS can be done easily. Through this model, we hope to provide a novel evaluation and management health index that can be utilized in various health care fields. PATIENT AND METHODS MS(More)
