Purpose: To test the validity of glycation as an indicator of aging, using simple devices to measure glycation in skin, and to identify consistent sample locations for skin sampling from a Japanese population. Methods: The skin autofluorescence (AF) of 780 Japanese people, aged 11-88 years (244 men, mean age: 44.5 ± 18.2 years; 536 women, mean age: 42.8 ± 14.8 years) was measured at two different locations on the fore- and upper arm. The data were used to identify differences in fluorescence… Expand
