“Obesity, depression, high blood pressure, asthma: These are just a few of the chronic health conditions that are now affecting almost 40 million Americans between the ages 18 and 34,” investigators concluded. Federal data from 2019 “found that more than half of young adults (nearly 54%) now deal with at least one chronic health issue,” with “the most prevalent conditions” being “obesity (25.5%), depression (21.3%), and high blood pressure (10.7%).” The findings were published online in the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.
Chronological age is the number of years a person has been alive. Biological age, on the other hand, is a measure of how well a person’s body is functioning. It is possible for someone’s chronological age to be different from their biological age. For example, a 60-year-old who is in good health and has no chronic diseases may have the biological age of a 40-year-old. Similarly, a 30-year-old who smokes cigarettes, does not exercise, and has high blood pressure may have the biological age of a 50-year-old.
Anti-Aging or Longevity Medicine is based on the premise that many of the disease associated with aging are preventable and treatable. By targeting the underlying causes of these disease early, it is possible to slow down the aging process and improve quality of life.
