It was interesting to see that there is an optimal level for Albumin.  I know the Levine spreadsheet treats extra Albumin as being always of benefit, but clearly that is untrue.  I don't know how Aging.ai do their calculations.

A disparity also exists for other biomarkers, including WBCs. Levine's test will treat < 3.5 as youthful, but there's survival data shows that level (and below) to not be optimal for health or longevity. Even more of a reason to focus on what's found in youth and ACM risk, too.

I agree that there are broader issues.

 

One thing I am looking at is the accuracy of the blood tests.   Some markers change when the blood is left before testing it.  Hence I had two tests done last Thursday by different labs.  One I took to the Lab myself and the other went in the post.  Creatinine on one was 85.64 umol/l and on the other 122.  Creatinine is created in blood that is left standing (probably more so in the warmth).

 

My current focus is on trying to make sure that cells function properly.  Oddly enough I have had some success with hair and I have a limited amount of regrowth of finer hairs where I have been bald for a number of years.

My albumin seems to fluctuate between 40-50g/L without rhyme or reason. I suspect the tests are not accurate enough for individualised testing unless you take ALOT of tests. My results were derived from blood that is posted.

I started weekly tests on 5/5 and the results for Albumin were: 44, 48, 48,47,47, 46 and last week sending the same sample to two labs was 43 and 44.14.  The 43 was posted.  Last year with a completely different lab I had a 40 result.  I am doing two tests tomorrow with the lab I take the sample to and one of the postal online labs.

 

My reason for doing frequent tests is that I have this protocol which makes senescent cells start to function:

https://johnhemming....cent-cells.html

 

a) It is an original protocol so there is no published work on its effects (other than my blog above) hence what side effects it has are not entirely predictable.

b) It does have side effects which I wish to manage so I want to know if my blood biochemistry indicates any problems quite quickly.

Most biomarkers are impacted by lots of stuff. I've minimized most of these variables, and as you can see in the video, the albumin range in my data is relatively tight.

One of the most irritating variables is the competence of the testing Lab.  I have given up on a large Lab in the UK which took samples via the post and often (particularly in warm weather) gave results tainted by post sampling metabolism. 

 

The funny story is that last Saturday they phoned my doctor worried about a low glucose level (2.9) which was entirely because of testing problems (probably delay).  I know it is a rubbish result because I gave two samples and took one to a lab which tested it reasonably quickly.

Nice, thank you.

Impact of diet/albumin also stressed in the Insilico's paper

https://pubmed.ncbi....h.gov/27191382/

.... tough I lost a bit my trust due to the DeepLongevity willingness to solve a bug in their aging.ai V1.0 no longer working but still offered (are they hiding something?)

For the record: from age 50 to 66 (16 years, n=21) my albumin went from 52 to 48 g/l. Any comment?

Based on the ACM data in the video, that's likely a good thing. Now the challenge is to keep it at 48, and to resist the age-related decline.

my apologies for misprinting ... I meant "un-willingness"
