Some new biomarkers of aging

I just browsed Ward Dean’s book entitled Biological aging measurement If the reader turns to Chapter 8 beginning on page 72  you can see  data from the University of South Wales on 6 parameters- beginning with BUN (blood urea nitrogen), FEV1,(forced vital capacity ),SBP (systolic blood pressure), AP (alkaline phosphatase), ESR (Erythrocyte sedimentation rate ), and C Cholesterol in mg/100 ml. They compare tlevalues from people of different biological ages.

Although it is somewhat difficult to compare the values, it appear that the values are different from differant age groups . It may be that when a doctor finds an elevated value he should be aware that they may just indicate that the  natural aging process of that individual  is more activate than others for that chronological age group- just like you see some people who have more facial wrinkles than others off the same age group.
