InquilineKea Posted October 24, 2015 Report Share Posted October 24, 2015 I'm thinking of trying it, but am not sure if it's worth the cost ($2000, but may increase soon). It has HUGE potential in the future. It gives you a fitbit, whole genome sequencing, and blood tests of 93 metabolic biomarkers, shown at the bottom. In addition, it collects sample discovery-based assays of 6,000 other biomarkers (measured from metabolon) - it also banks people's blood so that more bioassays of the blood markers could be measured. These measurements are kept from the user unless the user specifically requests the data, however (and I'm not sure if others have made use of it). These measurements might include metrics like carbonylated proteins, many lipid metabolites (measuring one's lipidome), and advanced glycation endproducts. If it's just for the FitBit and the measurements below, I'm not sure if it's really worth it (I already have my genome sequenced by the personal genome project, though it's unclear whether or not the quality/coverage of PGP genome sequencing matches that of Arivale sequencing). If I can get clean access of the data of the 6,000 other biomarkers, though, I'd think it's more worth the cost. Anyways - just wondering - has anyone else here considered/tried Arivale? Ultimately, I'm interested in biomarkers that may be correlated with aging (these will include ones beyond just the standard ones). I already know how to keep glucose/insulin/triglycerides/etc under control. I also might have slight hopes that I might quantify my body as extensively as that of Larry Smarr or David Ewing Duncan. I'd also like to see if they could quantify the 18 things here: http://www.pnas.org/content/112/30/E4104.abstract IL-6IL-8TNF-ALPHAANTIOXID CAP, TOTALADIPONECTIN, SERUMCRP HIGH SENSITIVITYFOLIC ACID, SERUMFERRITINGLUTATHIONE, TOTALGLYCOHEMOGLOBIN A1CARSENIC, BLOODMERCURY, BLOODLEAD, BLOODINSULINALBUMINA/G RATIOALKALINE PHOSPHATASEALAT (SGPT)ASAT (SGOT)BILIRUBIN, DIRECTBILIRUBIN, INDIRECTBILIRUBIN, TOTALUREA NITROGENCALCIUMCARBON DIOXIDE (CO2)CHLORIDECHOLESTEROL, TOTALHDL CHOL DIRECTLDL-CHOL CALCULATIONCREATININE ENZ, SERGGTGLOBULINGLUCOSELACTIC DEHYDROGENASEPHOSPHORUS INORGANICPOTASSIUMPROTEIN, TOTAL SERUMSODIUMTRIGLYCERIDESBUN/CREAT RATIOURIC ACIDCREATININE ENZ, SERGFR, MDRDPAI-1 ANTIGEN, QNTHOMOCYSTEINE, SERUMLDL PARTICLE NUMBERLDL SMALLLDL MEDIUMHDL LARGELDL PATTERNLDL PEAK SIZEMETHYLMALONIC ACIDOMEGA-3 INDEXOMEGA-6/OMEGA-3EPA/ARACHIDONIC ACIDARACHIDONIC ACIDEPADHACOPPER, RBCMANGANESE, SERUMSELENIUM, SERUMSUPEROX DISMUT SODZINC, RBCRED CELL COUNTRDWWHITE CELL COUNTPLATELET COUNTHEMATOCRITHEMOGLOBINMCVMCHMCHCMPVMONOCYTES ABSOLUTEMONOCYTESNEUTROPHILS ABSOLUTENEUTROPHIL, SEGSTOTAL NEUTROPHILS ABTOTAL NEUTROPHILSBASOPHILS ABSOLUTEBASOPHILSEOSINOPHILS ABSOLUTEEOSINOPHILSLYMPHOCYTES ABSOLUTELYMPHOCYTESVITAMIN D3, 25-OHVITAMIN D2, 25-OHVITAMIN D, 25-OH TOTHOMA-IRCORTISOL SAL BREAKFASTCORTISOL SAL LUNCHCORTISOL SAL DINNERCORTISOL SAL BEDTIMEDHEA-S SAL BREAKFAST Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
