“Checking AGE values gives extra information about the past glycemic regulation of patients, certainly when you see them for the first time after 10-15 years of the start of their treatment by other doctors

The result of the test helps me also in the motivation for the good results to go on with their ‘good’ treatment and for the people with higher AGE values to change the diabetes treatment – e.g. stop smoking, increasing statins, making  better blood pressure treatment and switch to more intensive diabetes treatment like GLP1 injections or multiple therapy.

A high AGE result will make that I will go also more quickly for more intensive control for heart and blood vessel with stress-echocardio and duplex of carotic arteries – even so without specific symptoms and more specific in type1 DM women.”

“The AGE Reader allows a quick and non-invasive assessment of the accumulation in skin of the so-called AGEs. Their enhanced production and accumulation correlates with an increased cardiovascular risk and the risk for the development of diabetic complication.

Thus, the AGE Reader can be used alone or in addition to other well-established tools to identify patients at risk.”

Simple Check B.V.
Innovative company offering preventive health checks for employees and follow-up.

We noticed that the majority of the employees that participate in our health checks do not yet know about AGEs, let alone they know their own AGE value. It is our challenge to give them more insights in AGEs. Based on the AGE Reader measurement result, we provide the employees with personalized tips & tricks to keep their AGE value at a healthy level and improve general health. The solution is often easier than expected. Furthermore, we see employees getting motivated and enthusiastic to start living healthy.

“The AGE Reader gives a quick and reliable assessment of fluorescent levels in tissue. The AGE Reader SU is a convenient tool for both subject and operator. We have used this technology as a noninvasive marker for tissue AGEs in large study cohorts for several years now and are very satisfied with its performance.

We recently found inverse associations of AGE Reader measurements with cognitive performance.  Furthermore, we will continue measuring skin autofluorescence with the AGE Reader in the next few years and expect to publish our results in international peer-reviewed journals.”

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a Tricorder? For those who are not Star Trek fans and may otherwise pause reading to ‘google’it, the Tricorder was a fictional medical device that could (among other things) make detailed assessments of a person’s health status by scanning the patient’s skin. No, Diagnoptics does not yet make Tricoders, but they are moving in that direction. The skin AGE readers assess skin autofluorescence, which can be regarded as a measure of biologic age…..

‘Healthy Living Room’ project
Healthy Aging Network Northern Netherlands

We work with the AGE Reader in our ‘healthy living room’ (De Gezonde Huiskamer), a project in which we visit with a little van different locations in (the province of Groningen / the northern part of the Netherlands) and offer the inhabitants a lifestyle check… People are interested in taking the AGE Reader test and they are excited about the fact that it is quick and easy. The measurement result of the AGE Reader gives the user a good insight into the current health situation in just a short time.
After taking the test, many people expressed their health concerns or provided examples of relatives with heart problems or other health issues that run in the family. This is a very nice side effect for us as we are trying to help people start or maintain a healthier lifestyle…..
