This study is a year old, but just wondering if anyone who’s had COVID has any before vs after results on any of the popular aging-marker tests?
Interesting finding. There’s long covid, and VERY long covid.
They used some very funky DNA measuring algorithm, not familiar with it, nor did I dive into why this was chosen (emailed authors). What would phenoage have shown?
4.5. DNAmAge Estimation
Bekaert’s algorithm was applied to estimate the biological age of the population  as reported in Daunay et al. :
26.44119 − 0.201902 × ASPA − 0.239205 × EDARADD + 0.0063745 × ELOVL22 + 0.6352654 × PDE4C
A lot of inter-person variation in the data, some VERY high COVID-19+ aging results. Aged 20 yrs from COVID?
And on telomeres,
“TL shortening has been reported as a risk factor for developing more severe COVID19 syndrome. The correlation between DeltaAge distribution and TL indicates that post-COVID19 survivors compared with the COVID-free group, have shorter telomeres independent of an accelerated DeltaAge, suggesting that these two parameters might be regulated independently.”
