Life Expectancy

7 Ways to predict how long you'll live

Among the most pressing questions I get in daily practice is ! " Doc , how bad is it"?

When it comes to well persons, prognostication is even tougher.  Good genes, healthy habits, and good mental outlook may help you live longer.  But longevity points are not strictly allocated on merit.

So here are some additional , scientifically validated prediction of your life expectancy.
1. Take you pulse- normal 40-60 resting
2. Get a grip- hand strength is a better prediction of mortality than blood pressure
3. Get-on-up sitting rising test predicts arm, leg and knee strength
4. Chair rise prediction of muscular strength- the more reps you can do the better health you may have
5. Balance test: Japanese septuagenarians found balance is just as important to longevity and agility and muscle strength
6. Gait speed: walk speed is a very good prediction of the risk of dying, especially ages 70-75 old.
7. Get out a measuring tape: Research demonstrates that the waist-to-height ratio is more predictable the Body-Mass-Index- Women waist 36 inches-men 6 foot or taller 29.9 inches
