Abstract

The article presents the physiological and hygienic justification for the rating scale for biological age “Bio-age”, developed during preventive medical examinations in the Health Center of 602 students (253 boys and 349 girls) aged 18-22 years in 2014/17. To develop the biological age assessment scale “Bio-age”, the following indices were used: the level of total cholesterol and blood glucose, blood pressure, the percentage of the fat, active cell mass and total water in the body, basic metabolism, vital, power and ankle-brachial index, activity index of regulatory systems. The assessing the biological age on the scale “Bio-age” revealed half of the students (57.1% of the boys and 52.0% of the girls) to have a biological age corresponding to the passport age. There were revealed 5.6% accelerated young men and 9.5% retarded girls. Comparison of the results obtained according to the scale “Bio-age” with the data of the evaluation by the method of V.P.Voitenko, as the most widespread in our country, did not reveal significant differences between the two methods and confirmed their informationally equal importance. The biological age rating scale “Bio-age” is used in the course of preventive examinations of students at the Health Center. The expediency of determining the biological age of students contributes to their conscious reorientation to a healthy lifestyle, which is the key to their more successful training in professional skills.
