Dr Oz: Life Calculator: How Old Will You Be When You Die?

Dr Oz: How Long Will You Live?

Dr Oz did a show called “How Old Will You Be When You Die?” where he presented a revolutionary Life Calculator that can estimate how long you will live.  Jay, a husband to a lady named Carol and a father of two kids named Paige and Case, joined Doctor Oz on his show because his wife is scared that his weight and bad habits are slowly killing him.  Jay has Barrett’s Esophagus, high cholesterol, acid reflux and Sleep Apnea, just to name a few of his health problems.  He was not always this way.  In fact, he played football in high school, but at the age of 30 years old, he broke his back in two places and has gained 50-60 pounds since then.  He loves to eat red meat like ribs and brisket and competes in BBQ Competitions.  Plus, he has lots of stress at work since he is a commission based salesman, and he turns to food to relax him and beer at night.

    Penny, I wish I knew the answer, but unfortunately I do not. Does anyone else know if Valerian Root can cause you to fail a drug test?

    The description of the Jay’s life closely resembles that of my husband Richard. Unfortunately, my husband did not heed the advise of his doctor or my pleading for him to take better care of himself. He took very good of his family but not himself. At one time he was very fit. He played football in college and an all-around good athlete. After the age 30 he gained weight and would go on roller-coaster diets. Both parents died of heart disease at early ages. He had two siblings with heart disease. After our three children became adults we started to travel to other parts of the world and wanted to visit as many places as possible. As we were preparing to leave on a trip to Ghana, he suddenly collapsed with a heart attack and stroke and died right before me 3 months before his 60th birthday. That is the most devastating event of anyone’s life. It has been eight years and I am still getting over it. I believe if my dear husband of thirty-three years had listened and would have thought ahead to the how much his and our future would be affected by his bad eating habits, he would have done things differently. Since his passing, he has missed one of daughter’s wedding (this was extremely difficult for me). He has missed many special events involving our only grandson. Men who were athletes as young people need to know that they they need to make timely adjustments regarding their health as time passes. Thank goodness Jay has learned this and hopefully he will follow through on the information provided by Dr. Oz. I myself have always been somewhat of a health fanatic but losing my health took an emotional toll on my health and I had to take medication for depression. I did gain some weight but I continued to exercise and I now off of the depression medication and I lead a healthy lifestyle. I love the Dr. Oz show and I have a shoebox full of notes from the show. I share the information with all of my friends who are unable to watch the show. Anytime I see a magazine with Dr. Oz’s picture on the cover I purchased because I know there will be good, helpful information inside. Thanks for all of the information. You are helping to save many lives and that is a real blessing for everyone. I am hoping to visit New York so that I can attend the show one day.

    I think just stressing the LDL number without mentioning HDL is misleading. It is well known that it is the ratio that matters. If you have high level of HDL, you can have relatively high level of LDL to be healthy. On the other hand, even though you have a low (<100) LDL, if your HDL is low (<40), you're still at high risk. For me personally, I have a high HDL (65), my doctor said my LDL level can go as high as 160 and still be healthy.

    BMI:
    (1) multiply your wt by 0.45
    (2) multiply your height in inches by 0.025
    (3) square the answer of (2); [e.g. 1.65×1.65=2.72]
    (4) divide (1) by (3); [e.g. 68 divided by 2.72=25]
    If it’s over 25, you are overweight, like everyone else.
