Any age experts here know how this can happen to a 23 yo? Could it be a nutrient deficiency and/or rogue interaction?

"Nguyen Thi Phuong was 23 years old when she switched medications to treat an itchy allergic reaction to seafood. A mixture of drugs left her skin sagging and wrinkled in a matter of days."

They now believe it is mastocytosis:

"However, a recent trip to Ho Chi Minh City Medicine and Pharmacy University Hospital reveals Phuong might be suffering from mastocytosis, an incurable disorder caused by the presence of too many mast cells, the Thanh Nien News reported"

What might we be able to deduce from this as far as cell aging goes? And if this is potentially reproducable, might the knowledge of that whatever method creates it be used to reverse aging? Of course, I am also wondering if there is any way to tap into the opposite outcome via nutrition.

Thank you Dragonfly. You know, you and I have been going back and forth these past few days but I have been reading your posts and have gotten a lot of good reading out of it. I think I mentioned before, I do not have all the answers so I am always willing to check my ego at the door and learn a bit more every day. After all that is what this site is all about. ;)

Ok, I understand this is supposed to be serious I guess. What's her life expectancy with this sort of condition now? Has it "aged" her internal organs like this as well?

By the speed it looks like acelerated Warner syndrome. Vitamin C helps, ofc. See about it here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Werner_syndrome#Treatment

Bree - you can just type her name into google and take your pick. It's all over the place. Here's one example of many: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/howaboutthat/8826277/Mystery-condition-makes-woman-age-50-years-in-just-a-few-days.html

I think this is what happens when you don't eat all your veggies.
