Supplementary Material

Table S1 provides the means and SD’s of telomere length and telomerase activity for the 39 subjects with longitudinal telomere length data (N=39).

Table S2 provides the means and SD’s of telomere length and telomerase activity of the entire cohort at base visit.

Table S3 compares telomere length of different cell types from the same individual at baseline visit and 18 month follow-up visit.

Table S4 shows that after regression to the mean adjustment, baseline TL and TL change are not correlated.

Table S5 shows high correlation between baseline TL vs. 18 month TL in all cell types.

Table S6 shows correlation of telomere length change among different cell types without correction for regression to the mean (RTM).
