Examining the association between serum phosphate levels and leukocyte telomere length.


ABSTRACT: Accelerated telomere attrition is related to various diseases, and multiple factors have been reported to influence telomere length. However, little attention has focused on the relationship between serum phosphate levels and mean telomere length. The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship between serum phosphate levels and mean telomere length in the US general population. A total of 7,817 participants from the 1999-2002 NHANES were included. The association between serum phosphate levels and mean telomere length was investigated using regression models. A remarkably positive relationship between serum phosphate levels and mean telomere length emerged after adjustments were made for covariates. The adjusted ? coefficient of serum phosphate levels for mean telomere length was 0.038 (95% confidence intervals (CIs), 0.022 to 0.095, p?=?0.002). A longer telomere length was observed in participants with serum phosphate levels in the highest quartiles, and a dose-dependent association was observed. Our study demonstrated that higher quartiles of phosphate had a remarkable correlation with longer telomere length.
