Decades of research have yielded over 20,000 published, peer-reviewed papers on telomeres. Below we have summarized a collection of studies that span the vast array of health and lifestyle factors that have been shown to associate with telomere length.
The TeloYears test is not intended for screening, diagnosing, treating or preventing diseases or medical conditions. The TeloYears genetic test may indicate the possibility of identifying a rare
telomere syndrome associated with extremely shorter or longer average telomere length (ATL). In these rare cases, further testing and consultation with a doctor to rule in or rule out a telomere
syndrome is recommended. The test is available for individuals between the ages of 20 to 80 within the United States, except for the states of Maryland and New York. The information provided
by the TeloYears test should not be used to replace medically appropriate screening tests recommended based upon actual age or other risk factors, nor should the information be used to make
decisions about diagnosis or treatment of diseases or medical conditions. The Telomere Diagnostics lab is regulated under the Clinical Laboratory improvement Amendments of 1988 (CLIA) as
qualified to perform high complexity clinical testing. The performance characteristics of this test were determined by Telomere Diagnostics. It has not been cleared or approved by the U.S. Food
and Drug Administration.
