The average values of SBP for the LE group are lower than those for the HE group until age 50. Then the curves intersect and the values of SBP in the LE males become higher than those of the HE males until age 80 where the curves intersect again and become statistically indistinguishable. The average values of VR are higher among the HE males until age 65 when the curves intersect and are similar for the next 10 years; however, above age 75 the HE curve is below the LE curve. 6a shows the average age trajectories of eight physiological indices for female participants of the Original FHS cohort for individuals having short lifespans (SL-group) (lifespan <75 years) and 100 individuals having the longest lifespans (LL-group).
