Table S2. Mean (SD) of biomarkers in robust, pre-frail and frail caregivers. At baseline, trends were observed between inflammatory and nutritional markers and frailty status. The mean levels of CRP and IL-6 were higher in frail caregivers than in robust caregivers. In contrast, mean levels of nutritional markers were lower in frail caregivers than in robust ones.
