Figure 1. Hazard ratio for site-specific cancer mortality with high eGFR ≥ 90 mL/min/1.73 m2
Cancer-specific mortality was examined according to renal function at baseline by Cox proportional hazard modeling. Hazard ratios and 95% confidence intervals (CI) were calculated with adjustment for age and sex, and with multivariable adjustment for blood pressure, anti-hypertensive treatment, current cigarette smoking, status of glucose tolerance, diabetes treatment, alcohol intake, body mass index, serum total cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol, taking lipid-lowering drugs, and dipstick proteinuria (1+ or more).
