  • a All models are adjusted for age and gender. Sensitivity 1 = analyses restricted to individuals with stages 3, 4, and 5 CKD (n = 996). Sensitivity 2 = analyses restricted to individuals with stages 3, 4, and 5 CKD and following two groups of individuals with stages 1 and 2 CKD and overt proteinuria and a random selection of 54% of individuals with microalbuminuria and stage 1 CKD and 73% of those with microalbuminuria and stage 2 CKD (n = 2212). Sensitivity 3 = analyses extended to include either individuals categorized as having CKD (based on eGFR and albuminuria) or those with missing values such that their CKD status could not be ascertained (n = 6207).
