  • HRs are adjusted for age, race, sex, geographic region of residence, income, education, and history of stroke and coronary heart disease. Supplemental Appendix has definitions of ideal levels for each Life Simple 7 factor.

  • a HR could not be estimated, because no incident ESRD events occurred in this group.
