  • The highest tertile was used as the reference group. HR, hazard ratio.

  • a P value for linear trend.

  • b Model 1 including age and sex.

  • c Model 2 including covariates from model 1 plus eGFR (Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration equation) and proteinuria.

  • d Model 3 including covariates from model 2 plus phosphate.

  • e Model 4 including covariates from model 3 plus cardiovascular disease comorbidity, systolic BP, and smoking history.

  • f Model 5 including covariates from model 4 plus albumin, magnesium, pyrophosphate, ionized calcium, mono Fet-A, and CTx.
