Hospitalization Metrics | Unadjusted Comparison | Adjusted for Early/Late Periods and Mean eGFR | ||||
---|---|---|---|---|---|---|

Stable Periods | Decline Periods | Unadjusted Difference (Stable–Decline) | P Value | Adjusted Difference (Stable–Decline) | P Value | |

Periods with hospitalization (%) | 31 | 41 | OR, 0.63 (0.31 to 1.3) | 0.21 | OR, 0.66 (0.29 to 1.5) | 0.31 |

Hospitalization episodes per year (n) | 0.12 | 0.25 | −0.13 (0.05) | 0.013 | −0.13 (0.06) | 0.02 |

Total duration of hospitalizations per year (d) | 0.61 | 1.8 | −1.2 (0.55) | 0.03 | −1.1 (0.57) | 0.05 |

For the first binary metric, the difference is expressed as odds ratio (OR) with 95% confidence intervals. For the other two continuous metrics, the differences are expressed as the mean differences with estimated SEMs.
