  • Sustained microalbuminuria was defined as urine AER<300 mg/d on two successive occasions. Sustained normoalbuminuria was defined as urine AER<30 mg/d on two successive occasions. Nephrotic-range albuminuria was defined as AER≥3000 mg/d. Participants who developed ESRD were considered to have met each eGFR outcome (<60, <45, and <30 ml/min per 1.73 m2).

  • a Twenty-nine of one hundred fifty-nine participants with macroalbuminuria were not at risk for sustained microalbuminuria or normoalbuminuria, because they did not have two AER measurements after macroalbuminuria diagnosis.
