Cox proportional hazards model for the risk of NODAT by time-fixed serum Mg levels

Exposure VariablesTime-Fixed Magnesium Level
HR (95% CI)P Value
Continuous MgMg (per 0.1 mmol/L decrease)1.24 (1.05 to 1.46)0.01
Average Mg in the first month post-transplant1.21 (1.02 to 1.45)0.03
Dichotomous MgHypomagnesemia (Yes versus No)1.58 (1.07 to 2.34)0.02
Average Mg in the first month post-transplant1.40 (0.94 to 2.07)0.10
  • Unit conversion for serum Mg: 1 mmol/L=2.43 mg/dl. Models were adjusted for recipient age, sex, race, body mass index, peak PRA, time on dialysis, eGFR, pretransplant hypomagnesemia, cause of ESRD, donor age, sex, history of hypertension, body mass index, donor type, delayed graft function, regraft, type of CNI at baseline, and transplant era. PRA, panel reactive antibody.
