  • CI, confidence interval; FSGS, focal and segmental glomerulosclerosis; Cre, creatinine; IgAN, IgA nephropathy; HTN, hypertension; Upro, urine protein; MN, membranous nephropathy.

  • a The symbol × indicates the interaction between two covariates, which could be literally interpreted as and or times in this table (for example, FSGS × Upro means FSGS times the amount of urine protein).
