Rate of eGFR change according to baseline hospitalizations

Rate of eGFR Change per YearPatients with Baseline Hospitalizations (n=51,566)Patients without Baseline Hospitalizations (n=196,322)
Average (SD)−0.44 (6.21)0.35 (6.14)
Median (IQR)−0.70 (−3.05, 1.67)−0.34 (−2.40, 2.32)
  • eGFR change values are given in ml/min per 1.73 m2 per year. Baseline hospitalizations are hospitalizations during the period in which eGFR change was assessed (October 1999 to September 2004). IQR, interquartile range.
