Risk FactorAdjusted forHR (95% CI)
Age (per 1 yr)Demographics + baseline creatinine1.06 (1.03 to 1.09)
Demographics + baseline creatinine + traditional risk factors1.08 (1.05 to 1.10)
Gender (male versus female)Demographics + baseline creatinine1.43 (1.06 to 1.93)
Demographics + baseline creatinine + traditional risk factors1.33 (0.96 to 1.83)
Race (nonwhite versus white)Demographics + baseline creatinine1.56 (1.11 to 2.20)
Demographics + baseline creatinine + traditional risk factors1.46 (1.02 to 2.10)
Creatinine (per SD)bDemographics1.78 (1.59 to 2.00)
Demographics + traditional risk factors1.65 (1.48 to 1.85)
  • a Demographics: age, gender, and race; traditional risk factors: diabetes, hypertension, current smoking, HDL, LDL, and prevalent CHD. CI, confidence interval; HR, hazard ratio.

  • b Scaled variable = variable/SD of variable.
