aAdjusted hazard ratios for death endpoint among patients according to presence of anaemia and CKD


Death from any cause

exp()((95% C.I.)

CVD only




1.985 (0.990,3.980)

CVD + Anaemia


2.356 (0.780,7.114)

CVD + CKD + Anaemia


4.334 (1.759,10.681)

Total number of patients = 617.

aThe Cox proportional hazards model used in the above analysis adjusted for the following covariates: age, gender, GMS status, smoking status, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, total cholesterol level, previous myocardial infarction, angina, heart failure, stroke, peripheral vascular disease, thromboembolic events, prior percutaneous coronary intervention, prior coronary artery bypass grafting, use of aspirin, B-Blocker, Lipid-lowering agent or ACE inhibitor.
