Kaplan-Meier estimated survival curves. Patients who were under medical supervision (n=389) showed a higher survival and longer time to achieve a eGFR of less than 15 cc/min compared with those who were not under medical observation (n=76) (34 vs 84months), according to the Log Rank test significance level (p<0.0001). Supervised patients also had less need for RRT and less death compared with controls (20 vs. 67months) (P = 0.029)
