Linear regression analysis for risk factors for decreased estimated glomerular filtration rate
Parameters Univariable Multivariable
B (95 % CI) Pvalue B (95 % CI) Pvalue
Age (yr) −1.4 (−1.6 to −1.1) < 0.001 −1.1 (−1.3 to −0.8) < 0.001
Gender 0.7 (−4.7 to 6.2) 0.797 5.1 (0.7 to 9.5) 0.022
Years from diagnosis −1.3 (−1.7 to −0.9) < 0.001 - -
Hypertension −23.4 (−29.2 to −17.6) < 0.001 −8.5 (−14.0 to −3.0) 0.003
Albumin/Cr (mg/g) −9.3 (−11.7 to −7.0) < 0.001 −5.6 (−7.6 to −3.6) < 0.001
NAG/Cr (IU/g) −16.5 (−20.7 to −12.3) < 0.001 −4.5 (−8.6 to −0.5) 0.03

Data were adjusted for age, years from diagnosis, hypertension and albuminuria. Albumin/Cr and NAG/Cr were log-transformed to fulfill the requirement of normal distribution of residuals. Cr, creatinine; NAG, N-Acetyl-β-D-glucosaminidase.
