FGF fibroblast growth factor, OR odds ratio, CI confidence interval.

Model1, crude.

Model2, adjusted for age and sex.

Model3, adjusted for model2 plus hypertension, diabetes mellitus, smoking, and dyslipidemia.

Model4, adjusted for model3 plus eGFR, serum phosphorus, serum calcium, intact PTH, and proteinuria.

eGFR estimated glomerular filtration rate, PTH parathyroid hormone.
