Table 4: Factors associated with change in eGFR.

VariableChange in UACR (6th month minus baseline)

β coefficient value β coefficient value

Change in eGFR (6th month minus baseline)0.1980.001 −0.0020.966
Adjusted 0.0930.115

Adjustments were made for body mass index, hyperlipidemia (Yes = 1; No = 0), diabetes mellitus (Yes = 1; No = 0), smoking habit (Yes = 1; No = 0), drinking habit (Yes = 1; No = 0), change in morning systolic BP, eGFR at baseline, and the use of renin angiotensin system inhibitors.
UACR: urinary albumin to creatinine ratio. eGFR: estimated glomerular filtration rate. BP: blood pressure. : determination coefficient.
