Supplementary Material

The supplementary materials provided include four tables. The first shows the 4 equations used to estimate GFR in this manuscript. The second table outlines the net reclassification improvement formulae used. Finally, the last two tables display the results of Cox proportional hazards regression analysis using quartiles of eGFR instead of categories of eGFR as the predictor of all-cause or cardiovascular death.
