BACKGROUND Effects of decreased estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) on cardiovascular disease (CVD) mortality are uncertain in Chinese general populations. STUDY DESIGN Prospective cohort study. SETTING & PARTICIPANTS 17,026 adults 50 years and older in Taiwan. A subset of 7,968 had repeated measurements. PREDICTOR Decreased eGFR and its progression. eGFR was calculated from serum creatinine level by using the Modification of Diet in Renal Disease Study equation. OUTCOMES… CONTINUE READING
