Table 2 Mean hearing thresholds at each low-, mid-, and high- frequency between the groups according to eGFR <60, adjusted for age

From: Association of hearing impairment with chronic kidney disease: a cross-sectional study of the Korean general population

Mean thresholds of PTA    Unadjusted Adjusted with Age

  1. Data expressed as mean ± SD, p < 0.05 was set as the significance level, and significant differences between groups are shown in bold
  2. eGFR estimated glomerular filtration rate, low-frequency (500 and 1000 Hz), mid-frequency (2000 and 3000 Hz), and high-frequency (4000 and 6000 Hz) ranges. β unstandardized coefficient, SE standard error
