Table 4 Comparison of Asians and Whites in serially-adjusted, multivariable logistic regression models for eGFR < 60 ml/min/1.73m2 (G3a-G5) and eGFR < 45 ml/min/1.73m2 (G3b-G5)

From: Asian Americans & chronic kidney disease in a nationally representative cohort

   eGFR < 60 ml/min/1.73m2 eGFR < 45 ml/min/1.73m2
