Estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) slopes according to age groups with respect to representative risk factors. Values are mean (95% confidence intervals) changes in eGFR slopes adjusted for sex, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, body mass index, proteinuria, hemoglobin, total cholesterol, smoking status, history of coronary disease, history of stroke, and diabetes mellitus. For variables not mentioned in the axis labels, the average values were applied for each age group. The values of the representative risk factors (blood pressure, urinary protein, current smoking status) were chosen arbitrarily
