From: Age differences in the relationships between risk factors and loss of kidney function: a general population cohort study

  1. n = 51,938. Data are presented as mean and 95% confidence interval
  2. aValues are differences from the adjusted mean slope of all participants (n = 51,938). Each variable was adjusted for all other variables
