Table 1 Mendelian randomization (MR)-Egger regression intercepts

From: Causal effect between total cholesterol and HDL cholesterol as risk factors for chronic kidney disease: a mendelian randomization study

Exposure Outcome Intercepts (95% CI) P-val
TC CKD 0.015 (−0.113, 0.066) 0.573
TG CKD −0.008 (− 0.047, 0.019) 0.553
LDL-C CKD −0.032 (− 0.105, 0.037) 0.461
HDL-C CKD −0.041 (− 0.150, 0.056) 0.492
ApoA1 CKD 0.009 (−0.088, 0.049) 0.682
ApoB CKD 0.008 (−0.078, 0.036) 0.733
  1. CKD Chronic kidney disease, TC Total cholesterol, TG Triglyceride, HDL-C High-density lipoprotein cholesterol, LDL-C Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, Apo Apolipoprotein, CI Confidence interval, MR Mendelian randomization; The significant result (P > 0.05) indicates that the y-intercept of the MR-Egger regression line is not significantly different from zero and thus no pleiotropy exists
