Table 3 Multiple modeling of the association between end-stage renal disease and risk factors

From: End-stage renal disease and low level exposure to lead, cadmium and mercury; a population-based, prospective nested case-referent study in Sweden

Multiple model
Number of individuals = 244 OR 95% CI IQR OR IQR 95% CI
Ery-Pb (μg/L) 1.013 (1.003, 1.023) 0.37-1.3 1.74 (1.13, 2.68)
Ery-Hg (μg/L) 0.81 (0.66, 0.99) 39.8-83.5 0.66 (0.44, 0.98)
BMI (kg/m2) 1.13 (1.02, 1.25) 1.53-3.5 1.75 (1.10, 2.79)
Diabetes (y/n) 35.8 (4.37, 294)    
Hypertensiona (y/n) 4.23 (1.97, 9.11)    
  1. Detailed legend: Multiple modeling of the associations between end-stage renal disease and erythrocyte concentrations of lead and mercury, taking into consideration the covariates at baseline that either were statistically significant or changed any of the metal estimates.
  2. OR=odds ratio for a unit increase. CI=confidence interval. IQR= interquartile range. ORIQR=odds ratio for an interquartile range increase. BMI=Body Mass Index.
  3. aHypertension was defined as SBP >140 or DBP > 90 mm Hg, or antihypertensive medication at baseline.
