Dose-Response Relationship of Lung Function at Visit 2 (1993–1995) with Urinary Arsenic Concentrations. Solid lines and shaded areas surrounding the lines represent the weighted mean differences and 95% confidence intervals of FEV1% predicted (right panels), FVC % predicted (middle panels), and FEV1/FVC (right panels Models were conducted in the total study sample (upper panels) and stratified by sex (lower panels). These models were adjusted for age, sex (except models stratified by sex), education, study site, smoking status, smoking pack-year, eGFR, tuberculosis and BMI. Histograms in the background and right Y axis represent the distribution of urinary arsenic. The histograms were truncated by excluding 10 participants with urine arsenic concentrations above 65 μg/g of creatinine
