Table 5 Comparison of eGFR between baseline and follow-up categorized by longitudinal changes in uric acid level

From: Influence of changes in serum uric acid levels on renal function in elderly patients with hypertension: a retrospective cohort study with 3.5-year follow-up

  Baseline (ml/min per 1.73 m2) At 3.5 years (ml/min per 1.73 m2) P
N-N 76.13 ± 27.75 72.64 ± 27.06 0.035
N-H 75.59 ± 28.27 66.32 ± 27.12 0.002
H-N 69.90 ± 30.45 68.78 ± 24.89 0.705
H-H 68.10 ± 27.34 61.94 ± 30.58 0.021
  1. Note: eGFR estimated glomerular filtration rate, N-N group patients with normal uric acid throughout the follow-up period, N-H group patients with normal uric acid at baseline and hyperuricemia 3.5 years later, H-N group patients with hyperuricemia at baseline and normal uric acid 3.5 years later, H-H group patients with hyperuricemias throughout the follow-up period
