abstract

  • The prevalence of UMI was 4, 6, 6 and 13% among participants with eGFR levels of ≥ 60, 45-59.9, 30-44.9 and <30 mL/min/1.73 m(2), respectively, and 4, 5, 7 and 10% among participants with albuminuria levels of <10, 10-29.9, 30-299.9 and ≥ 300 mg/g, respectively. Compared to those with no MI, the multivariable adjusted hazard ratio for all-cause mortality associated with UMI and RMI was 1.65 [95% confidence interval (CI): 1.09-2.49] and 1.65 (95% CI: 1.20-2.26), respectively, among individuals with an eGFR <60 mL/min/1.73 m(2) and 1.49 (95% CI: 1.03-2.16) and 1.88 (95% CI: 1.40-2.52) among individuals with albuminuria ≥ 30 mg/g. Conclusion UMIs are common among individuals with an eGFR <60 mL/min/1.73 m(2) and albuminuria and associated with an increased mortality risk.
