Risks for All-Cause Mortality: Stratified by Age, Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate and Albuminuria

Academic Article

Abstract

  • The relative reduction of risk for all-cause mortality among the elderly has been described as attenuated compared to younger subjects, but the risk for all-cause mortality increases with age when absolute risk is considered. The objectives of the present inquiry were to calculate the relative and absolute risks of all-cause mortality based on incidence rate ratios, and summarize these risks for age, gender, and race strata. We conclude that strata-specific risk summaries are more informative than a single all-encompassing risk summary, and that gender- A nd race-specific strata need to be considered as well as age-specific strata.
