[1] Renal function categories were defined by estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) calculated based on modification of diet in renal disease (MDRD) formula. Moderately impaired = eGFR 30 to 59 milliliter per minute (mL/min); mildly impaired = eGFR 60 to 89 mL/min; normal renal function=eGFR >=90 mL/min.
[2] Baseline medication included angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB) and angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEi).
