Table 2 Adjusted mean HRQOL scores in study sample

From: Characterizing the relationship between health utility and renal function after kidney transplantation in UK and US: a cross-sectional study

  CKD stage 1–2 (eGFR ≥60) CKD stage 3 (60 > eGFR ≥ 30) CKD stage 4 (30 > eGFR ≥ 15) CKD stage 5 (eGFR<15)  
Sample Mean EQ-5Dindex P-value
US 0.83 0.85 0.78 0.72 0.04
UK 0.64 0.58 0.49 0.28 0.02
  1. Adjusted mean EQ-5Dindex scores by kidney function classes. Means estimated with general linear models. Confidence levels refer to partial Spearman’s correlation coefficient. All models have been adjusted for age, gender, months since transplant, diagnosis of diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, anxiety/depression and center of enrollment. The interaction term between center and CKD classes was not statistically significant.
