Table 3 Hazard ratio for of 0.1 mg/dL decrease in serum bilirubin levels

From: Association of serum bilirubin levels with mortality in patients with diabetes initiating chronic hemodialysis: a competing risks analysis of a single-center cohort

Cause of death Subdistribution model Cause-specific model
HR (95 % CI) P value HR (95 % CI) P value
All causes 1.28 (0.93–1.75) 0.121 1.25 (0.95–1.61) 0.107
ASCVD 2.27 (1.20–4.35) 0.011 2.17 (1.35–3.57) 0.002
Non-ASCVD 0.88 (0.62–1.27) 0.507 0.88 (0.63–1.23) 0.451
  1. Hazard ratios for 0.1 mg/dL decrease in serum bilirubin levels for mortality was estimated using the Fine-Gray subdistribution hazard model and cause-specific model. The following variables were incorporated as independent variables: age, sex, duration of diabetes mellitus, history of ASCVD, smoking, date of hemodialysis initiation, body mass index, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, HbA1c, hemoglobin, serum albumin, logarithmically transformed triglycerides, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol
