Abstract

Background. The prognostic value of reduced glomerular filtration rate (GFR) was examined in a community-based cohort of British women. Methods. Serum creatinine measurements were available for 90% (n = 3851) of a representative random sample of 4286 women aged 60–79 years. GFR was estimated using the Modification of Diet in Renal Disease equation. Hazard ratios (HR) were calculated using Cox regression with outcomes of all-cause and cardiovascular disease (CVD) mortality. Results. Eight hundred and thirty-two women (21.6%) had a GFR
