Chronic kidney disease (CKD) stages 1-4 are defined as a urinary albumin/creatinine ratio (ACR) >30 mg/g (single measurement) or estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) between 15 and 59 ml/min/1.73 m². The eGFR was computed using the Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) study equation.
Abnormal lipid values are defined in the Adult Treatment Plan III guidelines developed by the Expert Panel on Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Cholesterol in Adults.
