  • Predicted variable: LVMI (R2 for model 0.303). Independent variables: gender (male 0, female 1), serum phosphate, office systolic blood pressure, log albumin/creatinine ratio (ACR) and haemoglobin.

  • B, unstandardised coefficient; β, standardised coefficient; LVMI, left ventricular mass index.
