Hazard ratios for non-cardiovascular-non-cancer causes of mortality depending on kidney function were modeled by separate restricted cubic splines for cystatin C-based kidney function in a Cox-regression model. The model was adjusted for n-3 fatty acids treatment, age, sex, diabetes, current smoking, ratio serum cholesterol-HDL, statin-use, use of anti-hypertensive medication, systolic and diastolic blood pressure. An eGFR of 120 ml/min/1.73m2 was taken as the reference point (hazard ratio 1).
