The purpose of this study was to determine whether diet adversely affected survival among 2572 older persons with indicators of kidney disease in a population-based cohort.
Average follow-up time for survivors, of whom 1453 (57%) had diet at analysis, was 14.5 years.
Kidney disease indicators were a « yes » response to « Has a doctor ever told you that you have kidney disease or renal stones ? » and/or trace of greater amounts of protein in urine.
Dietary protein intakes were calculated from 24-hour recalls.
Cox proportional hazards models were used, stratified by sex, with age, body mass index, blood pressure, education, smoking status, total caloric intake, and diabetes melitus as covariates.
