Fig. 3

Stratified analysis of risk for dementia between the end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and non-ESRD population by using multivariable cause-specific hazard models. HR, hazard ratio; CI, confidence interval. Hazard ratios were adjusted for age, sex, and diabetes mellitus, stroke, anemia, heart failure, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, coronary artery disease, peripheral vascular disease, malignancy, depression, obstructive sleep apnea, insomnia, alcoholism, traumatic brain injury, Parkinson’s disease, myocardial infarction, atrial fibrillation, hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. The dagger symbol indicates that no hazard ratio (HR) was estimated because no dementia event occurred in the ESRD group
