  • eGFR or KRT status data were available for 1697 of 1707 patients in the original cohort.

  • Count values less than 5 are marked as less than 5 to prevent re-identification of patients.

  • Patients may have more than one type of KRT during follow-up.

  • Values to one decimal place.

  • eGFR, estimated glomerular filtration rate; HHD, home haemodialysis; MCM, maximum conservative management; PD, peritoneal dialysis; UHD, unit haemodialysis.
