In the left Y-axis, restricted spline curve showing the age, gender and comorbidities-adjusted Hazard ratios and 95% confidence intervals (CI) (dashed lines) for all-cause mortality associated with BMI in 1,911 incident PD patients. The model is plotted as restricted cubic splines with four knots. Log HR, Log transformed Hazard ratio; 95% CI, lower and upper 95% confidence intervals, respectively. P for linearity = 0.01.

A) Univariate and multivariate Cox regressions for predictors of all-cause mortality in incident patients. B) Univariate and multivariate Cox regressions for predictors of all-cause mortality in incident patients with competing risk analysis. Hazard Ratios (HR) for all-cause mortality [and 95% confidence intervals (CI)] for patients with BMI <18.5 kg/m2, BMI 25 to 29.9 kg/m2 and BMI >30 kg/m2. Patients with BMIs ranging from 18.5 to 24.9 kg/m2 were considered the reference. p-value, significance level <0.05. The models are adjusted for potential confounders, i.e., baseline comorbidities (cardiovascular disease (CVD) and diabetes mellitus (DM), automated peritoneal dialysis or continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis, renal replacement therapy, and calendar year (CY) (2005, 2006 and 2007).
