Table 2 Multivariate analysis of eGFR in lithium patients and controls.

From: Duration of lithium treatment is a risk factor for reduced glomerular function: a cross-sectional study

Variable Beta Pvalue 95% CI
Current age -0.51 < 0.001 -0.70 -0.33
Gender (male versus female) 11.18 < 0.001 5.73 16.63
Duration of lithium treatment (years) -0.64 < 0.001 -0.90 -0.38
  1. Control patients were assumed to have spent zero years on lithium. F test = 31.8; P value of the model < 0.0000001; R 2 = 0.32. CI, confidence interval; eGFR, estimated glomerular filtration rate.
