In general populations, healthy lifestyle is associated with fewer adverse outcomes. We estimated the degree to which adherence to a healthy lifestyle decreases the risk of renal and cardiovascular events among adults with chronic kidney disease (CKD).
SETTING and PARTICIPANTS:
3,006 adults enrolled in the Chronic Renal Insufficiency Cohort (CRIC) Study.
4 lifestyle factors (regular physical activity, body mass index [BMI] of 20- < 25kg/m(2), nonsmoking, and "healthy diet"), individually and in combination.
CKD progression (50% decrease in estimated glomerular filtration rate or end-stage renal disease), atherosclerotic events (myocardial infarction, stroke, or peripheral arterial disease), and all-cause mortality.
Multivariable-adjusted Cox proportional hazards.
During a median follow-up of 4 years, we observed 726 CKD progression events, 355 atherosclerotic events, and 437 deaths. BMI = 25kg/m(2) and nonsmoking were associated with reduced risk of CKD progression (HRs of 0.75 [95% CI, 0.58-0.97] and 0.61 [95% CI, 0.45-0.82] for BMIs of 25 to < 30 and = 30kg/m(2), respectively, versus 20 to < 25kg/m(2); HR for nonsmoking of 0.68 [95% CI, 0.55-0.84] compared to the current smoker reference group) and reduced risk of atherosclerotic events (HRs of 0.67 [95% CI, 0.46-0.96] for BMI of 25- < 30 vs 20- < 25kg/m(2) and 0.55 [95% CI, 0.40-0.75] vs current smoker). Factors associated with reduced all-cause mortality were regular physical activity (HR, 0.64 [95% CI, 0.52-0.79] vs inactive), BMI = 30kg/m(2) (HR, 0.64 [95% CI, 0.43-0.96] vs 20- < 25kg/m(2)), and nonsmoking (HR, 0.45 [95% CI, 0.34-0.60] vs current smoker). BMI < 20kg/m(2) was associated with increased all-cause mortality risk (HR, 2.11 [95% CI, 1.13-3.93] vs 20- < 25kg/m(2)). Adherence to all 4 lifestyle factors was associated with a 68% lower risk of all-cause mortality compared to adherence to no lifestyle factors (HR, 0.32; 95% CI, 0.11-0.89).
Lifestyle factors were measured only once.
Regular physical activity, nonsmoking, and BMI = 25kg/m(2) were associated with lower risk of adverse outcomes in this cohort of individuals with CKD.
