  1. Notes: *The clinical measures reported in this table are from the annual patient follow-up as of October 31.
  2. **Rows may be considered approximate clinical targets.
  3. Kt/V is based on URR; For HD, Kt/V is an estimation, based on the urea reduction ratio. For PD, the total weekly Kt/V (residual renal + PD) is reported.
  4. For descriptive purposes, test values are divided into high, medium, and low.
