  1. Note: *The clinical measures in this table are from the annual patient follow-up as of October 31.
  2. ¥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.
  3. Calcium is corrected for albumin level. Results with ionized calcium are excluded.
  4. Albumin reagent is unknown.
