From: High neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio is a significant predictor of depressive symptoms in maintenance hemodialysis patients: a cross-sectional study

Item Model 1 Model 2
β (95% CI) P β (95% CI) P
NLR 0.252 (0.194–0.803) 0.001 0.246 (0.175–0.799) 0.002

  1. *Significant at p < 0.05
  2. Model 1: unadjusted
  3. Model 2: adjusted for age, sex, Kt/V, dialysis duration, history of kidney transplantation, history of hypertension, and Charlson comorbidity index score
