AIM: We examined whether chronic kidney disease (CKD) modifies the frequency of heart failure hospitalisation (HHF) relative to atherosclerotic major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE; composite of cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction [MI], or stroke) in people with type 2 diabetes. METHODS: Of 16 cardiovascular outcomes trials in type 2 diabetes since 2013, seven reported outcomes stratified by estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) category (<60 vs. ≥60 mL/min/1.73 m2), and five by albuminuria status. Placebo-arm incidence rates of HHF, MACE, MI and stroke were extracted for each eGFR and albuminuria subgroup. RESULTS: CKD coincided with higher rates of all events, but the gr..
