- •Higher eGFR even in the normal range is associated with lower incident CVD.
- •Whether this association is consistent across all ages and sexes is unknown.
- •Our findings are from a large population-based cohort without prior CVD.
- •An increase in eGFR in the normal range was associated with lower incident CVD.
- •This association was evident in both sexes and across all ages.
