CRIC Scientific Discoveries

FGF23 elevation has been linked to greater risks of left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) and mortality in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), but whether these risks represent causal effects of FGF23 is unknown. Here, we report that elevated FGF23 levels are independently associated with prevalent and incident LVH among CRIC Study participants.
