Status includes those who respond or do not respond to each questionnaire, and reasons for withdrawal. “Withdrawal from study” includes patient choice, being discharged from the renal clinic to their GP, moving to a renal centre not involved in the EQUAL study, or receiving a transplant. “Patient not available for follow-up” indicates how long patients have been followed up upon reaching conclusion of traditional follow-up in 2017.
