Figure 1.
Figure 1. The changes in (a) hematocrit and (b) estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) at 1, 2, 3 and 6 months after the start of sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitor (SGLT2i). This figure shows the graphed results of our previous study [4]. PreSGLT2i indicates before the start of SGLT2i. Boxes and bars indicate mean and SD.
