  • Normally distributed data are presented as mean value (±sd), and non-normally distributed data are presented as median (min–max). All parameters were compared with the Mann-Whitney test or unpaired t test. 

  • *P<0.05 was considered significant.

  • AKI, acute kidney injury; uGGT, urinary γ-glutamyl transpeptidase; uGGT/uc, urinary γ-glutamyl transpeptidase to urinary creatinine; UPC, urine protein creatinine ratio; USG, urine-specific gravity.
