We commend O’Hare and colleagues1 on their recent article demonstrating an association of low ankle-brachial index (ABI) with a prospective rise in serum creatinine concentration in the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) study. In a cross-sectional analysis of exactly the same data set, our research group also found a significant association of low ABI with kidney disease.2
