from Jules: in speaking with author they did not have in the database information regarding whether patients had diabetes
That's the reason for our cautious interpretation stating that incomplete reversibility may reflect "progression of the underlying CKD (such as diabetic nephropathy), the effects of co-morbidities or concomitant medications, or an irreversible effect of TDF on kidney function".
