Abstract:   (4914 Views)
Objective (s): To measure quality of life in hemodialysis patients.
Methods: This was a cross-sectional study carried out in two centers in Kerman. Quality of life was measured using the Iranian version of the SF-36.
Results: In all 100 patients with end stage renal disease receiving hemodialysis were studied. The mean age of patients was 50.91 (SD=l4.76) years and the mean time of dialysis for patients was 31.76 (SD=37.33) months. The most cause of renal failure was diabetes mellitus and the most comorbidity was heart disease. In all domains of the SF-36, it was found that patients reported lower scores than healthy individuals. The lowest score was found for General Health.
Conclusion: These results show that hemodialysis patients suffer from a poor quality of life and this suggests that these patients need more effective management.
