Abstract

Introduction: Quality of life assessment represents the perceived impact of the disease and the consequent treatment on patient wellness. Objective: To describe the quality of life perceived by patients with end stage renal disease. Material and methods: This is a cross-sectional descriptive study on 30 adult patients in three different renal replacement therapies attending to a dialysis clinic located in Guanajuato state. SF-36 questionnaire was used to measure quality of life through eight different domains. PASW statistics 18 was used for statistical analysis. Results: In a 1 to 100 scale, the scores per domain were: physical function 37.6, physical role 35.8, pain 64.7, general health 58.5, vitality 59, social function 86.7, emotional role 68.9 and mental health 77.2.
