Bincy Joshwa, Margaret L Campbell
As many as 70% to 97% of individuals with chronic kidney disease (CKD) report fatigue. Fatigue is one of the common, troubling symptoms that affects one's quality of life. This narrative review summarizes the evidence and gaps about the epidemiology, causative factors, and assessment of fatigue in individuals with CKD. Most studies are focused on the hemodialysis population, with very few focused on the peritoneal dialysis and transplant populations in which fatigue is also prevalent. Understanding fatigue and its correlates can help in assessing fatigue and in implementing interventions to alleviate fatigue...

This study measured the prevalence of depression in 39 patients on hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis in two urban outpatient facilities in the southeastern United States. Additionally, it evaluated the number of patients who sought and scheduled a mental health evaluation after screening and education. The prevalence of mild to severely depressed individuals among participants in this study was 36%, affirming previous findings of depressive symptoms in the ESRD population. Results suggest that patients with ESRD are at a higher risk for depression than the general population...

Emília Mácsai, István Kiss
The significance of peritoneal dialysis in kidney replacement therapy is expected to increase, so it is important to reconsider glucose exposure to minimize the adverse effects. The first step was to develop biocompatible modern PD solutions to reduce the local and systemic adverse effects of current conventional glucose-based ones. According to the limited clinical experience, there are no clear data on better clinical outcome. Besides this there is a suspected theoretical correlation between development of encapsulating peritoneal sclerosis and chronic local irritation of peritoneal surface by glucose...

BACKGROUND: In patients on conventional hemodialysis (HD), morbidity is high and quality of life is poor. Intensified HD programs have been developed to help overcome these shortcomings, , but very few pediatric dialysis centers have reported the implementation of such a HD program. METHODS: An online survey was sent to all 221 pediatric dialysis centers which participate in the International Pediatric Dialysis Network (IPDN). The aim of the survey was to assess the attitude of pediatric nephrologists towards intensified HD, the penetrance of intensified HD into their clinical practice and barriers to implementation...

INTRODUCTION: Modifiable hemodialysis treatment parameters may impact patient reported outcomes, including recovery time. Answers to the recovery question may predict the impact of treatment parameters on clinical outcomes and health related quality of life. However, the reliability of answers to the recovery question after consecutive and nonconsecutive dialysis treatments in diverse populations has not been established. OBJECTIVE: To assess the reliability of this instrument and to determine if recovery time was associated with modifiable dialysis parameters, we conducted a quality assurance project in which we asked, "How long did it take you to recover from your last dialysis session?" after consecutive and nonconsecutive treatments...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: The increase in the survival rate of patients with chronic renal failure due to substitution treatment prompts an investigation of their quality of life (QoL), a key measure to evaluate the outcomes of chronic disease treatment. To determine whether hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis provide a better QoL, a systematic meta-analysis was performed. METHODS: We searched through the database Cinahl, Medline, PubMed, Scopus and Proquest, including articles published from 2011 until June 2016...

Impaired cognitive functioning in patients with end-stage renal disease may reduce their capabilities to adhere to complex medical or dietary regimens and to fully participate in medical decisions. With decreasing renal function, cognitive abilities are likely to decline, with cognitive dysfunction improving after initiation of dialysis and even being generally reversible after successful renal transplantation. However, little is known about cognitive changes particularly regarding different treatment modalities...

Most people who make the transition to maintenance haemodialysis (HD) therapy are treated with a fixed dose of thrice-weekly HD (3HD/week) regimen without consideration of their residual kidney function (RKF). The RKF provides an effective and naturally continuous clearance of both small and middle molecules, plays a major role in metabolic homeostasis, nutritional status and cardiovascular health, and aids in fluid management. The RKF is associated with better patient survival and greater health-related quality of life...
