Evaluation of Associated factors in Chronic Kidney Disease in Patients with Renal problems
Objective: The main objective of this study was to evaluate the associated factors in chronic kidney disease in patients with renal problems.
Type of Study: Cross Sectional.
Place and Duration of Study: This study was carried out in a duration of 10 months form February 2019 to November 2019 in Services Hospital Lahore.
Materials and Methods: A total of 200 patients were selected for the study who were willing to take part in it. The patients visiting the outdoor department of Nephrology or were admitted in ward were seen. Proper sampling technique was used to select the patient. A carefully designed proforma was used to collect the data by interview method and also by secondary data.
Results: A total of 200 patients were selected from medical wards, OPD, kidney transplant OPD and dialysis center. Mean age of the patients was 43.95 years. Evaluation of demographic data shows following results regarding age, marital status, sex and educational status.Conclusion: The stage 5 or end stage renal disease associated with high morbidity and mortality can be prevented by controlling high blood pressure which can lead to end stage renal disease. The results obtained by this study would have been more accurate if current level of creatinine would have been used. Furthermore, patients were unable to fill some of the questions which affected the results of this study.
