Poor HRQOL is associated with shorter survival. There is a limited threshold to which dialysis dose and parameters management can improve HRQOL in ESRD patients. ESRD patients have a high burden of physical and emotional symptoms that were associated with impaired HRQOL. Materials and methods: A total of 200 patients attending nephrology department were subjected to prospective study for a period of 3 months in warangal region.
