The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between serum albumin and indicators of quality of life in patients with End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD). The relationship between quality of life variables, i.e. activity limitations, emotional problems, pain, energy, sexual activity, sleep, and satisfaction of care and level of serum albumin was investigated. The nutritional status using the subjective global assessment (SGA) was obtained. This study is based on the assumption that there are multiple factors that affect the quality of life of ESRD patients, placing them in Roy’s adaptation model. The scientific assumptions of this model include: the person is a bio-psycho-social being and in constant interaction with a changing environment; and to cope with a changing world the person uses innate and acquired mechanisms. The subjects were receiving dialysis treatment. They were mostly Caucasian (70%) and Native American (26%). Ages range from 19-91 years with a majority between 23-65 years. Approximately 54% were male with 44% being female. The unit dialyzes 80% of patients by hemodialysis and 20% by peritoneal dialysis. The first phase consisted of a retrospective chart review. The following data was obtained: Kidney Disease Quality of Life items, blood studies (serum albumin, blood urea nitrogen, creatinine, sodium, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium), SGA, and demographics (age, sex, race, education, marital and employment status, health insurance, income, prescription medications, hospital admissions and cause of kidney disease). During the second phase investigators approached each patient. After consent was obtained, the KDQOL instrument and demographic form were given and assistance provided if necessary. The SGA was obtained. Blood studies were drawn monthly. Data were collected from two dialysis units maintained by the hospital. The scores on the KDQOL, blood studies, and SGA are described. Appropriate correlations are being done on study variables.
