Background & Objective: Chronic renal failure (CRF) is an irreversible violation of renal function. The aim of this study was to determine the epidemiologic pattern of patients with this disease and related factors in hemodialysis patients of Shahid Ayatollah Ashrafi Esfahani Hospital in Tehran in 2017.
Methods: This retrospective cohort study was conducted on 359 patients referring to the hemodialysis department of Shahid Ayatollah Ashrafi Esfahani Hospital who had undergone continuous hemodialysis for at least three months. Information was gathered through the medical history contained in the patient records of the hemodialysis department, and, in cases where necessary, additional interviews were conducted. Data were analyzed by descriptive and inferential statistics using Stata software version 14.
Results: Of 359 patients in the study, 230 (64.07%) were male with mean and SD (58.04 ± 1.09), of which 49.86% were in the age range> 60 years old and only 3/90% of the patients were under the age of 30 years. 193 (53.76%) were illiterate and 233 (64.90%) were employed. Frequency (percentage of frequency) in terms of the most commonly known possible causes of the patients were respectively: hypertension 91 (25.35%), hypertension and diabetes combined 84 (23.40%) and diabetes 78 (21.73%). 106 (29.53%) patients, were diagnosed with other types of illnesses.
Conclusion: Considering the hypertension and diabetes as the main causes of chronic renal failure, using appropriate methods can prevent the occurrence of the two diseases; the course of these patients will prevent the end stages of renal disease and will work to increase their longevity.
