Aims: The quality of life (QoL) of patients with diabetes and in hemodialysis is affected by their nutritional status. We aimed to determine the correlation between QoL and nutritional status of patients in hemodialysis.
Methods: We conducted a study with people with diabetes and in hemodialysis. We used Kidney Disease and Quality of Life-Short form (KDQOL-SFTM) scale to evaluate QoL and the Subjective Global Assessment (SGA) questionnaire for nutritional evaluation.
Results: The studied patients, 71.43% were over 55 years old and 81% of participants were male. The domain of QoL must impaired were cognitive function (x¯=26.35, SD = 20.81) and interaction of social quality (x¯=19.32, SD = 17.24). The characteristics that most favorably impacted QoL were dialysis equipment support (x¯=83.93, SD = 20.59) and patient satisfaction (x¯=86.51, SD = 17.17). The undernourished patients were 56.6% (n = 14). There was a strong lineal relationship between the Physical and Mental Health Composite and nutritional status, Spearman rank (rho = 0.935, p = <0.001), (rho=0.926, p = <0.001) respectively.
Conclusion: There is a strong relationship between QoL and nutritional status, ensuring that a good nutritional status could positively influence QoL.
