Poor quality of life may contribute to kidney disease patients’ health problems

A recent study conducted by researchers at the University of Illinois shows that a poor quality of life may contribute to health problems for patients with chronic kidney disease. The study linked low physical and mental health scores with increased risks of heart related issues. The study also determined that low physical and mental health scores caused the progression of chronic kidney disease. The study was performed by assessing 1,091 African-Americans with hypertensive chronic kidney disease. The findings of this study will help physicians better synthesize treatment for patients.
