  Background Top


Good nutrition status is a vital predictor of morbidity and mortality in dialysis patients. However, as dialysis patients are challenged with several triggers of stress, hence compliance toward diet regimen is may be below optimal.


  Aim Top


The main aim of this study was to assess the contribution of various types of stress toward dietary noncompliance.


  Methods Top


A short questionnaire containing nine questions was created to assess the contribution of various types of stress such as physiological stress, financial stress, and emotional stress toward dietary noncompliance. This contribution was interviewed based on their percentage and was scored as follows – 0%–25% stress: 0 score; 25%–50% stress: 1 score; 50%–75% stress: 2 score: 75%–100% stress: 3 score. In all, 292 patients across five centers of Apex Kidney Care were interviewed.


  Results Top


Of 411 patients, 238 were males and 173 were females. Each patient was personally interviewed on bedside. The results of this study are summarized in [Figure 1].
