Background and Aim: According to the recorded data on the Health Ministry database, a better understanding of clinical and epidemiological factors associated with ESRD can be helpful for decision making about the treatment and preventive interventions with the aim of public health promotion and development of health programs. This study aimed to evaluate the prevalence of ESRD and dialysis-related factors from 2000 to 2009.

 

Material and methods: In this cross sectional study, data were obtained from specific diseases office of the Ministry of Health and Medical Education of the Islamic Republic of Iran from 2000 to 2009. There was no limitation on patient entry. Finally data were analyzed using SPSS software.

 

Results: This study included 12797 patients (57.07% male and 42.57% female) from 2000 to 2009. The overall incidence of ESRD in men (compared to the gender distribution in the normal population) with a mean age of 58.8 (SD = 17.61) was higher in comparison to women. The most common etiologies were diabetes (25.5%), and hypertension (23.3%) respectively. There were no significant changes in diabetes and hypertension frequencies in the patients between 2000 and 2009. No significant relationship was found between blood groups and ESRD. Prevalence of anemia was higher in the women with ESRD and hemoglobin levels were directly correlated with educational status (P <0.001).

 

Conclusion: The incidence of ESRD has been on the increase during this study.  Also we found a decrease in the middle and an increase at the end of the study in the prevalence of HIV which calls for further assessments.
