Kidney Disease & Mental Health

Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) can affect how patients think and feel, and trigger stress that can intensify over time. Having CKD can affect many areas of a patient’s life: relationships, work, finances, and spiritual beliefs. The added burden of depression and mental anxiety to a CKD patients’ health status contributes to poor mental health, exacerbated physical symptoms, and overall diminished quality of life.
