Cognitive functions in patients with chronic renal failure patients
Keywords:Cognitive functions, Chronic renal disease
Objective: The present study was undertaken to assess the cognitive functions in chronic renal failure patients. Methods: 30 Patients with chronic kidney disease with renal failure, and 30 healthy, age matched controls, including both males and females were included in the study. Cognitive functions were assessed by MMSE and spatial and verbal memory test. Results: MMSE scores, spatial and verbal memory scores were significantly impaired in patients with chronic renal disease. Conclusion: We have observed significant impaired cognitive functions in patients with chronic renal failure. Our study provides further support to earlier studies. We recommend clinicians to consider assessment of cognition as a prognostic factor in chronic renal failure patients.
