Abstract

According to the annual survey of the Japanese Society for Dialysis Therapy Renal Data Registry (JRDR) conducted at the end of 2018, there were a total of 339,841 patients receiving dialysis (hereinafter, dialysis patients) in Japan. The survey included questions regarding the presence/absence of dementia, the performance status (PS), and the exercise habits of individual patients. The survey revealed that 10.8% of all dialysis patients had dementia (1.8% in the age group of less than 65 years, 6.8% in the age group of 65–74 years, and 22.7% in the age group of 75 years or older). These prevalences of dementia were approximately equal to those estimated from the survey conducted in 2010. Regarding PS, the percentage of patients with lower activity levels tended to be relatively high among patients who were less than 15 years old and those who were 60 years old or older. Concerning the exercise habits of dialysis patients, the percentage of patients who were classified as “not at all or hardly” in response to the question about exercise habit was the highest (60–80%) of all the exercise habit classifications in each of the age groups analyzed.
