Abstract:
Coexistence for a long time of children and teenagers with chronic kidney disease is very difficult and affects their life in many ways. Patients need to change their lifestyle and adopt to medical treatment in order to prevent progress of their disease. The aim of this study was to explore experiences and perspectives of patients who have been diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease. Participants in the study were 12 children and teenagers of age 11-15 years diagnosed at University Hospital Centre “Mother Theresa” at Pediatric Nephrology-Dialyses department. Through a careful analysing process were identified 4 important themes. It is concluded that Chronic Kidney Disease has a huge impact on the patients’ life during the whole course of the disease. The way the chronic disease progresses in patients depends on the level of knowledge they have on the disease, psycho-social impact and healthy conversation.
