Abstract

[Extract]

• High levels of fatigue are experienced by people with CKD regardless of whether they are pre-dialysis or receiving haemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis.

• Regardless of the length of time on RRT (even as little as 1 month) people experience high fatigue and low activity levels.

• Fatigue influences their ability to engage in daily activities including independent exercise.
