This article is from PLoS ONE, volume 9.AbstractBackground: Quality of life QoL impairment is a well-known consequence of chronic kidney disease CKD. The factors influencing QoL and late life functional health are poorly examined. Methods: Using questionnaires combined with neuropsychological examinations, we prospectively evaluated physical, cognitive, and emotional factors influencing QoL, functional health and participation in community dwelling in 119 patients with CKD stages 3–5 including hemodialysis 61.5±15.7years; 63% men and 54 control patients of the same age without CKD but with similar cardiovascular risk profile. Results: Compared with control patients, CKD patients showed impairment of the physical component of QoL and overall function, assessed by the SF-36 and LLFDI, whereas disability, assessed by LLFDI, was selectively impaired in CKD patients on hemodialysis. Multivariable linear regressions forced entry confirmed earlier findings that CKD stage β = −0.24; p = 0.012 and depression β = −0.30; p = 0.009 predicted the QoL physical component. Hitherto unknown, CKD stage β = −0.23; p = 0.007, cognition β = 0.20; p = 0.018, and depression β = −0.51;
