,b>Objective: The aim of this study was to determine the frequency of fibromyalgia FM in patients on Peritoneal Dialysis PD and to investigate its impact on the quality of life of that population. Methods: A hundred and twenty four patients with end stage renal disease who had undergone PD, and a control group of 54 age and sex-matched healthy volunteers were included to the study. Demographic characteristics including age, sex, disease and dialysis duration were recorded. Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire FIQ and Nottingham Health Profile NHP were also measured. Results: The mean age of the patients 68 female, 56 male and control subjects 36 female, 18 male were 43.5 ± 13.4 and 41.2 ± 9.2 years respectively. The prevalence of FM in the PD patients and controls were determined as 9.7% 12 patients and 11.1% 6 controls respectively and were found to be similar p = 0.983. The mean score of sub- groups of NHP except pain and emotion subgroups, were significantly higher in PD patients than in the control group. The mean FIQ levels, the scores of all the subgroups of NHP except the social subgroup were significantly higher in PD patients with FM than in those without FM. Conclusion: In conclusion although the prevalence of FM appears to be similar in PD patients and control subjects, the functional disability is common and quality of life is worse in PD patients with FM than in patients without FM. Detection and treatment of FM may lead to improvement in the quality of life of PD patients with this syndrome.
