Explore Dialysis Fatigue Solutions on the Global Kidney Care Podcast: Insights From the Cochrane Review

Listen to the podcast here

The Cochrane Review, published in 2023, includes data on 94 randomized controlled trials with over 8,000 participants. It addresses the uncertainty in clinical practice guidelines on managing fatigue in people with chronic kidney disease or kidney failure requiring dialysis. It summarizes the benefits and harms of pharmacological and nonpharmacological interventions evaluated for their impact on this group.

Tune in to hear from host Dr. Edmund Chung in conversation with the Cochrane review’s first author, Dr. Patricia Natale, a research fellow at the University of Sydney, Australia, a senior lecturer at the University of Foggia in Italy, and an expert in quantitative and qualitative nephrology studies. She discusses the findings of this review, which suggest that exercise, aromatherapy, massage, and acupressure may improve fatigue compared to placebo or standard care.
