Background: Hemodialysis patients differ by the levels of negative effects on all their aspects of lives; their health care costs are high and physical, mental and social problems and fatigue, despite advances in treatment, still cause stress in these patients.

Objectives: This study aimed to determine the amount of fatigue in patients treated with hemodialysis.

Materials and Methods: This descriptive study was conducted on 105 patients in AJA selected hospitals in 2015. Data collection and demographic questionnaires were the tools and mental fatigue (MF-20) was the software. Data were statistically analyzed using SPSS version 21.

Results: The highest fatigue degrees were observed in women (P=0.53 and 10.57 ± 63.60), age group of “41 - 50” (P=0.24 and 12.05 ± 66.60), the ones with high school diploma (P=0.05 and 65.26 ± 11.09), the unemployed ones (P=0.84 and 63.61 ± 10.95), and one person with history of smocking (9.573±68.89, P=0.001).

Discussion and Conclusion: Unfortunately, monitoring fatigue in comparison with other symptoms is often neglected. Health care providers’ knowledge of how to determine the level, prevalence, risk factors, and complications of fatigue, as well as the strategies to reduce it and the training necessary to improve health and quality of care is essential.

Keywords: End Stage Renal Diseases, Fatigue, Hemodialysis.
