This chapter discusses old people who have ESRD. It defines the term ‘old’ as a person who has lived a long time and is no longer young. The chapter states that before the 1970s, dialysis treatment was only available to patients who were no older than fifty, but due to the increase in the number of older people who needed dialysis, this treatment was soon made available to those people as well. It discusses a number of factors, such as nutrition, frailty, depression, and cognitive function.

Keywords:   old, ESRD, dialysis treatment, patients, dialysis, nutrition, frailty, depression, cognitive function
