   Hemodialysis Top


There are 177 dialysis centers in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia having 4,481 machines catering to 11,437 patients. The ministry of health offers the largest percentage of these facilities with contributions made by the NON-MOH government sector as well as the private sector. The age distribution of dialysis population showed that the majority of patients are in the age group, 56 to 65 years. About 7% of the dialysis patients are older than 75 years while only 1.9% of them are less than 15 years.

Hepatitis B seems to be in good control (4.1%) while hepatitis C continues to be a major problem (24.5% positivity) among dialysis patients. Of the 11,437 patients on dialysis, about 22.3% are in the active waiting list for transplantation with another 20% being evaluated for possible inclusion in the waiting list. It is worth mentioning that 61.5% of the hemodialysis patients are hypertensive, while 42.6% are diabetes.
