our friends from Multan, Bahawalpur,Rahimyar Khan, Sukkur and Sahiwal provided info. Out of 295 ESRD patients, 39 were non-compliant (missed atleast 2 dialysis in last month). The reason they quoted were:
1. Cost of transport: 18
2. Behaviour of staff: 7

5. complications during dialysis: 2
we hope some one will do a large and properly designed study on this issue.
Thanks to Dr. Ameen, Arjumand, Shoaid
