Results: Initial analysis showed that mortality was associated with age, treatment modality-continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) or hemodialysis (hd)-and depression. When controlling for age, gender, depression, and treatment modality in a multiple regression analysis, transplantation (tx), gender and age was associated with lower mortality. However, levels of depression at the end of follow-up were strongly associated with quality of life. Conclusions: Depression was not associated with mortality of Patients with kidney disease when controlling for gender, age, and treatment: modality. Transplantation was the main factor associated with lower mortality. Depression was, however, a strong predictor of quality of life.
