Background & Aim: Malnutrition is a major problem in End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) patients undergoing hemodialysis and this may occur due to several factors such as inadequate nutritional intake, increase losses or and to an increase in protein catabolism. The aim of this study is to assess the relationship between nutritional status and Quality of Life (QoL) in ESRD patients undergoing hemodialysis. Methods: This is a multicenter cross sectional study that took place in 4 hemodialysis clinics in Jakarta from October to December 2016. Nutritional status was measured using Subjective Global Assessment (SGA) Questionnaire. Quality of life was measured using World Health Organization-Quality of Life (WHO-QOL) Questionnaire containing 4 domains related to physical health, psychological, social relationships and environmental. Analysis was done using One-way ANOVA or Kruskal-Wallis, depending on the distribution of the data. Results: There were a total of 116 patients. The mean age of the patients was 52.7 (25-84) years. There were 78 (67.2%) male. The mean BMI of the patients were 22.9 (14.1-32.6) kg/m2. 36 (31%) patients had BMI<18.5 kg/m2 and 25 (21.6%) patients had BMI>25 kg/m2. There were 48 (41.3%) patients classified as moderately malnourished and 11 (9.5%) of the patients classified as severely malnourished. There was significant association between level of nutritional status and physical health domain (p<0.001). The mean difference in physical health domain values between normal nutrition and severely malnourished is 18.9 (p<0.001). The other domains did not have any significant association with nutritional status. Conclusion: Malnutrition can lead to poorer physical health related quality of life. By improving the nutritional status of the patients, we can increase the QoL of the patients.
