Aim: Studying the gender and age structure of chronic kidney disease (CKD ) 5D patients in Uzbekistan.

Background: Uzbekistan is a country in Central Asia with a population of over 34 million. Nearly 100,000 people suffer from CKD. About 3000 patients receive hemodialysis on a regular basis. These numbers tend to increase in the coming years

Methods: 165 patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD), were analyzed: 90 men and 75 women aged 18 to 78 years. All patients received programmed hemodialysis in the hemodialysis departments of the Republican Specialized Scientific and Practical Medical Center for Nephrology and Kidney Transplantation. The duration of hemodialysis was 6-58 months. The patients were divided into 5 age groups: 18-44 years (young age), 45-59 years (average age), 60-74 years (old age), 75-90 years (old age) and over 90 years old (long-livers).

Results:54.5% of all surveyed were women, 45.5% were men. Almost 99% (n=57) of all examined were patients under 60 years of age. Among young patients, 64 patients were identified: 35 men and 29 women. The structure of middle age (n=66) was dominated by men: 39 men and 27 women. Elderly age was represented by 33 patients, including 16 men and 17 women. Among the surveyed there was only 2 women aged 75-90 years and not a single man. The analysis did not reveal the patient’s long-liver.

Conclusion: In the age structure of ESRD, young and middle-aged patients prevail (98,8%). There is a gender difference depending on the age group. A sharp decrease in the number of patients in age groups over 75 years old, both male and female, was revealed.
