Abstract:
Sleep and fatigue difficulties appear to be highly prevalent among individuals with end stage renal disease and individuals who have received a kidney transplant. While there is some evidence of biopsychosocial factors predicting sleep disturbance in these populations, previous studies have relied on single time point retrospective measurements. Utilizing a prospective longitudinal measurement approach, the current study demonstrates that a number of psychological and behavioral factors, including negative mood, quality of life, napping, and caffeine consumption, are related to sleep disturbance among both pre- and post-kidney transplant patients at the average and daily level. These results suggest that such factors may be worthwhile areas for intervention in treating the symptoms of insomnia among pre- and post-transplant recipients.
