Abstract: Background: Chronic renal disease is a major health issue in various regions of the world. The number of cases of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) is rising in both developed and developing countries, greatly expanding the need for chronic dialysis and renal transplantation. Lifestyle modifications regarding lifestyle factors, specifically diet and exercise behaviors, can delay the progression of chronic kidney disease. Materials and Methods: A quantitative research approach with a pre-experimental research design was used to learn about the lifestyle of renal failure patients receiving hemodialysis at Apollo Hospitals in Visakhapatnam. The convenient sampling technique was used to select 60 patients with renal failure after transplantation. Data were collected using a pre-tested knowledge questionnaire. The data was analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. Results: The self-instructional module was found to be effective in increasing knowledge regarding the lifestyle of renal failure patients undergoing hemodialysis. The calculated "t" value for knowledge (17.1) is higher than the table value (2.66) at the 0.05 level of significance. Conclusion: The study revealed that lifestyle is more effective in improving the quality of life of renal failure patients undergoing hemodialysis. Patients with renal failure must maintain a healthy lifestyle. All nurses who are involved in caring for renal failure patients at dialysis units should encourage and educate the patients to change their lifestyles for improved quality of life.
