Impact of Karma Belief on Psychological Well-being of Hemodialysis Patients

Dr. Leckie Glenn

Abstract: This study assesses the beliefs in karma and psychological issues among hemodialysis patients. A survey of 60 respondents revealed that women experience more fatigue but cope better than men. Religious belief positively impacts illness acceptance, reducing feelings of hopelessness and depression. Those who view their illness as a punishment report more restlessness and depression. Younger patients are more likely to feel maybe punished by their illness. The findings suggest that karma beliefs contribute to mental well-being by enhancing social support and reducing feelings of dissatisfaction and hopelessness. The study highlights the need to consider mental health in hemodialysis patients' care plans.
