    Aim: This study aimed to evaluate the symptoms, changes in laboratory findings during the COVID-19 pandemic, and the effect of depression MESHD on symptoms associated with end-stage kidney disease MESHD in patients with peritoneal dialysis (PD).Methods: This was an observational and cross-sectional study. The patients underwent three different PD modalities, including continuous ambulatory PD, automated peritoneal dialysis, and remote monitoring automated peritoneal dialysis (RM-APD). All patients were asked to complete the clinical assessment form and Beck depression MESHD and anxiety HP anxiety MESHD inventory. Additionally, the last two laboratory evaluations during this period were examined.Results: A total of 123 patients undergoing PD were included. None of the patients were diagnosed with COVID-19 infection MESHD. Serum SERO ferritin, creatinine, phosphorus, albumin and parathyroid hormone levels were significantly elevated in the total study population (p=0.03, p=0.01, p=0.02, p=0.02 and p=0.05, respectively). While calcium, phosphorus, and parathyroid hormone tended to increase in patients with APD or CAPD, they remained stable in patients performing RM-APD. Most of the patients did not experience dyspnea HP dyspnea MESHD, pitting edema MESHD edema HP, difficulty in blood SERO pressure control, palpitation HP, bone muscle pain MESHD pain HP, or peritonitis HP peritonitis MESHD. Moderate to severe depression MESHD was associated with dyspnea HP dyspnea MESHD, weight gain MESHD, fatigue HP fatigue MESHD, palpitation HP, and increased anxiety HP anxiety MESHD.Conclusion: PD is a reliable and successful form of dialysis and can be safely administered even if hospital access is restricted. PD is a safe method of renal replacement therapy to protect patients from COVID-19 infection MESHD. Additionally, RM-APD may be a better choice because it provides more stable bone mineral metabolism. Moreover, evaluating depression MESHD and anxiety HP anxiety MESHD at phone visits may be necessary for accurate clinical assessment.
