We thank Dr. Jafarizadeh Esfahani for his letter; I explain some items to his questions:

  1. The experimental group was educated by a face to face training and educational booklet for 3 sessions till the researchers confirmed their understanding by asking some questions from them about the booklet items.
  2. Some of the transplanted patients had better scores in QOL than other HD patients. Kidney transplantation was done for them, but it was rejected in 3 patients in experimental group and in 4 patients in other group. After rejection they must be undergo HD.
  3. Researchers used in 2 sample T-test for parametric variables to compare the results of QoL questionnaire in different categories of socio-demographic variables. But it is written by a mistake as chi square test. Please correct it if it is possible.
Regards and thank you for your attention,

Nader Aghakhani
