The data were analyzed using descripti ve and inferential statistical testes.

  Results : The results showed 41.7% of samples complained from sleep apnea and 57.6% of hemodialysis patients suffer from metabolic syndrome. There was statistically significant relationsh ip between sleep apnea and metabolic syndrome. (p=0.001)

  Conclusion : Considering the high prevalence of sleep apnea and metabolic syndrome in patients undergoing hemodialysis, it is suggested to use screening method for identifying patients with metabolic syndrome.
