AB  - OBJECTIVES: The primary objectives of this study were to: 1) establish walking
      and physical activity prevalence and sedentary time estimates; and 2) determine
      associations of health-related quality of life (HRQoL) with objectively assessed 
      walking, self-reported physical activity, and sedentary time among kidney
      transplant recipients. METHODS: Using a cross-sectional design, kidney transplant
      recipients received a survey package containing measures of sedentary time,
      moderate-to-vigorous physical activity, and HRQoL, and a step pedometer. RESULTS:
      Thirty-two participants returned a completed survey, for a response rate of 82%
      (32 of 39 interested participants). The average steps per day were 9752 steps (SD
      = 3685) and 59% achieved public health guidelines of at least 150 minutes of
      moderate-to-vigorous physical activity per week. Total sedentary time during the 
      week was 11.6 h/d whereas total sedentary time during the weekend was 8.9 h/d.
      Compared to those not achieving at least 10,000 steps/d, respondents who were
      achieving at least 10,000 steps/d had a significantly higher physical component
      score for HRQoL (Mdiff = 7.8, P = .018). Similar patterns emerged for meeting
      physical activity guidelines and sedentary time. CONCLUSION: For kidney
      transplant recipients, greater participation in walking, overall physical
      activity, and lower engagement in sedentary activity, was associated with better 
      HRQoL.
