Abstract

Hyperuricemia is a condition in which there is an increase in blood uric acid level above normal. Some studies have shown more than 70% of hyperuricemia sufferers are obese and have a family history of hyperuricemia. This study aimed to determine the relationship between obesity and family history and blood uric acid levels in patients aged above 30 years with hyperuricemia at Bangli General Hospital, Bali, Indonesia. This study was an analytic study with cross-sectional design. The study samples were 77 people selected by simple random sampling. Secondary data was taken from the patients’ medical records at Bangli General Hospital. Levels of blood uric acid were measured using auto check GCU, obesity was measured based on body mass index using microtoise tools to measure height and weight, while family history was obtained by interviews. The data were analyzed using bivariate analysis with Chi-square test (α=0,05). Results of obesity measurement showed that more of the study subjects had obesity (49 persons or 63,6%) and more (46 persons or 59,7%) had family history. The study results showed that there was no relation between obesity and blood uric acid level (p=0,060) while there was relation between family history and blood uric acid level (p=0,006).
