MANAGEMENT OF HYPERURICEMIA WITH ERGONOMIC EXERCISE
Hyperuricemia has been increased because of the lifestyle change. Hyperuricemic metabolism will produce highly purine rate called uric acid. Exercise will reduce that highly purine rate. Ergonomic gym exercise will also reduce blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, and will give comfortable of sleep. The purpose of this research was to learn the significance between ergonomic exercise and uric acid rate on client with hyperurisemic. The study was pre experiment with One Group Pretest Posttest design. The sample was hyperuricemia elderly client in posyandu lansia which fulfill the inclusion criteria. The respondents ergonomic exercise in every day for two weeks and uric acid rate was measured before and after research. The data was served in the frequency-distribution table and analysed with normality test using Kolmogorov-Smirnov and Paired Sample T-test with significancy α ≤ 0,05. The results shown that the urid acid level was decrease (uric acid mean and standart deviation for pretest 7,06 ± 0,85 and post test 3,94±1,84). Paired sample T-test analysis found different significant value (p=0,000). Ergonomic exercise can be one of intervention to decrease uric acid rate for hiperuricemia.
