N. Haryati, Irwan Saputra, Maimun Syukri


Abstract: Diabetes Mellitus is a non - infectious disease that experiences an increase each year. Uncontrolled Diabetes Mellitus will cause diabetic neuropathy complications. Various researches have explained a different result regarding diabetic neuropathy. The aim of this research is to analyze the relationship between age, gender, period of disease, medication adherence, diet, obesity, physical activities, history of hypertension and history of smoking with the incidence of diabetic neuropathy and analyzing the dominant factors in the incidence of diabetic neuropathy in community health centers in Indonesia. The method of this research was the cross sectional design. As much as 92 respondents participated. The consecutive sampling technique was applied. Independent variables of age, gender, period of disease, medication adherence, diet, obesity, physical activities, history of hypertension and history of smoking were measured by using the Diabetic Neuropathy Symptom (DNS) score. Bivariate analysis with the chi - square correlation test and Fisher?s Exact Test were used, and also multivariate analysis with logistic regression test. The results of this research showed that there is a relationship between age (p = 0, 001; OR = 18, 33), period of disease (p = 0, 004; OR = 9, 120), regular medication (p = 0, 004; OR = 8, 296), diet (p = 0, 018; OR = 5, 333), obesity (p = 0, 022; OR = 4, 974), physical activities (p = 0, 006; OR = 7, 2333), and history of hypertension (p = 0, 010; OR = 6, 365) with diabetic neuropathy. The most dominant factor is physical activities (p = 0, 020; OR = 8, 445, 95% CI = 1, 394 < OR < 51, 170). This research concluded that the most influential factors towards diabetic neuropathy were age, period of disease, medication adherence, diet, obesity, physical activities and history of hypertension.
