Abstract

Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is a failure of kidney function to maintain metabolism, fluid and electrolyte balance due to progressive damage of kidney structure with manifestations of accumulation of metabolites. The impact of CKD on the integumentary system includes itching almost all over the body, dry skin, discoloration, etc. Dry skin conditions (xerosis cutis) resulting from the deposit of metabolites in skin tissue coupled with diuretic therapy that can reduce the skin’s moisture level in CKD patients, this condition often becomes a complaint that gets worse as the disease progresses. Objective: This study aimed to determine the description of skin moisture in CKD patients in the Hemodialysis Unit ofdr. Soekardjo Hospital Tasikmalaya. Method:This research is a descriptive study. The number of respondents in this study were 90 people. The instrument used a skin moistmeter. Results: The results showed that the facial skin moisture of the majority CKD patients (71.1%) was categorized as Very Dry, the skin moisture of the hands of the majority CKD patients (62.2%) was categorized as Very Dry, and the skin moisture from the feet of the majority CKD patients (74.4%) categorized as Very dry. Conclusion: Based on these results it is expected that CKD patients can maintain their skin’s moisture level better by using lotions, moisturizers, natural oils, or others so that patients can avoid complications that can damage the integrity of the skin due to dryness and itching.
