Abstract
Background: Chronic hypertension can impact on decreased kidney function. Hypertension, accompanied by stress, increases the risk of kidney failure. The risk of damaged kidney function in hypertensive patients can be seen from the albumin creatinine ratio. This study aims to determine the correlation between stress level and albumin creatinine ratio among hypertensive patients in the Baros District Work Area. Methods: This quantitative research employed cross sectional study design with technique of sample selection was total sampling with a sample size of 46 people. The instruments used were a stress level questionnaire and an observational sheet to record blood pressure, and albumin creatinine ratio, which was measured by Rapid Test Complete Urine Test Strips. Results: The results showed that 52.4% of respondents with a mild stress level were at risk of experiencing chronic kidney failure. From the results of statistical tests, it was found that there was a significant correlation between stress levels and albumin creatinine ratio (p value = 0.002), where higher stress level, can impact to higher albumin creatinine ratio (correlation coefficient 0.406). Conclusions: controlling stress levels in hypertensive patients can be done to help reduce the risk of kidney failure.
