Abstract

Background: Uric acid is a crystalline acid that is the end product of purine metabolism (a nucleoprotein derived form). Purines are the result of protein metabolism that can form uric acid crystals and can accumulate in the joints of the hands and kidneys / urinary tract. How to care for uric acid is to consume soursop juice a lot of vitamin C. Research Objectives: To determine the effect of soursop juice consumption on uric acid levels in the elderly age. Research Methods: This study is a quasi-experiment with a pre-post design group design design with a quantitative approach. Sampling technique is total sampling that is all elderly who suffering from uric acid which amounts to 15 population. Results. The mean uric acid levels before the action were 8,540 minimum levels of 6.2 and maximum 13.0 with standard deviation of 1.8631, Confidence interval 7,508-9,572 and average uric acid levels after action were 6,380 minimum levels of 5.0 and maximum of 8.7 with standard deviation of 1,359, Confirmation Interval 5,751-7,009. Conclusion: Based on statistical test with Tair Paired Samples Test showed the influence of Soursop Juice Consume Against Uric Acid Level in Elderly (p value 0.000).
