Objective: To analyze the factors related to fluid adherence among hemodialysis (HD) patients in a hospital in Malang. Methods: The study used a cross-sectional design with a consecutive sampling technique. The sample comprised 98 respondents. The study was conducted in the HD Unit May 23–26, 2018. The data were collected by use of the characteristics of the respondent questionnaire, personality questionnaire, health locus of control questionnaire, family support questionnaire, and fluid adherence questionnaire. The Pearson correlation coefficient and the Spearman's rank correlation coefficient were calculated, and multivariate linear regression analysis was performed. Results: The results showed that the factors related to fluid adherence were age (p = 0.001), complications (p = 0.017), agreeableness (p = 0.013), and family support (p = 0.001). The results of the multivariate analysis showed that the most dominant factor influencing fluid adherence was age (r = 0.255). Conclusion: The results indicated that appropriate health education that involves the family was an important component in improving fluid adherence.
