Gout is one of degenerative diseases that occur due to elevated levels of uric acid in the blood limit of uric acid saturation in Serum in males is 7.0 Mg/Dl and in females, 5.7 Mg/Dl hyperuricemia occurs when a Have uric acid levels exceeding the saturation limit of the uric acid levels Types of research using quantitative methods, with a Cross-Sectional approach (cut latitude) This goal with a view to knowing whether there is a relationship between levels of knowledge (independent variables) with the disease in patients with Arthritis Gout (Dependent variables) that are in observation of variable measurements once with at once at the same time or time Approach points. Samples are partially taken from the entire object being examined and considered to have an entire population. Samples in this study were patients with Gout Arthritis 65 people. Analysis Results of statistical test (SPSS) by using the Chi-Square test It is known that the value (P = 0.00 < Sig 0.5) can then be concluded that the level of knowledge of disease in patients is treated. Based on research has shown that there is a relationship between the level of disease knowledge in patients with Gout Arthritis. Recommended in patients with uric acid in order to avoid foods and living patterns that are not good so avoid Gout Arthritis disease. Key words: Knowledge Level, Gout Arthritis.
