Introduction: Weight gain due to excess fluid in patients undergoing hemodialysis results in shortness of breath and heart failure. This study aimed to analyze the relationship between self-efficacy and control of interdialytic weight gains (IDWG) in chronic kidney failure patients undergoing hemodialysis. Methods: This research design was a descriptive correlation. The population of this study was 70 patients who underwent hemodialysis at the Surabaya Ahmad Yani Islamic Hospital. The sample size was 70 respondents who were taken using the total sampling technique. The variables in this study were self-efficacy and IDWG control in patients undergoing hemodialysis. The research instrument were used a questionnaire and an observation sheet. The data were analyzed using the Spearman rank test with a significance value of α=0.05. Results: A total of seventy respondents reported high self-efficacy (52,86%) and light IDWG control (57,15%). The Rank-Spearman test results showed there was a correlation between self-efficacy and IDWG control in patients undergoing hemodialysis (p=0.000). Conclusion: Monitoring fluid intake consumed by patients is very important to prevent weight gain which can affect the health status of patients undergoing hemodialysis.
