Abstract According to National Kidney and Transplant Institute (NKTI) kidney diseases, End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) is the 7th leading cause of death in the country in 2014. The Department of Health states that approximately 23,000 Filipinos underwent dialysis due to kidney failure in 2013, nearly four times higher than the 4,000 cases recorded in 2004 (Dela Cruz, R 2014). Thus, compliance with fluid and dietary instructions is a critically significant factor in the health and well-being of hemodialysis patients; animus manendi or intent to stay with the treatment is critical (Brunner, 2012). This study aimed to analyze the factors affecting compliance with dietary and fluid restrictions among 35 hemodialysis patients in selected hospitals in Iligan City. This research used descriptive-correlational-comparative research design, purposive sampling method, and modified questionnaire based on End Stage Renal Disease Adherence Questionnaire (ESRD-AQ) to assess their compliance with dietary and fluid restrictions. Using Pearson Correlational Coefficient, results revealed that marital status has a strong direct relationship (r: 0.20 ), educational attainment has a strong inverse relationship (r: -0.20) as well as length of hemodialysis treatment (-0.21) with the respondents’ compliance to dietary and fluid restrictions. Hence, the study elucidated that respondents’ demographic profile significantly affected their level of compliance with dietary and fluid requirements, highlighted the importance of marital support, and especially among patients with increased educational attainment. In order to provide safe and quality care, this information could be integrated in planning care for hemodialysis patients, both in the academe and clinical level.
