Introduction: Hypertension is a chronic disease that is the main concern especially in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic, where hypertension is a dangerous comorbid disease for people infected with the Covid-19 virus. Self-regulation is an important thing that hypertension sufferers must have to help control their blood pressure. Patients with hypertension who can regulate themselves will affect their acceptance of chronic diseases suffered. The purpose of this study was to analyze the relationship of self- regulation to self-acceptance of hypertension sufferers during the Covid-19 pandemic in Indonesia.

Method: The type of research is correlational with a cross-sectional research design. The sampling technique is probability sampling with a random sample size of 100 patients with hypertension in Indonesia. The research instrument was in the form of Self-Regulation and Self Acceptance Scale-Early Blindness (SAS-EB) questionnaires. Data analysis was performed with the Spearman Rank statistical test with a significant p <0.05.

Results: The results showed that almost half of respondents had high self- regulation (40%) and half of the respondents had a high level of self-acceptance (47%). Spearman Rank statistical test shows the result of p = 0,000 and the level of strength is very strong 0.795 and its value is positive.

Conclusion: There is a very strong relationship between self-regulation and self-acceptance of hypertension sufferers during the co-19 pandemic in Indonesia. It is expected that health workers play a role in providing health education about the treatment of hypertension especially during the co-19 pandemic, as well as increasing social support that can help hypertension sufferers in treating their diseases.
