Back Ground :Countless actors have hammed death by clutching their heart in imagined pain before collapsing ,yet this Bollywood over kill has had no effect on most Indians, who remain oblivious to the threat of cardiovascular disease (heart attack and stroke)till it comes knocking on their doors.
Material and method: The study is retrospective in nature and was conducted in a tertiary care hospital. The data was collected in a pre drawn and pre tested proforma between May 2003 and May 2004.
Variables: Age, gender, Nature of diet, Obesity, Family history, Smoking, Alcoholism etc.
Observations and Discussion: More than fifty percent patients were either normotensive or in pre hypertensive stage.18 % and 29 % were in hypertension stage-I, II and III. There were only five patients who gave history of hypertension running in their families.45 % were hypertensive obese out of these 67.85 % were suffering from Diabetes. 52.72 % smokers were found hypertensive.
Conclusion and Recommendations: Modifiable factors played an important role in causing hypertension along with some biological factors like obesity, diabetes etc. The impact of these factors can be minimized by changing their life style like spend at least 30 minutes in exercise every day, reduce their body weight etc.
