Abstract

Arterial hypertension is the leading mortality risk factor. The aim of the study was to assess the rate of asymptomatic hypertension detected in a randomly selected population sample in Posusje Municipality according to the grade of hypertension (mild, moderate or severe) and risk factors. The following risk factors were analyzed: intake of saturated fatty acids, alcohol, tobacco products and black coffee. Asymptomatic hypertension was detected in 532 of 2000 (26.60%) subjects included in the study. In comparison to the rest of the study sample, these 532 subjects reported a statistically significantly higher consumption of saturated fatty acids, alcohol, tobacco products and black coffee.
