Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To investigate the prevalence and related risk factors of prehypertension in Hangzhou, Shaoxing,Jiaxing city, Zhejiang province.

METHODS:

3200 people were selected by stratified cluster random sampling method, and statistical methods including chi-square test, and logistic regression through SAS 9.0 were used.

RESULTS:

The prevalence of pre- hypertension was 45.9%, higher for males and urban population, with significant differences seen between males and female(49.0% vs. 48.0%, P < 0.05), urban and rural areas(59.31% vs. 44.15%, P < 0.05). Data from the multiple factor logistic analysis showed that risk factors of prehypertension would include: older age, types of profession, under low education level, being urban residents, overweight and obesity, hyper triglyceride, and family history of hypertension, with ORs and 95% CI as 0.99 (0.98-0.99), 1.28(1.07-1.28), 1.31(1.10-1.56), 1.50(1.11-2.02), 1.33(0.98-1.81), 1.60 (1.19-2.16)and 1.18(1.00-1.39), respectively.

CONCLUSION:

Prehypertension prevalence was found high in the studied district, especially in urban residents with low education level. Strategies including reduction on risk factors as obesity and hyper triglyceride through health education as well as lifestyle modification should be taken to hold back the increasing trend on prehypertension in Zhejiang.
