Resumen

TERAZON MICLIN, Oneida; RAGOLTA MOGRAVE, Katiuska  y  LABORI RUIZ, Rafael. Modification to some risk factors in patients with hypertension in the community. MEDISAN [online]. 2009, vol.13, n.6. ISSN 1029-3019.

A community intervention was conducted during a triennium (2000-2002) to modify some risk factors for hypertension in 135 patients over the age of 15, attended in the No 28 doctor’s office of “Dr. Carlos J. Finlay” Polyclinic in Santiago de Cuba. From them 100 gave their consent to participate in the study. Female sex, age of 60 years and over, as well as medical family histories of hypertension prevailed in the case material. Excessive salt in foods, cooking with lard, stress for daily living situations and no taking physical exercises were modified favorably, except smoking habit and alcohol consumption. At first, the third of the patients were not controlled, but that situation varied significantly at the end of the intervention, when most of the risk factors had been eliminated.
