TEKS LENGKAP
2017 MAR 25 (NewsRx) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Obesity, Fitness &Wellness Week -- Data
detailed on Cardiovascular Diseases and Conditions - Hypertension have been presented. According to news
reporting from Brisbane, Australia, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Hypertension is the major driver of the
cardiovascular epidemic facing Indonesia in the 21st century. Understanding the socioeconomic inequalities
associated with hypertension is essential for designing effective intervention strategies."
The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from the University of Queensland, "The aim of the
current study was to use sub-nationally representative survey data to examine socio-demographic inequalities in
the prevalence, diagnosis and management of hypertension in Indonesian adults. We investigated factors
associated with hypertension prevalence, diagnosis, treatment and control using data on self-reported diagnosis
and treatment, and blood pressure measurements, collected from 9755 respondents aged 40 years and up in the
2007 Indonesian Family Life Survey (IFLS 4). Age-standardized prevalence of hypertension among the study
participants was 47.8% (95% CI: 46.8, 48.9), of which almost 70% were undiagnosed. Hypertension was
significantly higher in women than men (52.3% versus 43.1%, p-value <0.001). Prevalence of hypertension
increased significantly with ageing (Pfor trend <0.001). Over 91% (men: 92.1%, women: 90.0%) of hypertension
cases were uncontrolled. Gender, education and socioeconomic status had differential impact on the diagnosis of
hypertension and in receiving treatment. Overall, less than a third were aware of their hypertension and a quarter of
those on medication had their blood pressure effectively controlled. Men and those of younger age were more
vulnerable to have undiagnosed and untreated hypertension."
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Substantial effort should be given to improve awareness
about the condition and making provision for early diagnosis and treatment."
