A Binary Logistic Regression Analysis on the Factors Associated with High Blood Pressure and its Related Heart Issues


Augustine Kena Adjei*, Pascal Kingsley Kataboh, Faustina Asante and Enoch Boyetey

Hypertension is a major public health issue and an important research topic because of its great incidence and role as a key risk factor for cardiovascular disease and other consequences. The goal of this study is to determine the association between gender and blood pressure, as well as to determine which race suffers the most from high blood pressure among study participants. It may be concluded from the findings of this study that elderly persons have a larger risk of high blood pressure than younger people. High blood pressure is also more common in African Americans (AA) than in other races. Women are more likely than men to have high blood pressure, and smokers are more likely than non-smokers to have high blood pressure. Physical activity aids in the burning of calories, which aids in weight loss. As a result, thick and hefty persons have a larger risk of high blood pressure than small people. Obesity and advancing age have been shown to be independent risk factors for high blood pressure. Improvements to surveillance systems are required, as is the introduction of community-based screening programs for the early detection of high blood pressure. Because there was a lack of understanding of high blood pressure among high blood pressure patients, improving health literacy to raise awareness of high blood pressure is also a pressing necessity. Weight control improved physical activity, increased fruit and vegetable consumption, and smoking ban are all essential and suggested interventions.
