EVALUATING THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN HYPERTENSION AND BLOOD GLUCOSE LEVEL- A DESCRIPTIVE CORRELATIONAL STUDY.
Keywords:HYPERTENSION, BLOOD GLUCOSE LEVEL.
Hyperglycemia is a condition where the body experiences an increase in blood glucose levels and insulin can’t be used appropriately. Patients with diabetes mellitus experience hyperglycemia where there is an increased level of angiotensin hormone which can cause hypertension. The main approach of this study is to correlate the association of blood glucose levels with hypertension.
Materials and methods:
The type of this study was descriptive correlation. A total of 210 subjects were selected for this study of which only 166 samples were the responders and a Random sampling technique was used to analyze the subjects. The level of blood glucose was examined with semi-automated analyzer and a sphygmomanometer was used for blood pressure analysis.
The obtained data were integrated with “The Pearson correlation test”. Of the total population included in this study, females were the responders and most of the responders had “Diabetes mellitus”.
Samples with high levels of blood glucose had a great risk of high blood pressure. The level of Blood glucose is interrelated with the level of blood pressure in individuals with the condition of hypertension.
It is recommended for aged people to always maintain their blood glucose level to lower their risk of cardiovascular diseases including hypertension.
