As hypertension is the most common modifiable risk factor for cardiovascular events, it is imperative that, even during dis�ruptions in care, hypertension control remains a priority. It is necessary to the deter�mi�nants of high blood pressure as an input for prevention. This study aimed to determine the determinants of high blood pressure in women during COVID-19 pandemic.
Subjects and Method: This was a cross-sectional study conducted in Bogor, West Java, from September to Desember 2021. Sample were all women aged 20-59 years involved in a cohort study of children growth and development. The dependent variable was high blood pressure (pre-hypertension and hypertension). The independent variables in this stud are consumption habit, mental-emotional, age, middle upper arm circumference (MUAC), weight gain, and education. The dependent variable was high blood pressure (pre-hypertension and hypertension). Data of the other variables were collected by questionnaire. The data were analyzed using multiple logistic regression.
Results: The risk of high blood pressure (pre-hypertension and hypertension) increased with aged \u226535 years (aOR=2.04; p=0.016), MUAC \u226528 cm (aOR=4.23; p <0.001), weight gain \u2265 10kg (aOR=5.14; p=0.025), and education \u2265 senior high school (aOR=1.94; p=0.032) and its statistically significant.
Conclusion: The risk of high blood pressure icreased with age\u226535 years, status obesity (MUAC \u226528 cm), weight gain (\u226510 kg), and high education (\u2265 senior high school).
