A study on psychosocial processes of health behaviour change of essential hypertension and diabetes


Kamlesh Dubey

The present paper deals a study on psychosocial processes of health behavior change of essential hypertension and diabetes. A growing body of research demonstrates that psychosocial factors play an important role in the development of hypertension. Cardiovascular epidemiology has established blood pressure, serum cholesterol and smoking as the most powerful and consistent predictors of coronary risk in middle age and older adults. Studies of children suggest that coronary risk factors are already present at early ages, but relatively little epidemiologic data exist on the coronary risk status of young adults, especially those who have recently completed physical growth as they begin to enter typical adult roles in this society, a phase characterized by changes in lifestyle and responsibility. The student becomes a worker, the single person a spouse and parent, with changes in eating, drinking, sleeping, and exercise.
