PRELIMINARY PRELIMINARY STUDY ON BLOOD PROFILE OF BLOOD PRESSURE AND VEGETABLE CONSUMPTION AMONG WOMEN IN THE ERA OF GERMAS IN CICANIR AND JATIPAMOR VILLAGES, MAJALENGKA REGENCY, WEST JAVA PROVINCE
Objective: To discover the profile of hypertension (HT) disease and consumption habit of vegetables among women in Cicanir and Jatipamor villages related to the program of Gerakan Masyarakat Hidup Sehat (GERMAS)/Healthy Living Society Movement.
Method: The study used a cross-sectional design while respondents were taken by using a simple random sampling. The blood pressure profile was classified based on the Seventh Report of the Joint National Committee (JNC 7). The respondents suffering from HT were given a question relating to their blood pressure. Vegetable consumption profile of the respondents was measured by using four questions.
Result: Youngest ages of pre-HT respondents in Cicanir and Jatipamor were 16 and 18 y, respectively; youngest ages of HT respondents in Cicanir and Jatipamor were 22 and 18 y, respectively. Numbers of the respondents with HT in Cicanir and Jatipamor villages had increased into 16.3% and 10.9%, respectively. Vegetables consumption frequencies for 4-7 d/w in Cicanir and Jatipamor were 81.33% and 62.66%, respectively. The respondents cleaning vegetables under running water in Cicanir and Jatipamor were 74.67% and 86.67%, respectively. The respondents who cooked the vegetables optimally in Cicanir and Jatipamor were 46.67% and 93.33%, respectively. Based on vegetable sources, the respondents bought the vegetables in the markets in Cicanir and Jatipamor were 81.33% and 93.33%, respectively.
Conclusion: In both villages, HT prevalence had increased. Vegetable consumption profile found in the respondents showed the respondents had a good vegetable consumption habit. It is important to improve awareness of respondents to maintain health for themselves and their families.
