ABSTRACT

Objectives The purpose of this study was to reveal that Sasang constitution(SC) was associated with hypertension and pre-hypertension and could be a risk factor. Methods We introduced this study to educational personnel in D university in Daejeon, and 275 subjects joined this study. The SC classification was conducted with KS 15 questionnaire. The subjected measured the blood pressure with Jawon medical device automatically after 10 minute rest. The hypertension and pre-hypertension was classified by the guide of the Seventh Report of the Joint National Committee on Prevention, Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Pressure. The frequency analysis and T-test was used in general characteristics, and chi-square test was also used between SC and pre-hypertension and hypertension. Logistic regression was used to calculate the odds ratios (ORs) and 95% confidence interval (95% CI) for pre-hypertension and hypertension. Results The number of Taeeumin(TE), Soeumin(SE), and Soyangin(SY) was 142, 71, and 61 respectively. There was significantly different in systolic and diastolic blood pressure among SC types(p<.001). The distribution of the normal group, pre-hypertension and hypertension group by SC types was significantly different (p<.001). The ORs of TE was significantly increased (ORs 4.039, 95% CI=2.019-8.082 in pre-hypertension and ORs 4.235, 95% CI=1.581-11.348 in hypertension) compared with SE(p<.001), and after adjusting gender and smoking habit, it was still significantly different(p<.001). Conclusions It is possible that SC, especially TE could be a risk factor both pre-hypertension and hypertension.
