Hyperuricemia and hypertension in Wates primary health care center


The purpose of this paper was to determine the relationship between hyperuricemia and hypertension occurrence in Wates primary health care center.


A cross-sectional study was conducted using medical records of 220 patients with the age of 18 years or older who met the inclusion criteria in Wates primary health care center in 2015.


The study found that hyperuricemia was associated with hypertension occurrence in Wates primary health care center in 2015, while age and dyslipidemia were confounders in the hyperuricemia and hypertension relationship. 


It was found that hyperuricemia had some influence on hypertension occurrence. There are many etiological factors associated with hypertension causing the difficulty of predicting the most common causes of hypertension. A cohort study should be done for further study. Early detection of elevated serum uric acid levels as a risk factor for hypertension needs to be done, in order to prevent hypertension.
