Abstract

This study was designed to determine the nutrition knowledge, attitude and nutritional practices of hypertension patients and healthy adults in Taipei County. This questionnaire consisted of four parts: basic characteristics, nutrition knowledge, attitude, and nutrition practices. The results included 213 hypertension patients and 311 adults who resided in Taipei county. There were significant differences between these two groups in age, economic status and education level. A body mass index (BMI; kg/m2) of more than 26.4 was observed in 32% of the hypertension patients and 22% of the adults. About 25% of the subjects smoked and drank. Sixty percent of the subjects exercised. Eighty-three percent patients and 54% healthy people regularly measured their blood pressure. The average score for correct answers for all subjects was 7.5 out of 10. The preventive knowledge score and therapeutic knowledge score were no different for both groups. However, hypertensive patients had a less obedient attitude than healthy people. These patients had a higher score for "avoiding fatty foods" and "disliking salt-processed foods" than the general public. About fifty percent of the patients and general public did not know information- related to hypertension. Government and nutrition educators may expand the scope of this study for hypertension patients and public education programs.
