Abstract

Introduction: Psychosocial factors have been shown to be potentiators and triggers of cardiovascular diseases such as hypertension. The purpose of the study is to explore the relationship between psychosocial factors and the presence of hypertension in a random population sample in the city of Medellin. Methods: Observational cross-sectional study with an analytical approach. The endpoint (hypertension) was contrasted with the psychosocial and sociodemographic endpoints by means of a bivariate analysis, and later a multivariate logistic regression analysis was carried out. Results: After adjusting for age, gender and stressful life events, depression (OR = 1.65; 95% CI: 1.13–2.41) and sleep disorders (OR = 1.41; 95% CI: 1.00–1.98) were found to be psychosocial factors associated with hypertension. Conclusions: Depression and sleep disorders are related to hypertension. In Colombia there are studies that correlate psychosocial factors such as depression with hypertension; however, the impact of sleep disorders on the population is unknown.
