STATISTICAL MODEL OF EFFECTS OF WEIGHT ON PATIENTS WITH HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE

CHAPTER ONE
1.0  INTRODUCTION
1.1 Background of the Study
          The number of people with high blood pressure is in the increase and research has shown that this condition is hightened by overweight of the patient. That is to say, the more one increases in weight, the higher the tendency of him or her becoming hypertensive. Mori TA (2007).
          In essence, there is a symbolic relationship between being over-weight and being hypertensive or having high blood pressure. It is in the interest of people who are likely to develop high blood pressure (over-weight people) to seek out ways of managing their weight, as this research work will try to bring out the effects of weight on such people with high blood pressure. What seems unresolved here is the extent to which weight affect people suffering from high blood pressure. Many writers’ views will be examined in the cause of this work to help resolve the issue at stake
