HUBUNGAN POLA MAKAN DAN AKTIVITAS FISIK DENGAN KEJADIAN HIPERTENSI
Hypertension or high blood pressure is a disorder of the blood vessels which causes the supply of oxygen and nutrients carried by the blood to be blocked to the body tissues that need it. This study aims to determine the relationship between sodium consumption, fat consumption and physical activity with the incidence of hypertension in outpatients.

In this study there were 50 respondents dominated by men (60%) the average had a family history of hypertension (28%), the average was high school education (34%) and the majority worked as farmers (40%). This study showed that there was a relationship between sodium consumption and fat consumption (p < = 0.05) and physical activity (p < = 0.05) with the incidence of hypertension. Eet pattern about sodium consumption fat consumption and physical activity has a relationship with the incidence of hypertension.
