Prevalence and predisposing factors for self-reported hypertension in Bhutanese adults

Wangdi, Kinley; Jamtsho, Tshering


Bhutan underwent a nutrition transition in the last two decades. Diet has changed from high-fibre, high carbohydrate and low-fat diets to food with high sugar, fat, salt and processed foods. This is further compounded by a sedentary lifestyle. This paper aims to determine the national prevalence of hypertension and study the associated correlates in Bhutanese adults.
