Objectives: Hypertension is one of the major risk factors for many terminal diseases. Depression is an under-recognized medical condition that is often experienc-ed as a comorbid problem for people who are diagnosed with chronic medical illness-es. The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of depressive symptoms among patients with hypertension.
Method: In a case-control study, 143 consecutive patients with hypertension were selected based on the inclusive and exclusive criteria and compared to 143 normal people selected from first degree-relatives of the patients. Data collected by using demographic questionnaire and the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI). Regarding cut off point of 10 in BDI. All subjects in both case and control groups were divided into two groups with and without depressive symptoms. Then
c2 tests and the none-parametric test of Mann-Whitney were used to analyze the data.
Results: The findings showed that 66% of patients with hypertension and 40% of normal people suffered from depressive symptoms. The results of
c2 test showed the significant difference between two groups in experiencing depressive symptoms (P< 0.001). Also, Mann-Whitney results confirmed the significant differences between three level of depression severity including mild, moderate and severe (P< 0.001).
Conclusion: Depressive symptoms are prevalent among patients with hypertension more than normal people. Recognition of depression among patients with hypertension are importance in order to preventing adverse effects of depression. Investigation of bidirectional link between hypertension and depressive symptoms for future studies is proposed.
