Introduction: High blood pressure is one of the most common non-communicable diseases that is caused by unhealthy lifestyle. The aim of this study was to assess the lifestyle of people with hypertension and compare it with healthy people in Bandar-e-Lengeh city.
Methods: In this cross-sectional descriptive-comparative study, 385 people (183 patients with a history of hypertension and 202 healthy people), who reffered to Bandar-e-Lengeh health centers in year 1398, were selected using a combined sampling method as the study sample. The data collection tool was a questionnaire with three parts including demographic information and disease history, clinical examinations, and LSQ lifestyle questionnaire. Data analysis was performed using SPSS software and univariate and multivariate logistic regression. A P-Value of   <0.05 was considered statistically significant.
Results: The results showed that the mean age in the group with hypertension was 55.30±13.16 years and in the healthy group it was 49.23±12.69 years. Among the life style dimensions, psychological health (R = 0.96 and P-Value <0.05) and avoiding the use of drugs and narcotics (R = 0.92 and 0.05). P-Value <0.05) had the highest correlation with the blood pressure.
Conclusion: According to the findings, health can be improved by improving the dimensions of lifestyle. Therefore, health policymakers need to look at lifestyle dimensions to identify high-risk groups, increase screening efficiencies, and promote the health.
