Abstract:
Background and Objective: Stroke is the second leading cause of death worldwide. Stroke caused 23.48% of all deaths in Indonesia, a country with the highest prevalence of stroke in the world. The main risk factor for stroke is hypertension. In Indonesia, hypertension is the most prevalent non-communicable disease (25.8%). The objective of this study was to determine lipid profile and postprandial (PPG) status among hypertensive people with stroke in Indonesia. Materials and Methods: In this study cross-sectional study design was used and obtained data from secondary data of Riskesd as 2013. The number of respondents was 8,511. Data was analyzed using Cohran’s and Mantel-Haenzel test. Results: Prevalence of stroke cases in people with hypertension was 9%. Most of stroke respondents have high T-cholesterol, LDL-C, triglyceride and PPG. Factors related to stroke are: age, LDL-C level(PR = 1.21; 95% CI = 1.026-1.431) and PPG levels ((PR = 1.28; 95% CI = 1.102-1.1492). After adjusting for gender and age, PPG was associated with stroke prevalence in hypertensive people in Indonesia. Conclusion: Prevalence of high LDL-C and PPG levels in hypertensive people with stroke is high. Those related to stroke incident among hypertensive people. It needs an educational effort to the stroke group to control LDL-C levels for prevention of recurrent stroke and other impacts.
