Resumo

The objective of this cross-sectional study was to estimate the prevalence of self-reported hypertension and diabetes among the users of primary health care services of Southeast Ribeirao Preto, State of Sao Paulo, Brazil, and to identify variables which may be associated with these chronic conditions. A stratified sample of 1,055 adult individuals was surveyed, with the resulting associations being examined by using log-binomial regression models and then expressed as prevalence ratios (PRs). The prevalence of self-reported hypertension among women was 20.2% (95% CI: 17.5-23.1) and among men was 29.0% (95% CI: 22.9-35.5), while the prevalence of self-reported diabetes among women was 6.9% (95% CI: 5.2-8.8) and among men was 12.2% (95% CI: 8.1-17.3). The prevalence of both conditions increases significantly with age. Crude and adjusted PRs indicate no association between socioeconomic status and the self-reported chronic conditions. (AU)
