Persons with prehypertension are at twice the risk of developing hypertension compared to normotensive individuals.
Objective: To evaluate the cardiac risk factors and their prevalence in patients with pre-hypertension and to determine the changes in cardiac risk factors such as diabetes, dyslipidaemia in prehypertensive individuals after homoeopathic treatment.
Methods: This is a quasi – experimental 6-month prospective study with an evaluation before and at the end of the treatment without control design.
Results: The measured ‘p’ value for all the parameters was 0.000, which is less than 0.01, that denotes a high significant reduction in SBP, DBP, FBS, TC, TG, LDL, VLDL and increase in HDL values after constitutional homoeopathic treatment.
Conclusion: This study concludes that Homoeopathy is effective in modifying the cardiac risk factors such as diabetes and dyslipidemia in prehypertension.
