ABSTRACT

Abstract:- This paper investigates the relationship of Age and Blood cholesterol on systolic blood pressure. The data used for this paper were obtained from Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital, Ado Ekiti. People wondered if high blood pressure is a function of age or that the effect of high blood cholesterol is manifested in the high blood pressure. A multiple regression analysis was used for the study. At the end of the analysis, Age and systolic blood pressure were seen to have a significant relationship with each other. Also, blood cholesterol and age were found to have significant relationship with systolic blood pressure. The result shows a degree of relationship between the blood pressure and the blood cholesterol. Increase in blood cholesterol signifies increase in blood pressure of a man which can easily lead to an abnormal blood pressure e.g. high blood pressure.
