It has been suggested that an approach to hypertension based on the constitutional make-up of an individual may be effective. We conducted a retrospective chart review to explore the association of Sasang constitution with hypertension. The results show that the prevalence of hypertension was highest in the Taeeum (TE) constitutional type, and that the TE constitutional type can act as an independent risk factor for hypertension (OR in TE group = 1.37 (CI 1.06-1.78) (vs. non-TE group)). This indicates that the Sasang constitutional type could explain the variability in individual susceptibilities to hypertension, suggesting a novel constitution-based approach to hypertension.
