We employed a total sampling technique (35 participants) and collected data through guided interviews using WHOQOL-Bref questionnaires.
Results: We discovered that participants with hypertension for less than five years were 45.7%, while those with hypertension for more than five years were 54.3%. Physical domain (57.1%), psychological domain (57.1%), and environmental domain (51.4%) all fall into the "good" category of life quality measurement. Meanwhile, social relationship were in the moderate category (42.9%). The following p values demonstrate the association between the duration of hypertension and quality of life: 0.460; 0.719; 0.635; and 0.975.
