Beryl is a 50 year old woman with Hypertension who is
attending a Healthy Heart Workshop at her local
Community Health Centre. Beryl’s blood pressure is
160/95, she is 150cms in height and her weight is 105kg.
Beryl reports that she drinks two to three glasses of wine
per night, eats a lot of take away foods as she’s too busy
with her executive management job to think about cooking.
She is a single mother caring for three school aged children
to always cook. She states that she rarely exercises due to
lack of time. Beryl visited her GP last week after feeling
unwell. Pathology was taken and Beryl’s GP report shows
that her total cholesterol is 6 mmol/L, Low Density
Lipoprotein 3.1 mmol/L and High Density Lipoprotein
0.8mmol/L. The GP commenced Beryl on medications but
she states “I keep forgetting to take them, my life is just so
stressful at the moment. I really don’t have time to be here,
I need to be at work”.
