A descriptive, qualitative and cross-cutting type study was conducted, with the primary purpose of preventive intervention, non-randomized, open masking, with an active monitoring group of first-class health personnel in a rural community. Knowledge and practices were analyzed in patients with type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure, n= 68, and their relationship to adherence to treatment and exposure to modifiable risk factors. Among the most outstanding results, we find that the group in analysis is in a state of anxiety and with problems in mobility to carry out their daily activities. These problems are attributed as effects of diabetes mellitus and hypertension. The causes that triggered diabetes mellitus and hypertension and the complications they present are unknown to and do not include patients, linking them to lived emotional consequences, and not to the exposure of behavioral and metabolic risk factors.

Keywords : Chronic-Degenerative Diseases, Hypertension, Diabetes Mellitus, Risks From Unhealthy Behaviors.
