Background: A low-sodium (Na), high-potassium (K) diet is recommended to suppress blood pressure elevation, but determining the absolute amounts of Na and K in a diet is difficult. A novel portable device was developed to allow easy measurement of urinary Na/K ratio on the spot. In this study, our aims were 1): to observe the changes of urinary Na/K ratio in subjects on low- and high-Na diet and 2): to determine if there are differences in urinary Na/K ratio between subjects with and without… CONTINUE READING
