With advancing age, there is a generalized reduction in the ability of the kidney to generate a natriuretic response and, in addition, the incidence of salt-sensitive hypertension increases. One event that could link these changes is a defect that develops in the pressure natriuresis response of the old kidney. To test this possibility, we conducted studies… (More)
