Head-out water immersion (HOI) induces various renal functional changes, such as diuresis, natriuresis, and kaliuresis. The present study was undertaken 1) to characterize the renal response to HOI in Koreans who routinely ingest high salt diet and 2) to evaluate the impact of exercise on the renal response to HOI. Six healthy male subjects (average Na+ intake of 232 mEq.day-1) were immersed upto the neck in 34.5 degrees C water and rested in a seated position or exercised on a bicycle… CONTINUE READING
