Since both these electrolytes can be modified by diet, attention has focused on decreasing sodium intake and increasing potassium intake as a potential way of treating and preventing hypertension. Several short-term controlled clinical trials have examined the effect of supplemental potassium intake on blood pressure, but with inconsistent results.
