Young (5 week old) spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) were fed diets modified with respect to their calcium content. Control rats were given a normal calcium diet (0.3 per cent). During the experiment the systolic blood pressure (SBP), heart rate and serum level of total and ionized calcium were measured. Three diets were studied :calcium-free diet (0 per cent, h1), low calcium diet (0.03 per cent, h2) and high calcium diet (1.2 per cent, H). The h1 diet induced a transitory increase (at… CONTINUE READING
