Neurohumoral and hemodynamic responses to dietary calcium supplementation in deoxycorticosterone-salt hypertensive dogs.

Abstract

We determined whether dietary calcium supplementation can influence the development and maintenance of hypertension in deoxycorticosterone (DOC)-salt-treated dogs. Dogs on normal dietary calcium (0.4%) had significant increases in mean arterial pressure (from 92 +/- 2 to 131 +/- 3 mm Hg, p less than 0.01); those given high dietary calcium (1.7%) had… (More)
