Previous data from this laboratory suggest that Ca-induced reductions in blood pressure may result in part from Ca-induced natriuresis and a possible reduction in intravascular volume. Consequently, the present study was conducted to directly determine the relative effects of dietary Ca and Na on total body water (TBW) and extracellular water (ECW) as… CONTINUE READING
