BACKGROUND In hypertension, sodium sensitivity (SS) of blood pressure is associated with renal hemodynamic abnormalities related to increased activity of the renal renin-angiotensin aldosterone system (RAAS). The renal mechanisms of SS in normotensives are unknown. Therefore, we studied whether SS is related to renal hemodynamics and renal responsiveness to angiotensin II (AngII) in young healthy adults. METHODS Blood pressure (mean arterial pressure (MAP)) and renal function were measured in… CONTINUE READING
