Water ingestion induces a sympathetically mediated increase in blood pressure in dysautonomic patients and the elderly, but not consistently in young healthy subjects. The aim of study was to determine the extent of the pressor response and changes of sympathetic activity biomarker salivary alpha-amylase (sAA) after water ingestion in young healthy subjects. Compared with ingestion of 50 mL of water, the blood pressure, total peripheral resistance and sAA significantly increased and the plasma… CONTINUE READING
