Fourteen normotensive men (7 black, 7 white) were studied following equilibration during dietary sodium intake of 10, 300, 600, 800, 1200, and 1500 mEq sodium per day. Significant (p less than 0.05) increases in mean arterial blood pressure were seen after sodium intake of 800 mEq/d. Blood pressure increased at lower levels of sodium intake (800 mEq/d) and to a greater magnitude (21 mm Hg) in blacks than in whites (1200 mEq/d; 13 mm Hg). Sodium loading was associated with marked suppression of… CONTINUE READING
