The effects of salt (NaCl) supplementation of rat diets (50 g/kg diet), with normal (200 g/kg) or high (500 g/kg) dietary casein content, were studied in 3-week-old male rats over a 3-week period. Weight gain was reduced by dietary salt but was unaffected by dietary casein. Salt-supplemented rats exhibited a two- and three-fold increase in urinary Mg and Ca excretion respectively, irrespective of dietary casein content. Dietary casein had no effect on urinary Ca or Mg. Salt reduced femoral mass… CONTINUE READING
