Adverse Neurogenic Actions of Dietary Salt

Study Description

Adverse Neurogenic Actions of Dietary Salt

Excess dietary salt increases the risk for cardiovascular events, even in people that are not hypertensive. There is some evidence that excess dietary salt exaggerates blood pressure and sympathetic nervous system responses to various perturbations and increases blood pressure variability. This proposal will examine the effects of low, medium, and high salt diets on cardiovascular reactivity and blood pressure variability.
