Abstract

Hypertension among the elderly generally represents a salt - sensitive state - However this salt-sensitivity does not appear to result from age-related increase in either sodium or salt intake. Since 20 years new trends seem to relate the role of sodium in the genesis of hypertension to a primary abnormality of electrolyte transport of cell membrane.
