Abstract

To further investigate the relationship between salt intake and sympathetic nervous system activity, the short- and long-term effects of a low-salt diet (40 meq/kg) were assessed in 10 normal subjects. Measurements of hemodynamic, hormonal, and other parameters were obtained on the day preceding institution of the low-salt diet (day 0) and on days 4, 7, 30, and 60 of the diet. Urinary sodium excretion was 178 ± 10 meq/24 hr on day 0 and 31 ± 4, 38 ± 4, 45 ± 6, and 47 ± 7 meq/24 hr on days 4, 7, 30, and 60, respectively (all p
