Diet Low Salt


Presentation

  • Home health clinicians can select a variety of the instructional techniques presented to meet individual patient learning needs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Euthyroid
  • Patients with hypothyroidism (31 subjects) were studied before the treatment and in the euthyroid state. Control values were obtained from 37 healthy individuals.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Intravenous Administration
  • In this study, we found that intravenous administration of amino acid, used as one component of parenteral nutrition, to normal volunteers resulted in a significant increase in renal blood flow (from 517 /- 29 to 754 /- 60 ml/min) and glomerular filtration[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Pertussis
  • The amount of pertussis toxin substrate (Gi protein) was similar in both groups before and after dietary sodium restriction. At comparable pNE, %AC INH in the groups was similar (young, 24 /- 4 vs. elderly, 18 /- 4%; P NS).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Tinnitus
  • For the record, my blood pressure is 110/70, and I don’t suffer from heart disease, tinnitus, ankle edema, or any of the maladies for which salt reduction is considered de rigeur.[drhoffman.com]
  • Meniere’s disease almost always is a progressive set of symptoms that includes vertigo (dizziness that often results in uncontrollable vomiting), constant tinnitus (a ringing or buzzing sound in the ears), aural fullness (a clogged or stuffy sensation[todaysdietitian.com]

Workup

Aldosterone Increased
  • Abstract To study the mechanisms underlying renin and aldosterone increase during low sodium diet, eight normal subjects were studied during normal sodium diet (5 g of NaCl per day) for 5 days, after 4 days of low sodium diet, and, on continuing low sodium[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Renin increased 1.60 ng/mL/hour (55%); aldosterone increased 97.81 pg/mL (127%); adrenalin increased 7.55 pg/mL (14%); noradrenalin increased 63.56 pg/mL: (27%); cholesterol increased 5.59 mg/dL (2.9%); triglyceride increased 7.04 mg/dL (6.3%).[cochrane.org]

Treatment

  • This modified diet may be an attractive alternative to anti-hypertensive drug therapy as a first line treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Epidemiology

  • Epidemiological data suggest that dietary sodium intake may be associated with systemic inflammation: another potential pathophysiological mechanism by which sodium intake may modify vascular disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Moore will present the findings during the Epidemiological Research Addressing Diet and Health Outcomes Session at 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., Tuesday, April 25, in Room S103BC, McCormick Place Convention Center ( abstract ).[eurekalert.org]
