Description

Summary

The overall objective of this study is to examine how dietary sodium is used by the body. In a racially diverse sample of adults, the investigators will examine the effects of high and low dietary sodium intake on the storage and excretion of sodium and determine whether sodium distribution affects blood pressure. This has implications for how investigators interpret studies that use urine biomarkers of sodium. Study findings about tissue sodium storage also have implications for managing hypertension and related conditions.
