What are we studying?
The purpose of this research study is to find out how the body uses salt. In a racially diverse sample of adults with high blood pressure, we will examine the effects of high and low dietary salt intake on the storage and excretion of sodium to determine whether its distribution in the body affects blood pressure. Our findings may have implications for managing hypertension and related conditions.
