Abstract

Studies show that the excess morbidity and mortality related to hypertension are progressive over the whole range of systolic and diastolic blood pressure. End-organ disease, however, varies markedly between individuals with similar levels of hypertension. A stronger link between salt intake, salt sensitivity and hypertensive target organ disease is emerging in the literature, suggesting that salt sensitivity may be a marker of susceptibility of individuals to hypertension and its complications. This review focuses on some of the many reports published in this area within the past year.
