The effect of dietary salt restriction on hypertension in peritoneal dialysis patients
To investigate the effect of dietary salt restriction on blood pressure levels, total sodium removal, and hydration status of peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. Materials and methods: Thirty-one stable PD patients who consulted a renal dietitian monthly for dietary recommendations, including restricted salt intake 0.05) for the whole sample, and from 164.3 ± 70.9 to 154.2 ± 72.3 mmol/day (P > 0.05) for the hypertensive subgroup (n: 17). Systolic blood pressure (from 134.3 ± 20.1 to 127.2 ± 19.5 mmHg, P: 0.01), diastolic blood pressure (from 83.2 ± 12.0 to 77.4 ± 10.5 mmHg, P: 0.01) and total body water (from 39.2 ± 10.9 to 38.3 ± 9.3 L, P: 0.04) decreased significantly. Conclusion: We demonstrated that even a little reduction in daily dietary sodium intake caused significant decreases in blood pressure levels and fluid overload.
