Abstract

WE demonstrated in earlier experiments that it was possible to inhibit renal neurogenic hypertension in rats when potassium salts were mixed with their food1. It was likewise demonstrated that the degree of Grollman hypertension did not depend on the absolute quantity of sodium and potassium in the food but on the mutual proportions of the two electrolytes2. Meneely's experiments3 gave similar results: rats, made hypertensive by excessive doses of sodium chloride, could be kept alive and the rise of their blood pressure stopped by feeding them potassium salts. The blood pressure of hypertensive patients can be lowered by a high potassium diet4.
