I Googled ‘salt and endothelium’ and there certainly is lots of published data out there! It seems that salt loading can cause over-expression on blood pressure and vascular function. I never worried about a rise in BP b/c I’m hypotensive but hadn’t thought about the vascular system itself. Thankfully I already reduced my salt intake months ago when my stomach disagreed with the salt pills.
Thanks again for ALL YOUR WORK!!
Oh, charlie1, you may enjoy (maybe “enjoy” isn’t quite the right word!) this article about how salt may increase the propensity for acquiring autoimmune disorders: http://prettyill.com/downloads/Salt_linked_to_autoimmunity_diseases.pdf I never thought it was good for us long-term to treat our orthostatic problems by trying to “cover up” the symptom with tons of salt. Frankly, it didn’t work very well for my kids and I anyway! But I am aware that many of us develop numerous autoimmune disorders, so when I read this, I was even MORE motivated to find the underlying cause, and treat THAT! Be kind to your endothelium! We need it! 😉
