    Relationship between urinary sodium-to-potassium ratio and ambulatory blood pressure in patients with diabetes mellitus.
    Clin Exp Pharmacol Physiol 2018 Jan 25;45(1):94-97. Epub 2017 Oct 25.
    Department of Medicine, The University of Melbourne, Melbourne, Vic., Australia.
    Previous studies investigating the relationship between sodium intake and blood pressure have mostly relied on dietary recall and clinic blood pressure measurement. In this cross-sectional study, we aimed to investigate the relationship between 24 hour urinary sodium and potassium excretion, and their ratio, with 24 hour ambulatory blood pressure parameters including nocturnal blood pressure dipping in patients with type 1 and 2 diabetes. We report that in 116 patients with diabetes, systolic blood pressure was significantly predicted by the time of day, age, the interaction between dipping status with time, and 24 hour urinary sodium-to-potassium ratio (R2  = 0.83) with a relative contribution of 53%, 21%, 20% and 6%, respectively. However, there was no interaction between urinary sodium-to-potassium ratio and dipping status.

    Dietary potassium intake and renal handling, and their impact on the cardiovascular health of normotensive afro-caribbeans.
    West Indian Med J 2014 Jan 8;63(1):13-9. Epub 2014 Apr 8.
    Faculty of Medical Sciences, The University of the West Indies, Cave Hill, Barbados.
    Objective: Recent nutritional profiles of dietary intake have indicated a shift from the ancient diet to the Western diet. The ancient diet provided a high potassium and low sodium intake, which in turn leads to sodium conservation and potassium excretion. This change in the dietary intake is expected to affect potassium and sodium handling in the kidneys. Read More
    Association Between Urinary Sodium and Potassium Excretion and Blood Pressure Among Adults in the United States: National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 2014.
    Circulation 2017 Oct 11. Epub 2017 Oct 11.
    National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD.
    Background -Higher levels of sodium and lower levels of potassium intake are associated with higher blood pressure. However, the shape and magnitude of these associations can vary by study participant characteristics or intake assessment method. Twenty-four hour urinary excretion of sodium and potassium are unaffected by recall errors and represent all sources of intake, and were collected for the first time in a nationally representative US survey.

    Relationship of urinary sodium and sodium-to-potassium ratio to blood pressure in older adults in Australia.
    Med J Aust 2011 Aug;195(3):128-32
    Department of Nutrition and Dietetics, Monash University, Melbourne, VIC, Australia.
    Objective: To assess the relationship between dietary sodium intake, as measured by urinary electrolyte excretion, and blood pressure within a population of older Australian adults.

    Design, Setting And Participants: A cross-sectional study of adults enrolled in the Melbourne Collaborative Cohort Study, stratified by sex, country of birth (Italy, Greece, Australia/New Zealand) and age (50-59 and 60-75 years). Blood pressure measurements were taken in 2003-2007 and 24-hour urine collections in 2007-2008. Read More
