Abstract

Correspondence discuss the putative pitfalls of a Guytonian interpretation of salt sensitivity of blood pressure, including the lack of a b differences in sodium balance, plasma volume and cardiac Theodore W. Kurtz , Stephen E. DiCarlo , c d output between salt-sensitive and salt-resistant individuals Michal Pravenec , and R. Curtis Morris Jr given a salt load. We have also published on this [6]. We would, therefore, suggest if these authors continue their crusade against ‘Guytonian dogma’ that they comment on e thank Drs Laffer and Elijovich for their interest new and important evidence. This includes the fact that salt [1] in our publication [2] focusing on the Amer- sensitivity can be experimentally produced by manipulat- W ican Heart Association (AHA) Scientific State- ing genes that are exclusively expressed in the kidney, ment on salt sensitivity [3]. To our knowledge, our without expression or known function in the vasculature, publication is the first to criticize the AHA Statement [3] such as uromodulin [7], and also by specific renal proximal as it pertains to the pathogenesis of salt sensitivity.
