Inhibition by amiloride of sodium-dependent fluid reabsorption in the rat isolated caudal epididymis. (1/16576)

The rate of fluid reabsorption was studied in the rat isolated caudal epididymal sac in vitro. 2 Part of the fluid reabsorption was found to be dependent on intraluminal Na+. Amiloride (0.1 mM) completely inhibited this component of fluid reabsorption. 3 The log dose-inhibition curve to amiloride was sigmoid and the IC50 value was found to be 1.6 muM.  (+info)

Increased insensible water loss in newborn infants nursed under radiant heaters. (2/16576)

Urine osmolality was studied in 38 babies nursed in conventional incubators or cots and 18 nursed under an overhead radiant heat shield. Among 50 babies receiving a similar fluid intake in the first 48 hours of life mean urinary osmolality was significantly higher in the radiant heater group. In babies weighing less than 1500 g a trend towards higher urinary osmolalities was recorded in those nursed under radiant heaters even though they had received amost double the fluid intake of the incubator group. Severe hypernatraemia occurred in four of the five babies weighing less than 1000 g who were nursed under radiant heaters but in none of the seven babies of similar birth weight nursed in incubators. These findings are consistent with previous observations of an increase in insensible water loss in babies nursed under radiant heaters and emphasise the importance of providing enough extra water for these infants and the need for close monitoring of their fluid balance. The latter may be done at the bedside by measuring urinary specific gravity with a hand refractometer.  (+info)

Quantification of baroreceptor influence on arterial pressure changes seen in primary angiotension-induced hypertension in dogs. (3/16576)

We studied the role of the sino-aortic baroreceptors in the gradual development of hypertension induced by prolonged administration of small amounts of angiotensin II (A II) in intact dogs and dogs with denervated sino-aortic baroreceptors. Short-term 1-hour infusions of A II(1.0-100 ng/kg per min) showed that conscious denervated dogs had twice the pressor sensitivity of intact dogs. Long-term infusions of A II at 5.0 ng/kg per min (2-3 weeks) with continuous 24-hour recordings of arterial pressure showed that intact dogs required 28 hours to reach the same level of pressure attained by denervated dogs during the 1st hour of infusion. At the 28th hour the pressure in both groups was 70% of the maximum value attained by the 7th day of infusion. Both intact and denervated dogs reached nearly the same plateau level of pressure, the magnitude being directly related both the the A II infusion rate and the daily sodium intake. Cardiac output in intact dogs initially decreased after the onset of A II infusion, but by the 5th day of infusion it was 38% above control, whereas blood volume was unchanged. Heart rate returned to normal after a reduction during the 1st day of infusion in intact dogs. Plasma renin activity could not be detected after 24 hours of A II infusion in either intact or denervated dogs. The data indicate that about 35% of the hypertensive effect of A II results from its acute pressor action, and an additional 35% of the gradual increase in arterial pressure is in large measure a result of baroreceptor resetting. We conclude that the final 30% increase in pressure seems to result from increased cardiac output, the cause of which may be decreased vascular compliance. since the blood volume remains unaltered.  (+info)

Acute and chronic dose-response relationships for angiotensin, aldosterone, and arterial pressure at varying levels of sodium intake. (4/16576)

We examined the acute and chronic dose-response relationships between intravenously infused angiotensin II (A II) and the resulting changes in arterial pressure and plasma aldosterone concentration at varying levels of sodium intake. Sequential analysis of plasma aldosterone at each A II infusion rate resulted in an acute dose-related increase in plasma aldosterone which was markedly attenuated after the first 24 hours of infusion, the final level being directly related to the dose of A II and inversely related to sodium intake. A II infused at 5,15, and 23 ng/kg per min was associated with an initial increase (2nd to 8th hour) in plasma aldosterone to 2,6, and 9 times control values, respectively, in dogs receiving 40 mEq Na+/day. But, after the 1st day, aldosterone averaged only 1, 1.7, and 3 times control values for the next 2 weeks at the same rates of A II infusion. Dogs receiving 120 mEq Na+/day during A II infusion exhibited only a transient increase in plasma aldosterone during the 1st day. Sustained hypertension developed over a period of a week at all doses of A II at normal and high sodium intake, but did not occur at any dose of A II in sodium-depleted dogs. Increasing sodium intake from 40 to 120 mEq/day resulted in higher levels of hypertension, 125% compared to 140% of ocntrol values for dogs infused with A II, 5.0 ng/kg per min. We conclude that primary angiotensin-induced hypertension need not be associated with increased levels of plasma aldosterone, which appears to remain elevated only with amounts of A II greater than those required to sustain a significant degree of hypertension.  (+info)

Intrarenal site of action of calcium on renin secretion in dogs. (5/16576)

We studied the effects of intrarenal calcium infusion on renin secretion in sodium-depleted dogs in an attempt to elucidate the major site of calcium-induced inhibition of renin release. Both calcium chloride and calcium gluconate reduced renal blood flow and renin secretion while renal perfusion pressure was unchanged. These data indicate that calcium inhibition of renin secretion did not occur primarily at the renal vascular receptor; decreased renal blood flow is usually associated with increased renin secretion. Calcium chloride infusion increased urinary chloride excretion without affecting sodium excretion, and calcium gluconate failed to increase either sodium or chloride excretion. Also, the filtered loads of sodium and chloride were unchanged during the calcium infusions. These results give no indication that calcium inhibited renin secretion by increasing the sodium or chloride load at the macula densa. The effects of intrarenal calcium infusion on renin release were also assessed in dogs with a nonfiltering kidney in which renal tubular mechanisms could not influence renin secretion. The observation that calcium still suppressed renin release in these dogs provides additional evidence that the the major effect of calcium involved nontubular mechanisms. Thus, it appears likely that calcium acted directly on the juxtaglomerular cells to inhibit renin secretion.  (+info)

Effect of paracetamol (acetaminophen) on gastric ionic fluxes and potential difference in man. (6/16576)

Paracetamol has replaced aspirin as the analgesic of choice in many situations. The major reason is the damaging effect of aspirin on gastric mucosa. Alterations in gastric ionic fluxes and potential difference provide measures of aspirin-induced structural damage. We studied the effect of large doses of paracetamol (acetaminophen 2-0 g) on gastric ionic fluxes in man. In addition, the effect of 2-0 g paracetamol on gastric potential difference was compared with that of 600 mg aspirin. In contrast with salicylates, paracetamol caused no significant alteration in movement of H+ and Na+ ions over control periods. Aspirin causes a significant fall in transmucosal potential difference (PD) across gastric mucosa of 15 mv, while paracetamol cuased no significant change. Paracetamol in a dose four times that recommended does not alter gastric ionic fluxes or potential difference. These studies support choice of paracetamol as analgesic over aspirin where damage to gastric mucosa may be critical.  (+info)

Intracellular sodium modulates the expression of angiotensin II subtype 2 receptor in PC12W cells. (7/16576)

Although the angiotensin II subtype 2 receptor (AT2-R) is expressed abundantly in the adrenal medulla, its physiological significance has not yet been determined. To obtain fundamental knowledge of the regulation of AT2-R expression in the adrenal medulla, we investigated the effects of modulating several ion channels on AT2-R expression in PC12W cells. Experiments were performed after 24 hours of serum depletion under subconfluent conditions. After 48 hours of treatment with various agonists or antagonists, the receptor density and mRNA level of AT2-Rs were quantified by 125I-[Sar1, Ile8]angiotensin II binding and Northern blot analysis. Ouabain (10 to 100 nmol/L) and insulin (10 to 100 nmol/L) dose-dependently increased receptor density and mRNA level. Analysis of the binding characteristics revealed that the ouabain-dependent increase in AT2-R levels was due to an increase in binding capacity without a change in the Kd value. These increases were blocked by lowering the Na+ concentration in the medium. A low concentration of the sodium ionophore monensin (10 nmol/L), the K+-channel blocker quinidine (10 micromol/L), and the ATP-sensitive K+-channel blockers tolbutamide (100 micromol/L) and glybenclamide (10 micromol/L) also significantly increased receptor density, but the ATP-sensitive K+-channel agonist cromakalim (100 micromol/L) decreased receptor density significantly (P<0.01). Nifedipine (10 micromol/L) decreased basal receptor density and completely blocked the increase in receptor density caused by these agents. The increase in receptor density caused by an increase in intracellular Na+ was accompanied by an increase in mRNA level, whereas the ATP-sensitive K+-channel blockers did not change mRNA level. Nifedipine slightly decreased mRNA level. These results suggest that AT2-R expression is sensitively regulated by intracellular cation levels. The change in intracellular Na+ level transcriptionally regulates AT2-R expression, whereas the K+-channel blocker-dependent upregulation appears to be at least in part posttranslational.  (+info)

Molecular dynamics of the sodium channel pore vary with gating: interactions between P-segment motions and inactivation. (8/16576)

Disulfide trapping studies have revealed that the pore-lining (P) segments of voltage-dependent sodium channels undergo sizable motions on a subsecond time scale. Such motions of the pore may be necessary for selective ion translocation. Although traditionally viewed as separable properties, gating and permeation are now known to interact extensively in various classes of channels. We have investigated the interaction of pore motions and voltage-dependent gating in micro1 sodium channels engineered to contain two cysteines within the P segments. Rates of catalyzed internal disulfide formation (kSS) were measured in K1237C+W1531C mutant channels expressed in oocytes. During repetitive voltage-clamp depolarizations, increasing the pulse duration had biphasic effects on the kSS, which first increased to a maximum at 200 msec and then decreased with longer depolarizations. This result suggested that occupancy of an intermediate inactivation state (IM) facilitates pore motions. Consistent with the known antagonism between alkali metals and a component of slow inactivation, kSS varied inversely with external [Na+]o. We examined the converse relationship, namely the effect of pore flexibility on gating, by measuring recovery from inactivation in Y401C+E758C (YC/EC) channels. Under oxidative conditions, recovery from inactivation was slower than in a reduced environment in which the spontaneous YC/EC cross-link is disrupted. The most prominent effects were slowing of a component with intermediate recovery kinetics, with diminution of its relative amplitude. We conclude that occupancy of an intermediate inactivation state facilitates motions of the P segments; conversely, flexibility of the P segments alters an intermediate component of inactivation.  (+info)

Sodium movement across the luminal membrane of the toad bladder is the rate-limiting step for active transepithelial transport. Recent studies suggest that changes in intracellular sodium regulate the Na permeability of the luminal border, either directly or indirectly via increases in cell calcium induced by the high intracellular sodium. To test these proposals, we measured Na movement across the luminal membrane (th Na influx) and found that it is reduced when intracellular Na is increased by ouabain or by removal of external potassium. Removal of serosal sodium also reduced the influx, suggesting that the Na gradient across the serosal border rather than the cell Na concentration is the critical factor. Because in tissues such as muscle and nerve a steep transmembrane sodium gradient is necessary to maintain low cytosolic calcium, it is possible that a reduction in the sodium gradient in the toad bladder reduces luminal permeability by increasing the cell calcium activity. We found that the ...
The values of membrane action potentials and maximum depolarization rates of single muscle fibers in normal Tyrode solution and in low sodium solutions containing as little as 20 per cent of the sodium chloride were measured with intracellular microelectrodes. Under these conditions the membrane potential remains unchanged up to 36 per cent of [Na+]out concentration, whereas the overshoot of the action potential varies linearly with the logarithm of the external sodium concentration. The maximum depolarization rate is a linear function of the external sodium concentration. The results obtained support the ionic theory for sodium and the independence principle for sodium current related to the external sodium concentration.. ...
No, not quite. You are on the right lines, but incorrect in thinking that intracellular sodium concentration is higher. At the resting phase of a neuron, there is less sodium inside the cell and more sodium outside the cell. An ATPase sodium potassium pump is constantly pumping 3 sodium ions outside the cell for every 2 potassium cells that enter the cell. For voltage gated sodium channels to open, there must be a significant change in voltage, which can be triggered by the binding of neurotransmitter to receptors for example. This triggers the sodium channels open and sodium will flood into the cell due to a high concentration gradient (because there are more sodium outside than inside) but also due to an electrical gradient (the neuron is more negative on the inside; positive sodium ions will be attracted to the inside).. Because sodium is flooding into the cell, this will cause the membrane potential to become more positive (depolarised) and will eventually reach an action potential (30mV). ...
The results of this preliminary study confirm previous findings that preascitic cirrhotic patients have subtle sodium retention when placed on a 200 mmol sodium as opposed to a 100 mmol sodium per day intake,1 2 23 manifested as a reduced urinary sodium excretion, associated with suppression of systemic RAAS in the supine posture. The acute use of a low dose angiotensin II receptor antagonist resulted in normalisation of this subtle sodium handling abnormality in preascitic cirrhotic patients, despite unchanged renal and systemic haemodynamics.. A 200 mmol sodium per day diet was chosen for this study for several reasons. Preascitic cirrhotic patients have previously been shown to come into a steady state of subtle sodium retention after four days of this sodium intake,2 and therefore the study would not require a long run in period. Secondly, this level of sodium intake, although higher than that contained in the usual no added salt diet of 100-130 mmol sodium per day that the patients were ...
1. Sodium movement across the porcine aortic arch in vitro is greater from the intimal to the medial surface than in the reverse direction.. 2. A short-circuit current can be measured across the aortic arch and the calculated energy is greater than the energy required to support the net outward sodium movement, suggesting the possibility of active transport of other ions.. 3. Net sodium movement is not significantly altered by an adverse gradient on the outside (medial side) but is reduced by a gradient in the opposite direction.. 4. Sodium retention within the tissue is increased by a gradient on the medial side.. 5. The movement of [14C]inulin is greater from the medial to the intimal surface, suggesting greater porosity on the medial side. A slight rise in both total tissue fluid and extracellular fluid occurred when the sodium concentration on the medial side of the preparation was increased. This did not occur with the sodium concentration increased on the intimal side. The changes were ...
There is abundant evidence that sodium intake is related to blood pressure. However, the relationship varies between individuals and is probably determined by renal sodium handling. We investigated clinic and ambulatory blood pressure in relation to interactions between sodium dietary intake and renal handling, as assessed by 24-hour urinary sodium excretion and endogenous lithium clearance, respectively. We calculated fractional excretion of lithium and fractional distal reabsorption rate of sodium, as markers of proximal and distal sodium handling, respectively. The 766 subjects included 379 men and 478 ambulatory hypertensive patients. They were never treated (n=697) or did not take antihypertensive medication for ≥2 weeks (n=69). In adjusted analyses, none of the associations of urinary sodium excretion, fractional excretion of lithium, and fractional distal reabsorption rate of sodium with clinic or ambulatory blood pressure were statistically significant (P≥0.09). However, there was ...
1. A study has been made of the interaction between Na+ and K+ on the adenosine triphosphatase activity of erythrocyte ghosts, and on the K+ influx and Na+ efflux of intact erythrocytes. The adenosine triphosphatase activity and the ion movements were greater at a low external K+ concentration in the absence of Na+ than they were in the presence of 150mm-Na+. The inhibition by external Na+ of K+ influx had an inhibitory constant of 5-10mm. 2. Activation by K+ of kidney microsomal adenosine triphosphatase was retarded by Na+, and activation by Na+ was retarded by K+. Fragmented erythrocyte membranes behaved similarly. 3. These observations suggest that there is competition between Na+ and K+ at the K+-sensitive site of the membrane.. ...

Level of salt intake has an important impact in patients with high blood pressure or congestive heart failure. Despite this there is no convenient way for doctors or patients to assess their salt intake other than diet recall, which is unreliable, or measurement of sodium excretion in a 24 hour collection of urine, which is very inconvenient. As a result, salt intake is not monitored in most patients.. 2 innovations might enable a more convenient assessment of salt intake. A titrator stick that measures chloride ion concentration (chloride and sodium concentrations correlate strongly with each other), and a titrator stick that measures urine creatinine. The latter enables estimation of 24 hour excretion from a single sample of urine. In assessing sodium intake, a measurement that provides an approximation of urine sodium intake would be of considerable clinical value. In this study, we shall compare the estimation of urine sodium excretion measured by a laboratory with estimation of sodium ...

Hypertension accompanying diabetes mellitus may involve abnormalities in at least two major blood pressure-regulating systems: the body sodium-fluid volume state and cardiovascular reactivity. In metabolically stable nonazotemic diabetes, exchangeable sodium is increased by 10% on average, regardless of age, insulin dependence or nondependence, or the presence or absence of diabetic retinopathy or clinical nephropathy (proteinuria greater than or equal to 0.3 g/24 hr). Possible contributing mechanisms include renal sodium retention and an extravascular shift of fluid and sodium; intracellular accumulation is not excluded. Circulatory volume is normal or low and the total exchangeable sodium/blood volume ratio increased. In hypertensive diabetes, the latter abnormality is particularly pronounced; systolic pressure tended to correlate with exchangeable sodium (r = 0.47, p less than 0.001) and diastolic pressure with the plasma sodium/potassium ratio (r = 0.25, p less than 0.05). Plasma ...

In 2005--2006, an estimated 29% of U.S. adults had hypertension (i.e., high blood pressure), and another 28% had prehypertension (1). Hypertension increases the risk for heart disease and stroke (2), the first and third leading causes of death in the United States (3). Greater consumption of sodium can increase the risk for hypertension (4). The main source of sodium in food is salt (sodium chloride [NaCl]); uniodized salt is 40% sodium by weight. In 2005--2006, the estimated average intake of sodium among persons in the United States aged ,2 years was 3,436 mg/day (5). In 2005, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and U.S. Department of Agriculture recommended that adults in the United States should consume no more than 2,300 mg/day of sodium (equal to approximately 1 tsp of salt), but those in specific groups (i.e., all persons with hypertension, all middle-aged and older adults, and all blacks) should consume no more than 1,500 mg/day of sodium (6). To estimate the proportion of ...
Fluxes of monovalent ions through the multiple pathways of the plasma membrane are highly interdependent, and their assessment by direct measurement is difficult or even impossible. Computation of the entire flux balance helps to identify partial flows and study the functional expression of individual transporters. Our previous computation of unidirectional fluxes in real cells ignored the ubiquitous cotransporters NKCC and KCC. Here, we present an analysis of the entire balance of unidirectional Na+, K+, and Cl- fluxes through the plasma membrane in human lymphoid U937 cells, taking into account not only the Na/K pump and electroconductive channels but all major types of cotransporters NC, NKCC, and KCC. Our calculations use flux equations based on the fundamental principles of macroscopic electroneutrality of the system, water balance, and the generally accepted thermodynamic dependence of ion fluxes on the driving force, and they do not depend on hypotheses about the molecular structure of the

The sodium urine test examines the quantity of salt (sodium) in urine.Sodium in urine levels are typically measured in individuals who have irregular blood sodium levels to help identify whether an imbalance is from. For instance, taking in too much sodium or losing too much sodium. Urine sodium examination is also used to determine if a person with high blood pressure is taking too much salt. It is often used in patients with abnormal kidney tests to help identify the cause of kidney damage that can help to specify treatment.Medical Tests Analyzer labtest bloodtest What does the test result mean?
As more processed foods hit our shelves and as obesity rates continue to soar, it almost seems as though sodium levels would have continued to increase, not necessarily stay the same. Yet, after multiple studies were reviewed, all occuring between 1957 and 2003, it appears that 3700 milligrams of sodium was consistently consumed over the years. Of course, other measures of our sodium intake dont necessarily reflect the same pattern. In fact, the NHANES, or National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, does indeed show an increase in salt consumption. The biggest difference between these survey results and that observed in the Harvard study is that the NHANES relies on food records where as the Harvard study took a look at urinary sodium output which is supposedly more accurate.. Current guidelines for sodium intake are 2300 milligrams a day for healthy adults and 1500 milligrams a day for those at risk of high blood pressure. Thats quite a difference. And although this message has been ...
The results from our meta-analyses of 36 randomised controlled trials in adults show that a reduction in sodium intake reduces systolic and diastolic blood pressure. These results are consistent with five previous systematic reviews that reported reduced sodium intake decreased blood pressure in adults with and without hypertension.8 16 17 18 19 The quality of the evidence was high. A body of evidence from randomised controlled trials begins the GRADE categorisation at high quality and is then assessed on a set of characteristics that may reduce that quality. This body of evidence was not downgraded as there was no indication of serious risk of bias, inconsistency, indirectness, or imprecision across all studies. As heterogeneity was suggested in the meta-analyses we carefully examined the results. The χ2 test suggested the potential for considerable heterogeneity (large χ2, P,0.001).29 However, a large number of studies, as in this review, often leads to the detection of a statistically ...

An essential mineral that our bodies regulate and conserve. Excess sodium retention increases the fluid volume (edema) and low sodium leads to less fluid and relative dehydration. The adult body averages a total content of over 100 grams of sodium, of which a surprising one-third is in bone. A small amount of sodium does get into cell interiors, but this represents only about ten percent of the body content. The remaining 57 percent or so of the body sodium content is in the fluid immediately surrounding the cells, where it is the major cation (positive ion). The role of sodium in the extracellular fluid is maintaining osmotic equilibrium (the proper difference in ions dissolved in the fluids inside and outside the cell) and extracellular fluid volume. Sodium is also involved in nerve impulse transmission, muscle tone and nutrient transport. All of these functions are interrelated with potassium. ...

Signal transduction is the molecular basis for cellular communication. Complex networks of intracellular molecules enable cells to receive signals from their environment and to modify their behavior in response to these signals. Signaling molecules are interconnected, and depending on how they are linked together they can form different types of networks. We have recently described a novel network of proteins that becomes activated by increases in cell sodium permeability and that regulates active sodium transport. Because each component of this sodium-sensing network so far described have been independently associated with multiple and essential cell functions, our work on the network topology and modeling is of importance because it will help us to understand the networks role and complexity when transforming the sodium signal into transcription activation and gene expression leding to changes in myocardial- and/or renal cells growth.. Also, understanding the function and relevance of the ...
J.L.] While trying to provoke an always enjoyable give-and-take with Seamus McSeamus, I intentionally worded my comment so that those who are so inclined would overreact. Fact is, I never offered an opinion on the pros-or-cons of sodium (most commonly in the form of sodium chloride) intake. I only poked good-natured fun at the idea of playing chemist at the dinner table. :-). However, as you may recall from Psychology 101, sodium is ABSOLUTELY necessary for the proper communication between neurons. In addition, your muscles simply could not contract without it. There are any number of bodily functions that depend on proper levels of sodium in the blood and tissues. It really isnt the Evil Element weve been conditioned to believe. I mean, there really is a reason saline drips are s-o-p in hospitals.. That being said, TOO MUCH sodium IS no good. Quiet as its kept, I rarely add any kind of salt to foods, as I prepare them or at the table. When I do use *salt*, it is usually potassium chloride or ...

A sodium blood test may be used to detect low sodium or high sodium levels as part of a health checkup or to help evaluate conditions such as dehydration, edema or heart, lung or kidney diseases. Sodium is an electrolyte that is vital to normal nerve and muscle function and helps regulate the amount of fluid in the body.
With respect to model development, the importance of the absolute Na+ transport rate derives from the constraint it imposes on the magnitude of rheogenic transport. The only reported cellular electrophysiology on IMCD is that of Stanton (47), who found a small transepithelial electrical PD and a high fractional apical resistance. Admittedly, these findings could, in part, be an artifact of the in vitro preparation and its low reabsorptive Na+ flux. In the calculations of this model, only when channel-mediated luminal membrane Na+ reabsorption was less than 25% of the total was the fractional apical resistance greater than 85%. Although one early determination of transepithelial PD was −11 mV (37), subsequent investigations have shown it close to zero (16, 19). Indeed, the transepithelial PD of this model, −12 mV, is high and is attributable largely to the component of rheogenic Na+ transport. This suggests that the bulk of Na reabsorption is electrically silent, as via a thiazide-sensitive ...

What Makes up a VW Turbo Diesel ! There are a few differences between the Turbo and the Non-Turbo Motors. 1- Starting with the Head The regular head is Cast in aluminum-alloy. While the Turbo has a stronger, sodium-injected alloy. I seen sodium and tasted sodium ( not by choice ) Just like Loren I have a bit of problems with this one . I know it is a better alloy but sodium ? ---interesting . Must be a typo. IMHO after reading the SAE papers on the crank ---I say a lot different. But I still say with care --a NA crank will do the job. Sodium melts at 97.7 degree C --- go figure. Sodium looks like low temp solder and can be cut with a knife. Hagar. PS: How do I identify the tortional damper on my Turbo ?. A number of changes were made to the crankshaft. The front end of the crankshaft was reinforced. The highly loaded crank-pin, at cylinder 4, has its radius induction hardened and the oil hole ground while radii at the other pins are roll-hardened. A torsional vibration damper is used ...

Researchers found that obesity and excess consumption of salt may be causing an increase in blood pressure among children and adolescents.
1. Erythrocyte sodium, sodium transport (ouabain-sensitive efflux rate of sodium, oMosNa, and ouabain-sensitive efflux rate constant of sodium, oMosNa), sodium-potassium activated ouabain-sensitive adenosine triphosphatase (Na+, K+-ATPase) activity and [3H]ouabain-binding capacity were measured in 15 patients with chronic renal failure and in 10 healthy subjects.. 2. As a group, patients with chronic renal failure had a lower erythrocyte sodium and oMosNa compared with healthy subjects.. 3. When patients were divided according to their erythrocyte sodium (greater or less than 4 mmol/kg of cells), in the group of patients whose erythrocyte sodium was less than 4 mmol/kg of cells (group A) the oMosNa was higher than that in healthy subjects and the oMosNa, Na+, K+-ATPase activity and [3H]ouabain-binding capacity were the same as those in healthy subjects. In the subgroup of patients with renal failure whose erythrocyte sodium content was greater than 4 mmol/kg of cells (group B) the oMosNa was ...
We have investigated effects of altered extracellular sodium, intracellular sodium concentration, and membrane potential on the contractile responses of rat isolated mesenteric small arteries (internal diameter ca. 200 microns), when mounted as ring preparations on an isometric myograph. To avoid possible neural effects, all vessels were denervated in vitro using 6-hydroxydopamine. In unstimulated vessels, exposure to low-Na+ solutions (25 mM sodium, sucrose, or choline-substituted) did not cause any response nor did exposure to ouabain (1 mM) for 1 hour [when intracellular sodium concentration increased to 64 mmol/(liter-cell)]. However, a response was obtained if ouabain-exposed vessels were subjected to low-sodium solutions (ca. 15% of maximal response). The magnitude of the response was dependent on the ratio of intracellular to extracellular sodium and was not inhibitable by the calcium blockers, felodipine (1 nM) or D600 (10 microM). This response could therefore be explained in terms of ...
At the hospital its important to monitoring body weight and the intake and output of fluids. Fluid restriction is only necessary if the serum sodium concentration drops below 120 mmol per liter. It is also important to determine the sodium balance which can be approximated by monitoring intake(diet, sodium-containing medications and intravenous solutions) and urinary excretion because, a negative sodium balance is a predictor of weight loss.. A reasonable goal for a patient without peripheral edema is a negative sodium balance with a weight loss of 0.5 Kg per day.. Drugs. Most patient with cirrhotic ascites respond to dietary sodium restriction and diuretics. The combination of spironolactone and furosemide is the most effective regimen for rapid diminution of ascites. The starting dose is 100 mg of Spironolactone and 40 mg of Furosemide together in the morning. If there is no decrease in body weight or increase in urinary sodium excretion after two or three days, the doses of both drugs should ...
Research indicates that an inversion can be understood in a number of ways. The different ways of understanding an inversion overlap and relate to one another. Let us discuss them one by one.. Adrenal Burnout. The sodium/potassium ratio is called the vitality ratio. A low ratio is indicative of an exhaustion stage of stress. A high sod-ium/potassium ratio is an alarm or early stage of stress. As the ratio declines, the body moves into an exhaustion stage of stress.. The sodium level is controlled by aldosterone. As adrenal activity declines, sodium falls in relation to potassium. Potassium is more closely tied to the level of the glucocorticoid hormones (cortisone and cortisol). Hans Selye, M.D. noted that cortisol levels rise in the exhaustion stage of stress.. Glucose Intolerance. An inversion is a clear indica-tor of glucose intolerance. The body is unable to adequately burn glucose in the Krebs and glycol-ysis cycles adequately. This contributes to fatigue, cravings for sweets and many ...
Erythrocyte membrane alterations mirror those of vascular smooth muscle and renal tubular cell membrane. The interaction between adducin and Na-K pump is the most likely biochemical mechanism responsible for the increased tubular Na reabsorption and hypertension in Milan hypertensive strain (MHS) rats. To substantiate this hypothesis in humans, we tested to see if α-adducin Gly460Trp genotype is associated with erythrocyte sodium transport rate in a new cohort of n268 never-treated North Sardinian primary hypertensives. Plasma renin activity and blood pressure response to hydrochlorothiazide were also measured to evaluate the relationship between sodium transport rate and two intermediate phenotypes with a higher degree of genetic complexity. Na-K pump, Na-K-Cl cotransport, and Li-Na countertransport at Vmax were faster (P,0.0001), whereas intracellular Na concentration was lower (P,0.0001) in patients carrying one or two 460Trp alleles. Such behavior was mirrored by opposite changes of ...

The effect of ionic strength and dissolved wood components (DWC) in form of industrial black liquor on the delignification rate and the brightness of the unbleached softwood kraft pulp has been investigated. A technique with a high liquor-to-wood ratio (75 L/kg) a so-called constant composition cook was used to separate the effects of the different parameters. The study showed that an increase in the ionic strength led to a decrease in the rate of delignification and gave a more coloured pulp, where as the presence of DWC gave a more coloured pulp and an increase in the delignification rate.. The influence of the ionic strength and DWC on the bleachability of the softwood kraft pulp in an ECF-sequence (D(EOP)DD) was also investigated. The results show that the bleachability i.e. consumption of bleaching chemicals to reach a certain brightness, was not affected by the ionic strength during the cook. The addition of DWC, on the other hand, increased the consumption of bleaching chemicals to reach ...
Another way to view this is that the high Na/K ratio, provided it is within a normal range between about 2 and 10, is indicative of a person who is responding well to their environment. A lower or higher ratio indicates abnormal responses that are less healthful. The exception is if the circumstances demand a different response. This could either be one of extreme fight-or-flight (a very high Na/K ratio) or one of paralysis or fright that demands that one just stop and rest, which could cause a low Na/K ratio ...
As the sodium/potassium ratio rises on a hair mineral analysis above about 5 or perhaps 6, more symptoms involving this ratio are likely to arise. These may include a tendency for acute stress, inflammation or pain somewhere in the body. Other symptoms may include water retention, edema, and perhaps a higher blood pressure or a labile or fluctuating blood pressure due to water retention and/or kidney stress. These are among the prominent physical symptoms that come with higher aldosterone levels in relation to cortisol, for example ...

Hyponatremia is an electrolyte imbalance in which the sodium ion concentration in the plasma is lower than normal. Normal serum sodium levels are between approximately 135 and 145 mEq/L. Hyponatremia is generally defined as a serum level of less than 135 mEq/L. Shown on the left is a normal brain. On the right, serum sodium ion level is less than 130 mEq/L and water is drawn into the cells causing the brain to swell. Labelled illustration. - Stock Image C027/6721
The effect of sodium balance on systemic arterial blood pressure and the renal response to intravenous infusion of prostaglandin A1 (PGA1) was studied in hypertensive subjects. PGA1 (0.4 µg/kg min-1) was infused for 1 hour in ten hypertensive subjects who were receiving a constant diet containing 40 mEq of sodium and 80 mEq of potassium. During PGA1 infusion a significant fall in both systolic and diastolic arterial blood pressure occurred. There was a significant rise in urine flow rate, renal plasma flow, and urine sodium excretion; plasma renin activity (PRA) rose slightly but not significantly. Eight of the ten subjects and one additional subject were then placed on furosemide (80 mg/day) for 1 week. In all subjects, a significant weight loss and a rise in midday PRA occurred with the administration of the diuretic. Systolic blood pressure fell, but diastolic pressure was unchanged. Following salt depletion with furosemide, PGA1 infusion studies were repeated. PGA1 then produced no ...
Solutions containing sodium ions should be used with great care, if at all, in patients with congestive heart failure, severe renal insufficiency and in clinical states in which there exists edema with sodium retention.. Excessive administration of potassium-free solutions may result in significant hypokalemia.. In patients with diminished renal function, administration of solutions containing sodium ions may result in sodium retention.. The intravenous administration of these solutions can cause fluid and/or solute overloading resulting in dilution of serum electrolyte concentrations, overhydration, congested states or pulmonary edema.. The risk of dilutional states is inversely proportional to the electrolyte concentrations of administered parenteral solutions. The risk of solute overload causing congested states with peripheral and pulmonary edema is directly proportional to the electrolyte concentrations of such solutions. ...

Sodium is an essential component to many aspects of human performance. Sodium is readily available to the body through the consumption and digestion of the salt, the mineral composed of sodium and chloride. Salt is expressed as the chemical equation NaCl, of which sodium is 40% of the composition.. The usual concern regarding sodium and its impact on health is the consumption of excess sodium, given the dietary practices prevalent throughout many parts of the world. Most commercially prepared foods have salt or a similar sodium compound in their formulation. Elevated levels of sodium place significant stresses on the bodys fluid and blood volume balance. Sodium is the major underlying cause of transient high blood pressure and chronic hypertension present in a significant proportion of the adult population of most Western countries. As the body does not store water-soluble sodium for lengthy periods, the sodium must be disposed of and excreted through the production of urine in the renal ...

Pls excuse my english, Im european. Anyone with kidney disease whom also suffer from low sodium? I have this very rare condition in which my body will not contain sodium. If I add sodium orally I get severe stommach pain, need to have it intranevously. Also suffer with diarrhea when sodium is too low. Im stuck in hospital and they cant give a diagnosis. I have epilepsy (since 5yrs) and are allready aware that Trileptal (and likes) can reduce sodium level. This is more complex than that. I have allways been low on sodium, even before epilepsy, but didnt know until now. I think it was the other way around, that low sodium gave me epilepsy. But why do I have this sodium condition? I have pigmentation lines in handpalms and think it could be kidneys? Anyone ...
Sodium transport across the tight epithelia of Na+ reabsorbing tissues such as the distal part of the kidney nephron and colon is the major factor determining total-body Na+ levels, and thus, long-term blood pressure. Aldosterone plays a major role in sodium and potassium metabolism by binding to epithelial mineralocorticoid receptors (MR) in the renal collecting duct cells localized in the distal nephron, promoting sodium resorption and potassium excretion. Aldosterone enters a target cell and binds MR, which translocates into the nucleus and regulates gene transcription. Activation of MR leads to increased expression of Sgk-1, which phosphorylates Nedd4-2, an ubiquitin-ligase which targets ENAC to proteosomal degradation. Phosphorylated Nedd4-2 dissociates from ENAC, increasing its apical membrane abundance. Activation of MR also leads to increased expression of Na+/K+-ATPase, thus causing a net increase in sodium uptake from the renal filtrate. The specificity of MR for aldosterone is ...
Q. Considering the tremendous amount of concern currently being expressed about salt/sodium usage, I`m puzzled when I find a high sodium content in frozen dinners made for the weight-conscious market. A recently purchased Lean Cuisine dinner contained in excess of 1,100 milligrams of sodium. Why? -- Gloria Williamson, Margate, N.J. A. ``Fourteen of the current 21 Lean Cuisine entrees,`` says Marguerite Dannemiller, communications specialist with Stouffer`s Foods, ``contain less than 1,000 milligrams of sodium. Some are as low as 460 milligrams. Many health professionals find this an appropriate level for people who are following moderately sodium-restricted diets. Unfortunately, people on severely restricted programs (less than 2,000 milligrams a day) may not be able to include any processed foods in their menus. In many instances, a severe reduction in sodium results in products, which consumers find unacceptable because they simply don`t taste good.`` The sodium in the dinner you bought, which you

NaChBac was the first discovered bacterial sodium voltage-dependent channel, yet computational studies are still limited due to the lack of a crystal structure. In this work, a pore-only construct built using the NavMs template was investigated using unbiased molecular dynamics and metadynamics. The potential of mean force (PMF) from the unbiased run features four minima, three of which correspond to sites IN, CEN, and HFS discovered in NavAb. During the run, the selectivity filter (SF) is spontaneously occupied by two ions, and frequent access of a third one is often observed. In the innermost sites IN and CEN, Na+ is fully hydrated by six water molecules and occupies an on-axis position. In site HFS sodium interacts with a glutamate and a serine from the same subunit and is forced to adopt an off-axis placement. Metadynamics simulations biasing one and two ions show an energy barrier in the SF that prevents single-ion permeation. An analysis of the permeation mechanism was performed both ...
NaV1.8 is a voltage gated sodium channel mainly expressed on the membrane of thin diameter c-fibre neurons involved in the transmission of pain signals. In these neurons NaV1.8 is essential for the propagation of action potentials. NaV1.8 is located in lipid rafts along the axons of sensory neurons and disruption of these lipid rafts leads to NaV1.8 dependant conduction failure. Using computational modelling, I show that the clustering of NaV1.8 channels in lipid rafts along the axon of thin diameter neurons is energetically advantageous and requires fewer channels to conduct action potentials. During an action potential NaV1.8 currents across the membrane in these thin axons are large enough to dramatically change the sodium ion concentration gradient and thereby void the assumptions upon which the cable equation is based. Using scanning electron microscopy NaV1.8 is seen to be clustered, as are lipid raft marker proteins, on neurites at scales below 200nm. FRET signals show that the lipid raft ...
Serum sodium:potassium (Na:K) ratios are often reported in biochemical studies of dogs, although their value has not been assessed. The aims of this study were to identify diseases associated with a low Na:K ratio in dogs and to compare their prevalence with the prevalence in dogs from the same referral hospital with normal Na:K ratios. A total of 238 dogs with a Na:K ratio less than 27 were identified from medical records. Sample contamination with edta was suspected in 74 cases (31 per cent) and these and two cases that had been supplemented with potassium were removed from the analysis. The remaining 162 cases and 147 control dogs were divided into five categories depending on the organ system affected. Among the cases there were significantly more in the endocrine category than among the control dogs. Hypoadrenocorticism was the most single common cause of a low Na:K ratio and affected 27 (16·7 per cent) of the cases. Other clinical problems associated with low Na:K ratios included ...
Its no surprise that reading a label for sodium content is not only wise, but necessary whenever youre on a fluid restricted diet. There are actually several reasons you dont want to consume an excessive amount of sodium on a renal diet or while living with chronic kidney disease. Reading a label for sodium content is a small price to pay to stay healthy and maintain your current quality of life (if not to improve your quality of life).

You may have noticed that recipes that I share on this blog, and the most of the recipes that are posted on the Wildwood website call for lower sodium ingredients when possible. This is because the average American gets too much sodium in their diet. While sodium does have some important roles in the body such as controlling fluid balance, as well as maintaining blood volume, too much has a negative impact on most people. It is especially important that we help children limit their sodium intake. Not only have foods high in sodium been linked with increased intake of sugary drinks, a recent study showed that eating smaller amounts of salt each day as a teenager could reduce high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke in adulthood. The American Heart Association recommends no more than 1,500 mg of sodium per day for most people, while the average person gets more than 5 times this amount! Interestingly enough, the majority of sodium in our diets comes from processed and restaurant foods, not ...

Background Hypertension is a growing concern, not only in South Africa, but worldwide. Sodium (salt) intake has been proven to have a major effect on the development of cardiovascular diseases and hypertension. It will therefore be beneficial to decrease the amount of sodium added to certain foodstuffs to relieve the burden of disease in the country and ultimately sustain a reduced consumption of sodium in the diet. Aim The aim of the study is to investigate if the food industries are making changes to the sodium content of foodstuffs over a 14-month period as listed in the Regulations (identified in R214:20 March 2013), before the first target date of June 2016. Study design This study is a descriptive, observational study. Methods Data collection took place at two well-known retailers over a 14-month period (March 2014 and May 2015). Photographs of foodstuffs were taken and data was statistically analysed regarding minimum to maximum ranges, mean and standard deviation of sodium per 100g as ...
If your dog has been diagnosed with Hypernatremia then it means your dog has too much sodium in his system. While sodium is important to help regulate blood pressure, nerve impulse transmission, blood volume, and the balance of acid/base in the body, too much can cause symptoms and issues such as unusual thirst, disorientation, confusion, diarrhea, vomiting, coma, and seizures.. Treating high sodium will require regular lab testing because there could be an underlying cause such as a heart disease. Thus, before you try any low sodium diet, it is important to understand the exact diagnosis of your dog because if it is caused by a heart disease, you will have further customize the diet to avoid causing more problems like kidney failure or fluid in the lungs.. According to the Board on Agriculture and Natural Resources, a 33 pound healthy dog must take no more than 100 mg of sodium daily. A dog with heart disease should take much lower amounts because sodium causes water retention which will make ...
U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Helping Consumers Reduce Sodium Intake On this page:. Seeking a Gradual Reduction Whats a Consumer to Do? Most Americans consume way too much sodium, with salt (sodium chloride) being the most common form. That can be a serious health hazard, because excess sodium consumption contributes to the development and escalation of high blood pressure, a leading cause of heart disease, kidney disease, and stroke.. Research shows that Americans consume on average about 3,300 milligrams (mg) of sodium every day. The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends a reduction of sodium intake to less than 2,300 mg daily.. And those age 51 and older, and people of any age who are African-American or have high blood pressure, diabetes or chronic kidney disease should further reduce sodium intake to 1,500 mg daily. This amount meets your essential need for sodium. These populations comprise about half the U.S. population.. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ...

Background Current measurements of dietary and urinary sodium are fraught with methodological difficulties. Dietary methods tend to underestimate sodium consumption due to under-reporting of discretionary sources of salt (added at the table, or during cooking). The 24-hour urine collection method which is considered the gold standard is burdensome and potentially limited by under-collection. Several methods have been used to predict 24-hour sodium excretion from spot urine samples, including arithmetic extrapolation and the application of predictive formulae based on spot sodium to creatinine ratios as a means of controlling for urinary concentration, including those of Tanaka and Kawasaki. However the use of these methods in analytical epidemiological research is controversial. The aim of this study was to validate diet and urinary excretion derived estimates of sodium intake against those derived from 24-hour urine collections in an Irish manufacturing workplace sample. ...
Natalies sodium levels have to be monitored, so Noemi, the lab tech was called in to take a quick blood sample for the test (note the silver bandage on Natalies right middle finger). She also has a daughter named Natalie, which is a very special name. Sodium levels look good. There was an initial concern because Natalies urine output was high, which is a sign that sodium may be off - and this is a particular concern with brain surgery.. ...
According to the present invention, the types and the stages of the ovarian disorders or the presence of pregnancy may be diagnosed from the results of measured sodium ion concentration on vaginal mucosa and change therein, based on the impedance value between the electrodes 14 and 14 on the vaginal mucosa, while compressing the electrodes 14 and 14 on the vaginal mucosa in mammals.
Limit total sodium intake to less than 2400mg per day by consuming less than 1 teaspoon of salt per day. Besides table salt, high sodium levels are found in packet soups, stock cubes, gravies, processed cheese, many breakfast cereals, bread, salty snacks and tinned food. Reduce the intake of those foods, remove the salt cellar from the table, and gradually reduce added salt in food preparation. Food may taste bland originally and the use of lemon juice, herbs and spices are encouraged as alternative seasoning. Taste adaptation to reduce sodium intake occurs with time.
