Low-Birth-Weight Babies at Risk for Salt Sensitivity
Date:8/11/2008

ere's nearly a 50 percent chance of favorably affecting blood pressure by simply reducing salt intake in children born SGA and nearly a 40 percent chance for those born with LBW. These individuals can be determined very easily if their family physician just gets data on their births," Mohaupt said.

Among the other important study findings:

  • Salt sensitivity was inversely correlated to kidney size -- that is, smaller kidney size was associated with higher blood pressure. However, there was no association between kidney size and the organ's filtering abilities.
  • Kidneys in LBW children tended to be shorter and hold smaller volume compared to kidneys in normal birth weight children.
  • LBW children tend to be shorter than children of normal birth weight.

The study was published in the current issue of Hypertension.
