2 หัวใจวาย อัมพฤกษ์ อัมพาต ไตวาย ความดันโลหิตสูงทำให้เกิดโรคแทรกซ้อน The detection and treatment of high BP and its associated CVD risk should be a key focus of health-care policy, as patients with uncontrolled hypertension can develop serious complications in several end-organ systems, including blood vessels, heart, brain, kidneys and eyes. This diagram summarises some of the end-organ complications and consequences associated with persistent raised blood pressure. Untreated prolonged hypertension puts a strain on the arteries, arterioles and heart, and may have fatal consequences. The first sign of high blood pressure may be end-organ damage, due to damage of small arterioles within the organ.ไตวาย

Contrary to what many people think, the salt shaker is not the major contributorThe vast majority of sodium consumed, about 77 percent, comes from restaurant and processed foods. Only about 12 percent is naturally occurring in fruits, vegetables and whole grainsWhile some processed foods, such as cured meat or canned soups may be easily recognized as salty, many other processed and prepared foods are substantial sources of sodium because they are foods frequently consumed, such as bread and cereal.How do we know how much sodium is in our foods, is through analysis of foods and datasystems. Is critical that these are updated to reflect progress or lack of progress in reducing the sodium content of foodsExtra background information:(note – this slide draws from an older study with a small # of participants, there is nothing new available that captures salt added at the table or while cooking. We don’t have reason to believe this is off, and with less people cooking the contribution of sodium from processed and restaurant foods is likely greater)Sodium chloride is the chemical name for salt.Sodium is a component of salt; table salt is 40 percent sodium and 60 percent chloride. One level U.S. teaspoonful of salt contains approximately 6,200 mg sodium chloride (salt), or approximately 2,400 mg sodium.It is the sodium portion of salt that is important to people concerned about high blood pressure.The words “salt” and “sodium” are often used interchangeably although they are not exactly the same. For example, the Nutrition Facts Panel uses “sodium” while the front of the package may say “low salt.”Ninety percent of the sodium consumed is in the form of salt -Other sources include food additives such as baking soda. A small amount is naturally occurring in foods like fruits and vegetables.Salt is used by the food industry in every food category to enhance pleasant flavors and/or mask unpleasant flavors, as a preservative, for moisture retention and to provide bulk and uniformity in poultry.Some extra language:The presence of salt in the food supply has become ubiquitous. Prior to refrigeration, the benefits of salt outweighed the potential negative effects. However, after the advent of refrigeration this was reversed and the negative effects began to far outweigh any benefits it may offer. Salt is not just in foods one would think of as “salty” such as chips, pickles or cured meat. There is also a significant amount of salt in foods like cereal, bread and condiments. This is part of what makes sodium reduction so challenging.Source: Mattes RD, Donnelly, D. Relative contributions of dietary-sodium sources. J Am Coll Nutr Aug;10(4):383–93.

35 Sodium Recommendation 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA) recommendation: <2,300 mg/day.“Specific populations” recommended to limit intake to 1,500 mg/day:HypertensivesBlacksMiddle-aged (40) or older Americans“Specific populations”: 70% of American adults.Average intake: 3,466 mg/day.Generally, higher consumption of salt means higher blood pressure.Sodium intake is related to levels of blood pressure, the incremental rise in blood pressure with age, and the prevalence of hypertension across populations.Within the span of a few weeks, most people experience a reduction in blood pressure when salt intake is reduced.Currently, however, less than 10% of all Americans limit their sodium intake to within dietary recommendations. Among the specific populations, only 5% meet this target.Source: Ayala C, et al.

36 Canadian Best Practice Recommendations for Stroke Care, updated 2008 2.1 Sodium:The recommended daily sodium intake from all sources is the Adequate Intake by age. For persons 9-50 years, the Adequate Intake is 1500 mg. Adequate Intake decreases to 1300 mg for persons years and to 1200 mg for persons > 70 years. A daily upper limit of 2300mg should not be exceeded by any age group.See for sodium intake guidelinesThe recommended amounts of sodium from all sources is found in the following table, but never to exceed 2300 mgCMAJ 2008;179(12 Suppl):E1-E93 #2.136

Prolonged high sodium intake may reset thresholds determined by kidneys. (since this process is continually cycling, thresholds get reset by kidneys)Kidneys are less able to remove sodium as we age. (unsure of why this is)Genes (14) responsible for Mendelian forms of hypo- or hypertension are all involved in renal sodium handling. (validating that sodium plays a key role in BP)Low dietary potassium renal sodium retention B.P.Signaling pathway in vasculature responds to high sodium but does not regulate basal B.P. (Nat.

52 Sodium and Blood Pressure Evidence:Animal studiesHuman Genetic StudiesEpidemiological StudiesMigration studiesInterventional StudiesTreatment StudiesThere are numerous studies in the literature to link sodium to BP52
53 Animal Studies Chimps: 2 groups of 13 (age 5-18y) *Nature Med 1995; 1:Chimps: 2 groups of 13 (age 5-18y)Control group usual veg. & fruit diet, low Na+,high K+Intervention group fed increasing amounts of salt over 84 weeksInterventionChange in mean B.P. vs. controls5g/d 19 weeks+12 mmHg (systolic)10g/d 3 weeks, 15g/d 36 weeks+26 mmHg15g/d 26 weeks+33 mmHg0g/d 20 weeksControl levelsFor instance a study of chimps (evolution close to humans) were studied to see the effects of sodium on BP.Control group chimps ate their normal diet of veggies & fruit (low in sodium) while the intervention group was fed increasing amounts of salt over time.The results are astounding.The intervention group developed HTN at rate correlated to increasing amounts of ingested sodium. When taken off the sodium the BP returned to control levels.Note: Second study involved chimps with high BP, old, and overweight animals.Similar study (127 chimps) finds effect of Na+ on B.P. persists over 2 year time course (Circulation :1563).53
54 Treatment Study: DASH Sodium -7Randomized 412 adults (mixed B.P. status, racial groups, sexes) to:Control diet - low in fruit, veg and dairy, fat content typical of USDASH diet - high in fruit, veg and low-fat dairy, reduced fat contentConsume diet for consecutive 30 day periods in random order at each of 3 levels of saltInterventionChange in mean B.P. vs. control (systolic)Control dietDASH diet9g/d saltControl level- 6 mmHg6g/d salt- 2 mmHg- 7 mmHg3g/d salt- 9 mmHg-7 (NT)-11(HT)Similar study with humans, in two groups (one eating a typical NA diet and one eating according to the DASH diet).Both groups added 3 specific levels of salt to their diet.The results in change of BP were telling. When the sodium in their diet was decreased, BP fell in both groups.The group eating according to the DASH diet had an even greater reduction in BP.Interestingly those the HTN group had their BP affected even more.NEJM 2001; 344:3-1054

57 Sodium (salt) in our Diet Natural~15%Discretionary~15%Manufactured food processing~70%Health Minimum180 mg/dReference Standard**2,400 mg/d (6.1 g salt)Adequate Intake*1,500 mg/d (3.8 g salt)Tolerable Upper Intake*2,300 mg/d (5.8 g salt)This slide shows key values of salt in our diet.15% of the salt in our diet comes from natural sources. Another 15% is added by us (discretionary). The remaining 70% comes from the processed foods that we eat.There is a huge disparity between what we need and what we are getting:Sodium is essential for life. The health minimum is 180 mg/d. Tolerable upper limit is 2300 mg/dReference standard is outdated at 2400 mg/d. The recommended daily amount is 1500 mg/d yet the reference standard still exists on all our labels.3,000 – 4,000 mg/d (8-10 g salt)*Health Canada. Dietary Ref. Intake Reports**2003 labeling legislation57
