Abstract

Early withdrawing alcoholics exposed to a normal sodium intake experience positive Na balance and increase in blood pressure that is related to sodium sensitivity measured after long-term detoxification. This suggests that salt sensitivity plays a key role in blood pressure regulation in early withdrawing alcoholics.
