Early sodium intake and later blood pressure in preterm infants.

Author information

  • 1MRC Dunn Nutrition Unit, Cambridge.

Abstract

The relation between early salt intake and later hypertension is debated. As part of a larger feeding study, 347 preterm infants were randomly assigned to receive early diets differing grossly in sodium content. Feeding a high sodium preterm formula in the neonatal period did not influence arterial blood pressure at 18 months (corrected) age.
