    Very mixed, as you can see here.

    Shame that no one referred to natriuresis (loss of sodium in urine, which can be excessive, so that urinary sodium may give a false indication of sodium intake or sodium need), or hyponatraemia (pathologically low blood sodium - a dangerous condition if severe) or specifically referred to the fact that ACE inhibitors (and angiotensin-receptor blockers?) cause increased natriuresis, so that if studies are looking at cardiac patients they need to correct for such use or maybe exclude such patients.

    WHY do they not use blood sodium instead of urinary sodium?
