Moore says that there is likely a subset of people sensitive to salt who would benefit from lowering sodium intake, but more research is needed to develop easier methods to screen for salt sensitivity and to determine appropriate guidelines for intakes of sodium and potassium in this salt-sensitive group of people.
Liu, 2004) The water sensitivity experiment results of Zhenbei area Chang 7 reservoir were as shown in Table 3; results of salt sensitivity were as illustrated in Figure 8.

Moreover, damage to the PM has been found to be associated with changes in membrane physical structure and/ or chemical properties, and thus increased salt sensitivity in response to salinity (Huang, 2006a).
Other hypertensive subjects who have low PRA and salt sensitivity may exhibit no response or even a mild pressor response to Mg supplementation.
This complex interaction is exemplified by the still controversial role of salt sensitivity in hypertensive patients (4).
Salt sensitivity is a condition in susceptible normotensive or hypertensive individuals in which a significant and sustained rise in mean arterial pressure (MAP) accompanies chronic high sodium chloride (salt) intake (1).
The decrease of [PHI]PSII and qP and stomatal conductance and the increase of NPQ in salt stressed Toccata confirm the higher salt sensitivity of this cultivar, where salinity compromises the light phase of photosynthesis and induces an increase of thermal dissipation in order to avoid photodamage.
Salt sensitivity is associated with the accumulation of sodium (Na+) in photosynthetic tissues of many plant species.
These foods also tend to be naturally low in salt which, for many people with salt sensitivity, can help them keep their blood pressure in check.
