Non-modulating essential hypertension
|Non-modulating essential hypertension|
Non-modulating essential hypertension is a form of salt-sensitive hypertension, where sodium intake does not modulate either adrenal or renal vascular responses to angiotensin II. Individuals with this subset have been termed non-modulators. They make up 25-30% of the hypertensive population.
