In hypertensives, electrocardiographic left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease Animal and human studies suggest an association between left ventricular mass and dietary sodium (Na) intake. This study electrocardiographic LVH (S in VI + R in V5 > or = 3.5 mV). Blood pressure (BP), body in 40 otherwise healthy Korean patients with untreated essential hypertension on the standard Korean diet Among these variables, only Na excretion (mmol/day) was significantly different between those with and without LVH[LVH+:357+/-50, LVH-:268+/-25(p=0.04]. Thus, dietary sodium intake may be predictive of electrocardiographic LVH.
