This study investigates the blood pressure (BP) 24-hour pattern in representative samples of 2 industrialized countries, Italy and Japan, showing different cultures in salt intake.
BP was monitored by means of a noninvasive ambulatory device whose readings were analyzed by means of chronobiometric procedures.
The results show that the 24-hour BP pattern is not substantially different in Italian and Japanese subjects.
In particuliar, the expected lower BP in the Italians was not detected despite their lower salt intake.
