The relationship of erythrocyte sodium-lithium countertransport to blood pressure and metabolic abnormalities in a sample of untreated middle-aged male workers.
To investigate the relationship between erythrocyte sodium-lithium countertransport and blood pressure in a randomly selected sample of untreated male workers and to evaluate the influence of a set of metabolic abnormalities commonly associated with hypertension on this relationship.
A cross-sectional investigation of a randomly selected sample of untreated male workers (n=216, age range 21-59 years) at the Olivetti factory in Pozzuoli, Naples.
Standardized measurements of anthropometric and metabolic parameters, blood pressure and Na+-Li+ countertransport were performed.
In a simple linear correlation analysis Na+-Li+ countertransport was directly related to plasma triglycerides and uric acid concentrations, body mass index (BMI) and systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
