Wow, last week I went on a minor rant using salt sensitivity as an exemplar, and look what showed up in my mail this morning!

On February 8, 1:00–2:00 pm Eastern time, Robin Felder, PhD, from the Medical Automation Research Center and the University of Virginia Health Systems, will answer your questions concerning GENETIC TESTS FOR SUSCEPTIBILITY TO CHRONIC DISEASE; A FOCUS ON HYPERTENSION AND SALT SENSITIVITY Log on NOW to view the presentation and ask a question.

Log on and you will:

Understand the mechanisms behind the phenotypic expression of hypertension and salt sensitivity.
Learn about the genetic variants that are thought to be responsible for these diseases.
Be able to identify which gene variants will have diagnostic utility in the clinical setting.
Find out how epidemiologic data has led to the current understanding of disease prevalence among ethnic groups.

Wow. Thank you, Piq! Way interesting (I'm hypertensive, was hypotensive as a teen. Go figure) My sister and aunt are hypertensive. My nephew has recently been diagnosed hypertensive. My mother was hypertensive. Her mother was hypotensive all her life. Nice that somebody's working on the genetic component.

The salt sensitivity is a related but not identical issue; I was glad to have the connection and differences explained. Sis is very salt sensitive, aunt slightly, me more than aunt, less than sis. It's an issue.

I love clear explanations, using precise language. I don't care if I have to look up a few words; it's worth it to avoid ambiguity.

Nine thousand thanks!
