Abstract

Spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) were fed 6 different diets. The baseline diet (I) derived equal calories from sucrose, proteins, and fats. Three other diets (II, III, VI) derived the majority of calories from refined CHO, sucrose or glucose, with decreases in calories from proteins of fats. The last two diets (IV, V) were relatively low in sucrose with a higher percentage of the total calories from proteins and fats, respectively. From 3 to 15 weeks on the diets, the highest average BP was in rats consumimg high concentrations of sucrose of glucose (II, III, VI). Urinary excretoy rates of norepinephrine (NE) at 5, 10 and 15 weeks and epinephrine at 5 and 10 weeks were significantly elevated in rats ingesting diets high in refined CHO, and NE positively correlated with blood pressure (BP) at 5 and 10 weeks of the study. At the end of the study, serum insulin levels were not different, but plasma renin and serum glucagon levels were lower in SHR consuming the diets with high CHO concentrations. We conclude that equally elevated BP are seen with relatively high intakes of either sucrose or glucose whether the balance of calories is derived from lessening fat or protein. This is secondary, at least in part, to alterations in NE metabolism.
