Video – Kidney Week 2022: Fructose, Sugar and Blood Pressure – An Unexpected Relationship


Vumedi is a website for education of physicians and I recently posted a lecture on their site on sugar, salt and high blood pressure.

High blood pressure is common, affects one-third the population, and is the most common cause of heart failure and stroke, the second most common cause of kidney disease. This is a lecture on the newly discovered role for sugar and fructose in high blood pressure, and its relationship with salt.  While directed towards physicians, you may still find it interesting and helpful, especially if you suffer from this condition.
