Why We Eat What We Eat, and Why What You Thought You Knew about Salt and Water Balance was all Wrong
Salt and Water Balance: Not So Simple

Disclosures: Nothing to disclose
I am a clinician-scientist at Duke-National University of Singapore and University of Erlangen, Germany. In 1991, as a medical student in Berlin, I was introduced to the idea that sodium might be stored in the body, which pretty much contradicted most of what I had been taught at school. I made a decision that I wanted to study that. 25 years later, we have learned that humans and animals store large amounts of sodium in their tissues as they age, that this sodium storage is coupled with disease, and that dietary salt loading activates an adaptive regulatory network in the kidney, muscle and liver which burn calories to excrete salt. Our work suggests that we really do not understand the effect of sodium chloride on the body, and that it is time to rethink salt. My colleagues and I have begun working on our different view on salt and water metabolism during my residency in internal medicine / nephrology at the University of Erlangen, Germany, which was followed by an appointment as a Junior Research Group Leader at the Interdisciplinary Center for Clinical Research and later as a Professor for Electrolyte and Circulation Research in Erlangen. From 2011 – 2017, I have served as an Associate Professor of Medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, USA.
