The loss of sodium during infancy causes long term changes in sodium intake. Human research shows that the loss of maternal sodium during pregnancy and neonatal after birth causes an increase sodium intake during childhood. A study that examined sodium intake among infants that were treated with diuretics during the post-natal period found changes in sodium intake compared to controls. In this study we will test sodium intake in young children who have suffered from vomiting due to Hypertrophic Pyloric stenosis during early infancy.

This proposal describes a pilot study aimed at determining whether genetic variations in taste receptors determine differential taste tolerability of pediatric medications.
The goals of the proposed research are to determine whether repeated exposure to a low sodium food will result in reduced preference for salt in that food among children; and to determine ...
Four basic taste perceptions and relationship with caries are poorly investigated in children as compared to adults. The aim of this study was to evaluate salty, sweet, bitter and sour ta...
The purpose of this study is to determine how repeated dietary exposure to umami taste affects umami taste perception, hedonics, food preferences, and satiety. Healthy adult subjects will ...
High sodium levels in restaurant food have prompted Philadelphia and New York City to require inclusion of sodium content in addition to calories on menus to "nudge" consumers toward lower sodium food...
Excessive salt intake is an established risk factor for hypertension. We conducted a cross-sectional study to examine the association between salty taste recognition and estimated salt intake and mask...
The emerging importance of taste in medicine and biomedical research, and new knowledge about its genetic underpinnings, has motivated us to supplement classic taste-testing methods in two ways. First...
The sense of taste holds a key integrate role in assessing the flavour of food before swallowing is initiated. If the expectations for taste are not met, palatability and pleasure of the food can decr...
Sensory impairments are critical for diagnosing and characterizing neurodevelopmental disorders. Taste is a sensory modality often not well characterized. Engrailed-2 (En2) is a transcription factor c...
Conditions characterized by an alteration in gustatory function or perception. Taste disorders are frequently associated with OLFACTION DISORDERS. Additional potential etiologies include METABOLIC DISEASES; DRUG TOXICITY; and taste pathway disorders (e.g., TASTE BUD diseases; FACIAL NERVE DISEASES; GLOSSOPHARYNGEAL NERVE DISEASES; and BRAIN STEM diseases).
The minimum concentration at which taste sensitivity to a particular substance or food can be perceived.
Sodium or sodium compounds used in foods or as a food. The most frequently used compounds are sodium chloride or sodium glutamate.
A condition characterized by alterations of the sense of taste which may range from mild to severe, including gross distortions of taste quality.
Standardized tests designed to measure abilities, as in intelligence, aptitude, and achievement tests, or to evaluate personality traits.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
