Effect of taurine on blood pressure in male greater salt eaters with faster heart rate. Male greater salt eaters were defined as shown in Figure 6 and analyzed only in those whose heart rate (HR) were recorded. T/Cr: 24-hour urinary taurine (T, mmol) to creatinine (Cr, g) ratio. T/Cr: + ≧ mean (= 639.4), - < mean, HR: + ≧ mean (= 72.9), - < mean. SBP: systolic blood pressure, DBP: diastolic blood pressure. Parenthesis indicates a number of participants. Significant difference: *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.001.
