Resumo Objective: To get some additional insight on the mechanisms of the effect of salt intake on body weight.Design and methods: Rats were fed a tow (LSD), normal (NSD), or high (HSD) salt diet. in a first set, body weight, tail-cuff blood pressure, fasting plasma thyroid-stimulating hormone, triiodothyronine, L-thyroxine, glucose, insulin, and angiotensin II were measured. Angiotensin II content was determined in white and brown adipose tissues. Uncoupling protein 1 expression was measured in brown adipose tissue. in a second set, body weight, food intake, energy balance, and plasma leptin were determined. in a third set of rats, motor activity and body weight were evaluated.Results: Blood pressure increased on HSD. Body weight was similar among groups at weaning, but during adulthood it was tower on HSD and higher on LSD. Food intake, L-thyroxine concentration, uncoupling protein 1 expression and energy expenditure were higher in HSD rats, white non-fasting leptin concentration was lower in these groups compared to NSD and LSD animals. Plasma thyroid-stimulating hormone decreased on both HSD and LSD white plasma glucose and insulin were elevated only on LSD. A decrease in plasma angiotensin II was observed in HSD rats. On LSD, an increase in brown adipose tissue angiotensin II content was associated to decreased uncoupling protein 1 expression and energy expenditure. in this group, a low angiotensin II content in white adipose tissue was also found. Motor activity was not influenced by the dietary salt content.Conclusions: Chronic alteration in salt intake is associated with changes in body weight, food intake, hormonal profile, and energy expenditure and tissue angiotensin II content.
