The onset of specific sodium appetite as a result of body sodium loss, is slow. In an early report it has been shown that in rats, acute sodium depletion by peritoneal dialysis (pd) produced a sudden and significant sodium deficit within half an hour, but sodium appetite is made evident usually after 12–14 hours, being the higher intake of sodium salts 20–24h after pd (1).
