- adolescents, arterial hypertension, memory, stress, sodium, potassium, magnesium
- The authors evaluated the stress level according to IDIX system, the mnestic function status according to DIAKOR system and the hair content of sodium, potassium and magnesium in 30 adolescents aged from 13 to 15 years with arterial hypertension. It was stated that the adolescents with arterial hypertension had the reliable worst indices of audition, speech and vision memory and high stress level. The excess of sodium, low provision with magnesium and the relative defi ciency of potassium were revealed in all schoolchildren but were more expressed in arterial hypertension. It was determined that magnesium exerted positive infl uence on the mnestic function status, sodium exerted the negative infl uence on the memory status and potassium exerted the positive infl uence on the stress level.
