Importance Recent estimates suggest that more than 26 million people worldwide have heart failure. The syndrome is associated with major symptoms, significantly increased mortality, and extensive use of health care. Evidence-based treatments influence all these outcomes in a proportion of patients with heart failure. Current management also often includes advice to reduce dietary salt intake, although the benefits are uncertain. Objective To systematically review randomized clinical trials of… Expand

TLDR
The author reinforces the need for randomized, prospective studies including large sample sizes, evaluating the effect of different regimens of sodium intake on relevant outcomes to build evidence base for detailed recommendations. Expand
Science of Salt: A regularly updated systematic review of salt and health outcomes studies (April to October 2018)
TLDR
In a cohort of older Italians, increased risk of total mortality was observed with salt intake less than ~16 g/d (6300 mg sodium/d) at baseline; no association existed for incident cardiovascular disease (CVD) or CVD mortality. Expand
Nutrition intervention in heart failure: should consumption of the DASH eating pattern be recommended to improve outcomes?
TLDR
Preliminary evidence looks promising regarding effects of DASH eating pattern consumption on ventricular function and 30-day hospitalizations in HF patients, but more research is needed to confirm its effects on short-term and long-term HF outcomes while better understand underlying mechanisms in the context of HF pharmacotherapy. Expand
Nutrition as Treatment Modality in Heart Failure
TLDR
Evidence from case studies and small clinical trials suggest a positive impact of plant-based and Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension dietary patterns on HF-related pathophysiology, quality of life, hospital admissions, and mortality. Expand
Salt Reduction to Prevent Hypertension and Cardiovascular Disease: JACC State-of-the-Art Review.
TLDR
An update on the evidence relating salt to health, with a particular focus on blood pressure and cardiovascular disease, as well as the potential mechanisms, is provided. Expand
Dietary Sodium Intake and Health Indicators: A Systematic Review of Published Literature between January 2015 and December 2019.
TLDR
A systematic review of recent studies on sodium intake and health is described, the risk of bias (ROB) of selected studies is examined, and future research is needed to identify and standardize methods for measuring sodium intake. Expand
Adherence to the Dutch dietary guidelines and 15-year incidence of heart failure in the EPIC-NL cohort
TLDR
In a large Dutch population of middle-aged adults, higher adherence to the Dutch dietary guidelines was associated with lower risk of HF. Expand
Sodium Intake and Heart Failure
TLDR
Evidence and underlying mechanisms favoring and contradicting limiting sodium intake in heart failure are highlighted. Expand
Self‐care of heart failure patients: practical management recommendations from the Heart Failure Association of the European Society of Cardiology
TLDR
Recommendations for nutrition, physical activity, medication adherence, psychological status, sleep, leisure and travel, smoking, immunization and preventing infections, symptom monitoring, and symptom management are consistent with information from guidelines, expert consensus documents, recent evidence and expert opinion. Expand
Higher Intakes of Potassium and Magnesium, but Not Lower Sodium, Reduce Cardiovascular Risk in the Framingham Offspring Study
TLDR
Results highlight the importance of potassium and magnesium to cardiovascular health and the combined effects of these minerals in the Framingham Offspring Study. Expand

Low sodium versus normal sodium diets in systolic heart failure: systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
Compared with a normal sodium diet, a low sodium diet significantly increases morbidity and mortality in systolic HF. Expand

BACKGROUND Heart failure (HF) is a major health care burden and there is a growing need to develop strategies to maintain health and sustain quality of life in persons with HF. The purpose of thisExpand
Comparing Sodium Intake Strategies in Heart Failure: Rationale and Design of the Prevent Adverse Outcomes in Heart Failure by Limiting Sodium (PROHIBIT) Study.
TLDR
Current data indicate limited adherence with recommended sodium restriction among patients with HF, and the inconsistency of guidelines underlines the weak database that supports this cornerstone treatment. Expand
Reduced dietary salt for prevention of cardiovascular disease.
TLDR
Evidence from a large and small trial showed that a low sodium diet helps in maintenance of lower blood pressure following withdrawal of antihypertensives, and targeting of comprehensive dietary and behavioural programmes in patients with elevated blood pressure requiring drug treatment would be justified. Expand
Impact of Dietary Sodium Restriction on Heart Failure Outcomes.
TLDR
In symptomatic patients with chronic HF, sodium restriction may have a detrimental impact on outcome and a randomized clinical trial is needed to definitively address the role of sodium restriction in HF management. Expand
How Low Is Too Low With Salt in Heart Failure? Randomized Studies Needed to Resolve Concern.
TLDR
More recent data from studies in the general population have not found a benefit to lowering sodium for people without elevated blood pressure, and some randomized trials have been launched to provide more definitive answers. Expand
A high-sodium diet is associated with acute decompensated heart failure in ambulatory heart failure patients: a prospective follow-up study.
TLDR
This study provides the first prospective evidence that ambulatory HF patients who consume higher amounts of sodium are at greater risk of an ADHF event, and provides support for more stringent sodium intake guidelines than those currently recommended for HF patients. Expand
Reducing population salt intake worldwide: from evidence to implementation.
TLDR
A modest reduction in population salt intake worldwide will result in a major improvement in public health, and is probably a major cause of stomach cancer. Expand
Diet prevention and therapy for heart failure?
TLDR
In the current issue of Circulation: Heart Failure, 2 provocative articles address the influence of diet as therapy for heart failure and require us to pause in the march toward optimal evidence-based medical and device therapy and reconsider not only the preventive but also the therapeutic benefits of diet in the management of patients with known HF.

Three gram sodium intake is associated with longer event-free survival only in patients with advanced heart failure.
TLDR
Comparisons in cardiac event-free survival between patients with sodium intake above and below 3 g suggest that 3 g dietary sodium restriction may be most appropriate for patients in NYHA functional Classes III and IV. Expand
