BACKGROUND Although meta-analyses of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) of salt reduction report a reduction in the level of blood pressure (BP), the effect of reduced dietary salt on cardiovascular disease (CVD) events remains unclear. METHODS We searched for RCTs with follow-up of at least 6 months that compared dietary salt reduction (restricted salt dietary intervention or advice to reduce salt intake) to control/no intervention in adults, and reported mortality or CVD morbidity data… Expand
Dietary sodium reduction in heart failure: a challenge to the Cochrane Review.
TLDR
It is suggested that a more correct interpretation of Paterna et al. is that sodium restriction is dangerous in HF patient who are also receiving very high doses of loop diuretics and fluid restriction, which is likely based on the observations of low blood pressure and increased creatinine in this investigation. Expand
Effect of longer term modest salt reduction on blood pressure: Cochrane systematic review and meta-analysis of randomised trials
TLDR
A modest reduction in salt intake for four or more weeks causes significant and, from a population viewpoint, important falls in blood pressure in both hypertensive and normotensive individuals. Expand
BLOOD PRESSURE, CARDIOVASCULAR OUTCOMES AND SODIUM INTAKE, A CRITICAL REVIEW OF THE EVIDENCE
Abstract Consideration of the role of NaCl (salt) in the pathogenesis and treatment of essential hypertension is one of the overriding research themes both in experimental and clinical medicine. TheExpand
Salt intake and cardiovascular disease: why are the data inconsistent?
TLDR
Controversy over the association between sodium intake and CVD is likely to remain unresolved until large-scale definitive randomized controlled trials are conducted to determine the effect of low sodium intake (compared to moderate intake) on CVD incidence. Expand
Sodium and Potassium and the Pathogenesis of Hypertension
The evidence relating blood pressure to salt intake in humans originates from population studies and randomized clinical trials of interventions on dietary salt intake. Estimates from meta-analysesExpand
What is the feasibility of implementing effective sodium reduction strategies to treat hypertension in primary care settings? A systematic review
TLDR
Despite the availability of efficacious counseling methods for the reduction of sodium intake among newly diagnosed hypertensive patients, none of these methods, in their present form, are suitable for incorporation into existing primary care settings in countries such as Canada, United States, and UK. Expand
Lower levels of sodium intake and reduced cardiovascular risk: the challenge to achieve lower sodium recommendations.
TLDR
Although the current study was not originally designed to test the effectiveness of lower sodium intake on CVD risk, multiple 24-hour urine samples, the “gold standard” measure of sodium intake, were used to characterize usual sodium intake. Expand
[Scientific Statement] Report of the Salt Reduction Committee of the Japanese Society of Hypertension(1) Role of salt in hypertension and cardiovascular diseases
TLDR
Small-scale studies demonstrated that excess salt increased the risk of the left ventricular hypertrophy, heart failure, the urinary protein/albumin levels and end-stage renal failure, so low-salt diet is an effective strategy to decrease BP and body fluid volume but is less effective to ameliorate the other cardiovascular risk factors. Expand
Effect of longer-term modest salt reduction on blood pressure.
TLDR
Assessing the effect of a longer-term modest reduction in salt intake on BP and whether there was a dose-response relationship found that age, ethnic group, BP status and the change in 24-h urinary sodium were all significantly associated with the fall in systolic BP, explaining 68% of the variance between studies. Expand
Effectiveness of Changes in Diet Composition on Reducing the Incidence of Cardiovascular Disease
TLDR
The available evidence supports three major dietary strategies for cardiovascular disease prevention: the replacement of saturated fat with unsaturated fat and/or fiber-rich carbohydrate foods; the reduction of salt intake; and the implementation of dietary patterns resembling the traditional Mediterranean diet.

Advice to reduce 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
Long term effects of dietary sodium reduction on cardiovascular disease outcomes: observational follow-up of the trials of hypertension prevention (TOHP)
TLDR
Sodium reduction, previously shown to lower blood pressure, may also reduce long term risk of cardiovascular events. Expand
Sodium reduction for hypertension prevention in overweight adults: further results from the Trials of Hypertension Prevention Phase II
TLDR
From these beneficial but modest results with highly motivated and extensively counselled individuals, sodium reduction sufficient to favourably influence the population blood pressure distribution will be difficult to achieve without food supply changes. Expand
Baseline characteristics of participants in phase II of the Trials of Hypertension Prevention (TOHP II). Trials of Hypertension Prevention (TOHP) Collaborative Research Group.
TLDR
Data reported in this article indicate that any subsequent differences in BP among the randomized groups are unlikely to result from maldistribution of known confounding variables at baseline, and results from TOHP II should be broadly applicable to the general population. Expand

TLDR
The beneficial effects on blood pressure achieved in this trial have implications for the prevention of cardiovascular disease through dietary reduction of calories and sodium. Expand

TLDR
This trial may have important public policy implications concerning the ability of life-style modifications to reduce BP and prevent the development of hypertension over the long term, thereby avoiding the need for drug therapy which while effective is costly and may have side effects. Expand
