Clinical Question:
Does sodium restriction reduce mortality from cardiovascular disease (CVD)?

The impact of salt intake on CVD outcomes is controversial. Trials demonstrating beneficial trends enrolled patients with an average sodium intake of 3900 mg/day and reduced their intake on average by 900mg/day. More evidence with clinical outcomes is required to better define benefits/harms with different levels of daily sodium intake.
