Resource Summary

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

Bottom-line:
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.
