Surprising results on low-salt diets, heart failure and quality of life

Pour in the salt shaker

The study reveals how reducing sodium intake can help patients with heart failure.

Surprising results show that a low-salt diet does not prevent death or hospital visits, but improves symptoms and quality of life.

Over the past century, people with faint hearts have been told to cut back on their salt intake, but until now, there has been little scientific evidence behind this recommendation.

The largest randomized clinical trial to examine sodium reduction and heart failure reported concurrent results (function(d, s, id){ var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById (id)) returns; js = d.createElement (s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.6"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore (js, fjs); } (document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));
