Abstract Objective To evaluate the joint association of sodium and potassium urinary excretion (as surrogate measures of intake) with cardiovascular events and mortality, in the context of current World Health Organization recommendations for daily intake ( 3.5 g potassium) in adults. Design International prospective cohort study. Setting 18 high, middle, and low income countries, sampled from urban and rural communities. Participants 103 570 people who provided morning fasting urine samples. Ma...

We congratulate Engberink et al1 for their study on the effect of single versus multiple dietary sodium estimates on health outcomes. However, we disagree with some of the presented interpretations. The authors state that the observed U-shaped association between single dietary sodium intake estimates and outcome disappear when using the average of multiple dietary sodium intake estimates. However, the wide confidence intervals of the spline plots (shown in Figure 3 of the Engberink et al1 study...

We aim to evaluate the association of systolic and diastolic blood pressure (SBP and DBP) with estimated urinary sodium (Na) and potassium(K) excretions, and their gram-to-gram Na/K ratio across various salt-diet regions during 2005–2009 in China. A prospective cohort study was conducted to recruit 46,285 participants in China. A single fasting morning urine specimen was collected to estimate 24-hour urinary Na and K excretion using Kawasaki formula. Means of estimated Na and K were 5.7 ± 1.7 an...

Summary Background Dietary guidelines recommend minimising consumption of whole-fat dairy products, as they are a source of saturated fats and presumed to adversely affect blood lipids and increase cardiovascular disease and mortality. Evidence for this contention is sparse and few data for the effects of dairy consumption on health are available from low-income and middle-income countries. Therefore, we aimed to assess the associations between total dairy and specific types of dairy products wi...

Summary Background WHO recommends that populations consume less than 2 g/day sodium as a preventive measure against cardiovascular disease, but this target has not been achieved in any country. This recommendation is primarily based on individual-level data from short-term trials of blood pressure (BP) without data relating low sodium intake to reduced cardiovascular events from randomised trials or observational studies. We investigated the associations between community-level mean sodium and p...
