Altered dietary salt for preventing pre-eclampsia
A Cochrane review 1 included two studies with a total of 603 subjects. Both compared advice to reduce dietary salt intake with advice to continue a normal diet. The confidence intervals were wide and crossed the no-effect line for all the reported outcomes, including pre-eclampsia (relative risk 1.11, 95% confidence interval 0.46 to 2.66).
