The effect of dietary salt on glycaemic responses to different test meals was investigated. Eight healthy male volunteers ate four test meals on consecutive mornings and in random order; the meals were 50 g carbohydrate taken as a 20% glucose solution or as boiled macaroni with and without supplementation with 6 g salt. In contrast with other reports, no significant differences in peak plasma glucose concentrations or areas under the plasma glucose curves could be established. These findings do not support a beneficial effect of salt restriction on glycaemic control in diabetes.
