Abstract

Although several studies have investigated excessive salt intake as a risk factor for gastric precancerous lesions such as atrophic gastritis (AG) and intestinal metaplasia (IM), the evidence is insufficient to make conclusion. We evaluated the association between gastric precancerous lesions and salt intake. From 2008 to 2015, the medical records of 728 subjects who underwent upper gastrointestinal endoscopy and sodium excretion in 24-hr urine tests were retrospectively reviewed. Sixty-six subjects were excluded due to diuretics use (n = 55), diagnosis with a gastric neoplasm (n = 4), or the cases of IM in the absence of atrophy (n=7), so 662 subjects were included. AG and IM were diagnosed by endoscopic findings. The subjects were grouped into three levels by tertiles of 24-hr urine sodium excretion. A total of 192 (29.0%) had AG without IM and 112 (16.9%) had AG with IM. The number of 276 subjects (61.5%) were infected with Helicobacter pylori (Hp). In multivariate analyses, Hp infection (OR = 14.17, 95% CI 7.12-28.22) was associated with AG without IM. Highest level of sodium excretion (OR = 2.870, 95% CI 1.34-6.14), heavy smoking (≥ 20 pack-year) (OR = 2.75, 95% CI 1.02-7.39), and Hp infection (OR = 3.96, 95% CI 2.02-7.76) were associated with AG with IM. Our endoscopy based study suggested that high salt intake could be associated with an increased risk of AG with IM. Low salt diet might be helpful to prevent gastric carcinogenesis.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 6. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 11 February 2021.
All research outputs
#4,126,889
of 17,364,317 outputs
Outputs from Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention
#1,243
of 3,942 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#75,258
of 272,925 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention
#27
of 110 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 17,364,317 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 76th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 3,942 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 14.1. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 68% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 272,925 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 72% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 110 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 76% of its contemporaries.
