Abstract: Objective To assess the reliability and validity of an FFQ to evaluate dietary Patterns of Na consumption among low-income and low-literacy Brazilian hypertensive subjects Design: The initial FFQ was submitted to content analysis with the pre-test administered to fifteen subjects Reliability was evaluated according to the reproducibility criterion, with interviewer administration of the FFQ twice within a 15 d Interval. Validity was assessed against a 24 h recall (132 subjects), a 3 d diet record (121 subjects) and it biomarker (24 h urinary Na; 121 subjects) To test the correlation with the biomarker, discretionary salt was added to the FFQ Na values Setting. A large Urban teaching hospital in south-eastern Brazil Subjects. The study was based on 132 selected subjects (eighty-three women and forty-nine men) aged 18 to 85 years. Results Kappa coefficients ranged from 0.79 to 0.98, confirming the reproductibility of the FFQ There was no correlation between urinary Na excretion, the FFQ and the 24 h recall for the general sample, although significant correlations had been observed when Methods Were summed LIP (24 h recall + discretionary salt + FFQ. 0.32. P = 0.01). The addition of discretionary salt significantly unproved the biomarker-based FFQ validity, with correlation coefficients varying from 0.19 (general sample) to 0.31 female sub-sample). Conclusions The developed FFQ demonstrated satisfactory evidence of validity and reliability and con be used an important complementary tool for the evaluation of Na intake among Brazilian hypertensive subjects
