There is a lot of talk in the media and medical websites about Salt and it’s effects and that maybe it isn’t a bad thing after all? We would just like to say to you that you always have to keep an open mind to everything however salt is bad for Heart Failure patients in another way which is what we talk about. This is about salts ability to allow you to retain fluid in your body which means that the Heart works harder. This is a cause of Oedemas and is the reason why you take water tablets / diuretics like furosemide.

Always follow the guidelines outlined by your Doctor or Nurse. take the HYPE with a pinch of salt!
