Heart Failure and a Low-Salt Diet

Tue Nov 14, 2017 6:59 pm

Hi All,

In the past 2 weeks ive been placed on the transplant list for a new heart. Of course there have been many things that come along with having heart failure, but I find the biggest problem at the moment is having to be on a salt reduced diet. Im already a fussy eater and pretty much everything has salt in it. Does anyone have any tips or tricks to help me get through this ? 

I have already spoke to the hospital dietitian and didn't really find her helpful.

Thanks in advance.

G'day Hudson

Thanks for reaching out buddy, I know for a fact the whole low salt diet is super annoying and frustrating. Some tips from myself would be - 

Tell whoever cooks for you to not add any extra salt to dishes.

You can buy low sodium sauces and toppings

Theres a big range of low salt organic products that still taste salty but actually aren't, my biggest fav from that was, low salt chicken stock, which my mother cooked with alot while I was on the list.

And of course try and chat to an professional in that line of work.
