ACCEL Lite: Late Breaker: SODIUM-HF: Dietary Intervention Under 100 Mmol In Heart Failure

Clinicians often recommend dietary sodium reduction for almost all their patients with HF. Whether or not this practice should continue remains an uncertain question in almost every clinic visit. We spend a fair amount of time counselling patients on this, and patients want to know if they need to undertake a full change in their diet to improve how they feel or function, and if this changes will increase or decrease the chance of being in the hospital again.

In this interview, Justin A. Ezekowitz, MBBCh, MSc and Steven E. Nissen MD, MACC, with Yuvraj Chowdhury MD, discuss Late Breaker: SODIUM-HF: Study Of Dietary Intervention Under 100 Mmol In Heart Failure.
