People who suffer a heart deficiency and eat foods rich in salt are more likely to suffer major health problems end up in the hospital as a recent study warns .
The author of the study says d . Gary Newton at Mount Sinai Hospital in Ontario that eating too much salt is a major threat to patients with congestive heart until their condition stabilized بتناولهم regular treatment.
The study says that people who eat salt at 3.8 grams of sodium per day (equivalent tablespoons tea salt which is the amount recommended by the American Heart Association for healthy people ) face doubly risk of failure and heart failure within three years if Kornoa people eat less of salt.
Usually health experts advise reducing salt in food in general , but that the scientific evidence that supports the recommendation especially for patients with congestive heart is still weak and inadequate , as the writer says .
The American Heart Association recommends healthy people eat no more than 1.5 grams of sodium each day , but the average American intake of salt in their food approximately 3.5 grams every day.
The seriousness of sodium with cases of heart failure in that it causes water retention in the body a problem suffered by patients with heart failure , which causes the fluid to the lungs , abdomen and ankle also tell us Mary Knudson is the author of "How to coexist with congestive heart disease ."
This deals with heart failure patients real estate diuretics to help them get rid of excess fluid and sodium body are also advised to reduce salt in their food .
To study the effect of excess salt in food on the cases of heart failure , Dr. . Newton and the research team to follow up the cases of 123 people living with heart failure but stable condition. Newton has found that a small percentage of cases of heart failure die each year while many of those who attend treatment in dealing with living with the problem to increase in intensity .
Among the people who suffer heart defect and eat a lot of sodium an average of 3.8 grams per day is about 50 % of them were sent to the hospital during the almost three years. On the contrary, about 12 to 15% of people who eat a little salt in their food had entered the hospital in the same period.
The people who eat a lot of salt scored three times higher than that of other members of the sample in the risk of death during the study period .
It may be difficult to prove the direct impact of salt on the increase in death rates among patients with heart failure , but the fact that salt has a negative effect on the cardiovascular system makes us wary of people who suffer a heart deficiency from eating too much salt in their food. Limitations of this study may not be able to determine the acceptable amount of salt in the consumption of each person. For this security to underestimate the salt as much as possible in our diet .
The one does not need a dining does not exhaust the taste of salt in it, but less what should يتحسب from heart failure patient is processed meat that enters the manufactured a lot of sodium , as well as many of the foods and canned goods
