Response to Burgman (Original post)

49. Have you changed your diet?

It won't make as big a change as the meds, but it may make some changes, or help relieve you until you get neducal help.
There are web sites specifically for CHF patients that tells you exactly what to eat and how much.
Everybody should cut out salt from their diet, and eat mostly vegetables and fruits, low or no fat, and restrict caloric intake.
Beans are your new best friend. Seriously.
I had to change my father's diet because my mother was starving him for proteins, and not letting him
eat enough vegetables. I baked him salt free bread because most commercial bread (as well as any processed food) is LOADED with salt.
He had CHF for years and years; he recently died of natural causes at age 90.
