Q:

Why is it important to monitor fluid in heart failure patients?

A:

When you are in heart failure, your body has a tendency to build up fluid basically everywhere. You can get swelling in your feet, legs, abdomen and even in your lungs which can cause breathing challenges. Since your heart is already weakened with heart failure, the excess fluid makes it work too hard, so we try and limit the amount of fluid you ingest to prevent this from happening. Your physician and your dietitian can help you determine your fluid needs through your diet.

Q:

Why are regular dental exams important to my overall health?

A:

It is very important to have regular dental exams, as the state of your teeth and gums can alert your dentist of potentially severe health issues. Dentists can see changes in your gums that suggest diabetes, or even heart disease, and will advise you to visit your physician for review of these concerns.

Q:

How can I reduce my risk of reflux?

A:

You can do a few things to help lower your chances of having reflux. Maintaining a healthy weight, limiting your alcohol and caffeine intake, and quit smoking. Also, it's not a good idea to eat right before laying down at bedtime since that can help food come up more easily.
