heart failure supplements

Dear Doctor,
Could you tell me if it is advisable to take dietary supplements like Ensure powder for diastolic heart failure?
Thanks.

We have no real data on supplement use and diastolic heart failure. It is important to watch your sodium intake, and this is important for all dietary intake. Generally, for people with heart failure you want to limit sodium intake to less than 2 grams per day.
