Even 'Healthy' Ultraprocessed Foods Tied to Heart Risk

Some of those seemingly healthy processed foods could be putting your heart at risk. Breakfast cereals, protein bars and breads are just a few of the so-called healthy foods that could be harming your health. Here's what to look for. #mendedhearts http://ow.ly/CPrp50EBUEC

Each regular, daily serving of ultraprocessed food was linked with significant increases in rates of "hard" heart disease events and death

Had a really good 3 week visit with my Rachel my APN, Rachel has done more and more time, i have been seeing her every three weeks with me than my Doc. Her adjusting my meds especially my torsemide has really helped me I don’t feel so water heavy and she said I even look less squishy and my legs aren’t as hard. Between Rachel’s help and the nicer weather and doing more outside, I truly feel like I have moved forward. My depression dark cloud has lessened, it’s still there just not as dark and angry. My CHF is a good stable in stage 1, My heart valves are good, I have extra beats but no AFIB or any other abnormalities. I’m really trying hard to stay in stage 1 as long I can. What I think is beneficial for me is I take the “Awesome foursome”, I take extra COQ10 and at night I take my night pills with cranberry juice for my kidneys. As I read all your many posts & comments about your conditions, In ER, constant appointments my heart gets sad for you that are more medically advanced than I am. I can’t even imagine or fathom what many of you deal with on a daily basis. Steve
Yes, I am and do.
Non political, just sharing. One year ago today I was my first day at home because of my health vulnerability to coronavirus. It’s been quite an emotional year. It’s been difficult because I need to be boots on the ground to perform my job duties such as operate forklift, shipping & receiving, working in a warehouse. It’s hard to productively telework. However I am so very thankful that I am paid. And as of today there are no plans of when I return, which is also mentally hard. I want to state that I am very thankful and grateful for Ginger’s compassion and understanding of my emotions, it’s been rough.
In Whatcom County, Washington State, Dr. Bill Lombard, nephrologist, offers a presentation titled, "1 in 3 of us is at risk for kidney disease - are YOU the one?" Heart patients are particularly vulnerable to kidney disease. Dr. Lombard gave this presentation to the Bellingham Chapter of Mended Hearts. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zeEGNWpGDaw This KIDNEY HEALTH AWARENESS initiative in Whatcom County rolled out this month -- March is National Kidney Month -- but the educational campaign will be on-going. It's astounding how many people do not realize that diabetes and hypertension are the leading causes of kidney disease.

Hello, From Portland Oregon. Where do you hail from.
I had my heart echo today, my EF was like 57%. I really honestly thought it went down, because of the way i feel, instead it’s went up to 71% (non-officially). I am so relieved. — feeling relieved. What’s normal? A normal heart’s ejection fraction may be between 50 and 70 percent. You can have a normal ejection fraction measurement and still have heart failure (called HFpEF or heart failure with preserved ejection fraction). If the heart muscle has become so thick and stiff that the ventricle holds a smaller than usual volume of blood, it might still seem to pump out a normal percentage of the blood that enters it. In reality, though, the total amount of blood pumped isn’t enough to meet your body’s needs.
