Following a well-balanced diet, as recommended by the doctor, nurse or dietician, will help your partner or relative feel better, control their heart failure symptoms and possibly enhance their energy level. Limiting the amount of salt in your partner or relative's diet is of particular importance. You may want to try following a low-salt diet with your partner or relative. However, if you do want to include more salt in your own diet, you could try cooking a low-salt meal and then adding some salt to your plate at the table.
