Good hydration may reduce long-term risks for heart failure – Study

Good hydration may reduce long-term risks for heart failure – Study

London, March 30 (Prensa Latina) UK scientists strongly recommended staying well-hydrated to reduce risk of developing heart failure, a specialized source reported on Wednesday.

¨Similar to reducing salt intake, drinking enough water and staying hydrated are ways to support our hearts, and can help reduce long-term risks of heart disease,¨ the European heart Journal magazine said.

The team assessed how hydrated the participants were by analyzing serum sodium levels which increases when fluid levels decrease. This can be a useful marker for identifying individuals at risk of heart failure.

The research also helped pinpoint older adults at higher risk of developing both heart failure and left ventricular hypertrophy.

“Serum sodium and fluid intake can easily be assessed in clinical exams and help doctors identify patients who may benefit from learning about ways to stay hydrated,” the experts said.
