Healthy eating can be difficult after receiving a pulmonary hypertension (PH) diagnosis. While there is no specific diet for those with PH, eating healthy and reducing your intake of processed foods, may help with medication interaction, decreasing edema (the buildup of excess body fluid), or decrease nausea and discomfort. Finding the motivation to eat right when you have PH is best done alongside others with PH who understand the obstacles and rewards.
