Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Swollen heart in medical language is called cardiomegaly. Cardiomegaly can be caused by the following conditions, namely:
1. The aging process
2. High blood pressure
3. High cholesterol
4. Heart disease, such as heart valve leaks, coronary heart disease, rheumatic heart disease, heart failure, heart rhythm disorders and others.
Well, for parents you have to limit all foods that contain high salt and limit the provision of salt to food. As for the types of foods that are good for consumption because they contain a little salt, namely cucumbers, raw eggplant, avocado fruit, lettuce, apples, oranges, bananas and others, you can read more in this article. As for canned foods or processed foods should be avoided because they contain a lot of salt.
In addition, also limit body fluid intake. Regarding this matter, you need a recommendation from your parent's heart specialist. Because the amount of fluid allowed depends on the size of the heart's swelling and how severe the clinical condition is experienced.
Other types of food that should be a concern are foods that contain high cholesterol or bad fats. This type of food should be avoided and should be replaced with foods that contain good fat. You can read about these types of foods in this article.
The last one is that you should eat foods high in fiber, such as papaya, mango, beans and others. You can read the full article. Foods that are high in fiber can inhibit the absorption of bad fats in the intestine.
Thus hopefully useful.
