In America, heart disease is responsible for one in every four deaths. Heart failure (HF), in particular, is associated with a national health and economic burden that is expected to continually grow. Persons who consume a nutritious diet rich in micronutrients (e.g. vitamins) have lower cardiovascular disease risk and there is considerable interest in how the micronutrient environment might influence cardiovascular disease recovery. While there are many clinical and non-clinical factors that influence patient outcomes, our project will focus on nutrition's role in cardiovascular disease progression. My study investigates the relationship between patient nutritional profiles and post-discharge acute heart failure (AHF) cardiac recovery.
