Besides medical treatments and modifications to lifestyle, there are several nutritional and dietary supplements on the market that claim to reduce leg swelling, enhance breathing and increase exercise capacity in people with pulmonary hypertension and heart failure. This session will help raise greater awareness about various nutritional, herbal and dietary supplements in the context of pulmonary hypertension.
