I was diagnosed with hypertension after my second child was born. I also had an incidence of HF immediately following her birth. All of this was attributed to my non-compliance with a low salt diet while pregnant. I ACTUALLY was very compliant, but my doctors didn’t believe me. When I was admitted to the CCU in HF they were SHOCKED! So was I.
My child is 14 I am still living with hypertension but fortunately have had no further problems with HF.
I am a huge advocate for pushing the medical community to listen to the patient and not perpetuate their assumptions of what is going on. ( It turns out this was related to chron’s disease, which was not being monitored at all while I was pregnant)
If you know something is wrong keep pushing, DON’T let anyone brush your concerns aside
