hi Everyone I had gravy on my roast dinner yesterday at my sisters at 3pm and I was up all night hot and palpitations. It’s so frustrating is it the salt content ? I had the same issue Saturday night when I had hallomi ? I can have the Sainsbury’s reduced salt gravy and I’m ok but any other brands even bisto reduced salt gravy effects me . It’s so annoying. Does anyone else suffer with this ? Thanks
Gravy : hi Everyone I had gravy on my roast... - AF Association
thanks Jean I will buy some of the morrisons gravy so I can take it with me when I visit relatives and have a roast dinner at there house. Its such a problem it affecting me like that I have hardly slept last night .I hope it works as I cant bear the thought of a roast dinner without gravy yuk!
I have always had a problem with gravy even before afib, I’ve never known why.in fact I thought it was just me as nobadyhas ever mentionedthis befire.......I’m quite relieved!... It seems worse with roast dinners. Although I made a steak and kidney pie this week with gravy and that started me off.....exactly the same I get hot and bothered and my pulse goes up, not afib up, but racing enoughto feel it...I go very redin the face too.........I have to go to bed and let it pass......I’m pleased to read all this I had no idea I could solve this.
Hi everyone. My first post!
Isn't there a relationship between high sodium and low potassium? and low potassium causing AF in some people? quote here from health.harvard.edu/newslett...
"In healthy individuals, the kidneys respond to excess sodium by flushing it out in the urine. Unfortunately, this also removes potassium. If potassium levels are low, the body tries to hoard it, which also means hanging onto sodium. Water follows sodium, leading to an increase in the amount of water in the body and the volume of blood in circulation. Blood pressure climbs, and the heart must work harder. Excess sodium blunts the ability of blood vessels to relax and contract with ease, and may also overstimulate the growth of heart tissue. All of these responses are made worse by low potassium intake."
"One way to flush sodium out of the body is by getting more potassium. An interesting report from the Trials of Hypertension Prevention suggests that changing the balance between these two minerals can help the heart and arteries."
Does it contain monosodium glutamate? MSG is a trigger for some peeps i believe.
Make your own and don't put salt in and see how you go!!☺
