Abstract

Background: The prevention of fluid retention is important to reduce hospitalizations in patients with heart failure (HF). Following a low-sodium diet helps to reduce fluid retention. Objective: The primary objective of this study was to use growth mixture modeling to identify distinct classes of sodium adherenceVcharacterized by shared growth trajectories of objectively measured dietary sodium. The secondary objective was to identify patient-level determinants of the nonadherent trajectory.
