Mayo Clinic Minute – Are you using a salt substitute?

Salt substitutes can be an effective way to help lower your blood pressure and right heart disease. But experts warn that overuse of certain salt substitutes can be dangerous for some people.

Dr. Regis Fernandes, a Mayo Clinic cardiologist, explains why you should use caution with salt substitutes.

For the safety of its patients, staff and visitors, Mayo Clinic has strict masking policies in place. Anyone shown without a mask was recorded prior to COVID-19 or recorded in an area not designated for patient care, where social distancing and other safety protocols were followed.
