In brief: Possibly

Healthy diet and lifestyle will help, but not likely to cure the disorder. Read: http://www.

In brief: PH and Diet

A healthy diet is important whether or not you have pulmonary hypertension (ph).
Often patients with ph should observe diets low in sodium (salt) and restrictive of high fluid intake. Please discuss your particular dietary needs with your physician.

In brief: Yes

Having a low salt diet and a fluid restriction is very important to avoid heart failure. Having said that, we do not know of any diet that can cure the disease or change its progression.

In brief: A little

Avoiding excessive salt and avoiding or correcting obesity can help but otherwise i'm not aware of any other diet related interventions that are likely to make much difference.
