FAQ's For Heart Failure


Research indicates that 50% of patients having heart failure can live upto 5 years after diagnosis. Those with more advanced forms of heart failure have a 90% chance of dying within the first year. However recent developments in the medical show promising reults in the future of the treatment of the disease.

Heart failure is caused by weakening of the heart muscles, making the body unable to efficiently circulate blood.

Unfortunately, there is no known cure for heart failure. However, there are several ways to improve a patient's quality of life while living and coping with the disease.

Heart failure drugs like carvedilol, metoprolol and bisoprolol are beta blockers which limits damage to the heart. ACE Inhibitors, Angiotensin II receptor blockers, diuretics, digoxin and inotropes all aid in slowing the degenerative process.

Consumption of white bread, wine, salt, deep-fried foods, bacon, red meat, carbonated beverages and baked goods can contribute to heart disease.

Congestive heart failure occurs when the heart works with less efficiency than normal. This causes blood to move slower and blood pressure to increase within the body. Heart muscles eventually become weak and unable to efficiently pump blood to all parts of the body. The kidneys respond by retaining fluid and salt in the body; when fluid builds in the limbs and lungs, it results in congestive heart failure. Heart failure is the most common cause of hospitalization in adults aged 65 years or older in the United States. It affects nearly 6 million Americans. Heart failure causes include:
Heart attack
Coronary artery disease
High blood pressure
Kidney disease
Thyroid complications

Commonly experienced heart failure symptoms are:
Fluid and water retention in the legs, ankles, abdomen (called edema) and weight gain
Bloating in the stomach caused by swollen abdomen
Increased need to urinate at night time
Loss of appetite and nausea
Irregular or rapid heartbeat

Heart failure treatment must be prescribed and monitored by a doctor, who will carefully control a patient’s lifestyle and medication. Heart failure specialists usually offer more advanced treatment options as the condition progresses. Treating heart failure involves a journey to decrease symptoms and improve the body’s ability to handle the progression of the disease. This will hopefully prevent the risk of hospitalization and death.
