Today I heard Dr. Farris Timimi explain "Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction". This is the state of my heart. I have diastolic dysfunction. The symptom that led me to this diagnosis, at Mayo Clinic, is shortness of breath when walking for one mile. TRIAMTERENE/HCTZ 37.5-25MG CAP was prescribed.
My concern is whether or not exercise harms the heart that has diastolic dysfunction. I am interested in learning the type and amount of exercise that is appropriate for someone in the early stages of diastolic dysfunction. I also wonder if a hard pounding of each beat of the heart, which I have intermittently even when sitting, is related to diastolic dysfunction.
Thank you. @muriel66
