Confused about Stiff Heart, Diastolic Heart Failure, or HFpEF?
It seems from what I have read that with diastolic dysfunction or early stage heart failure, there is basically nothing that can be done to improve it but that regular exercise like walking can help slow its progression. Is that correct?

Your cardiologist is the best person to ask about the best treatment and/or therapy for diastolic dysfunction. Often an ACE Inhibitor med can be helpful but of course your doctor should make that decision. Do you currently have symptoms?
What treatments has your doctor recommended?
Yes that is what i was told, no cure. Keep you b.p low and watch ur pulse
