Diastolic heart failure
I am a 72 yr old female. I have been diagnosed with diastolic heart failure, hardening of arorta.. I also have hypothyroid. My blood pressure had been high for yrs and cholesterol was very high. I had an echocardiogram three yrs ago and was never treated for heart failure till last yr when my EKG came back abnormal during a preop exam for hernia surgery. Now I take Lipitor,Carvedilol, My numbers have gone down, chol-133, HDL 125, LDL 62.
My dr doesn’t seem to be concerned. I would like to know what other tests you recommend and are the medicines he is giving me sufficient?
