Wed, Jul 3 10:18pm · Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction (HFpEF) in Heart & Blood Health

I have hf with pef and no usual symptoms. I try to walk 4-5 times per week. I walk 1 1/2 miles in 30 minutes. I am experiencing some tiredness but just upped metoprolol and that seems to have increased fatigue. I am in Afib all the time and the Drs. are controlling the rate with meds. I have not heard of this clinical trial. Sure hope it works.

They have a new farm raised salmon out of Antarctica. Haven’y tried it because I feel the same way about farmed fish. The company is Sixty South.

I have diastolic dysfunction and I would suggest you see a cardiologist. Personally, I would recommend Mayo, if possible.

Tue, Feb 26 6:50pm · Salty Facts – Heart Failure and Sodium in Heart & Blood Health

We eat very little processed food. I do read food labels and it’s amazing how much sodium is added. We eat a lot of chicken and fresh veggies. I make most of our meals from scratch and I love to bake. I tend to use less salt than recipes call for. When you get used to eating less sodium you can really tell the difference when you go out for dinner.

I take 50 mg of Metoprolol everyday and I did notice tiredness and a little dizziness too. That was about all the reaction I had. It usually gets better after the first couple of weeks. Good luck!

Sounds like good words of advice to live by. Thanks for sharing.👍🏻

Wed, Jan 23 2:11pm · Confused about Stiff Heart, Diastolic Heart Failure, or HFpEF? in Heart & Blood Health

I’ve been told to exercise 6 days per week. I usually manage 5-6 days and I walk 1 1/2 miles at 3 mph. I can do arm exercises with 3-5 lb. weights but no more than that. Consult with your Dr. first, of course. I was diagnosed 4 years ago and it all began with Afib. The heart pounding i’m not sure about. Hope this helps!!
