I do. My Dr. at Mayo put me on the two. So far so good.

Dec 30, 2019 · Stiff Heart - diastolic heart failure in Heart & Blood Health

Hi @tcokeefe. I am a 67 year old female who was diagnosed with diastolic heart failure 5 years ago. I know the feeling you are experiencing. I’ve been told by my cardiologist and an electrophysiologist, that the 5 year mark is not accurate. It all depends on the person. I’m hoping to see my grandchildren grow up. I try to exercise and eat
right. I am in Afib all the time now but my meds seem to be helping, at the moment. I try not to read too much on the internet but searched all I could the first year or so. Good luck to you. Wishing you a Happy, healthy New Year!!👍🏻

Dec 2, 2019 · Pericardial Resection/Window - HFpEF, Pericardial Effusion in Heart & Blood Health

Hi Regina. I was diagnosed in January of 2015. I now have chronic Afib and it is being managed by medication. I still am able to walk most days and feel pretty darn good. How about you?

Jul 3, 2019 · Pericardial Resection/Window - HFpEF, Pericardial Effusion 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.
