Brief Answer: Please follow the suggestions below... Detailed Answer: Hi, I have read your health inquiry, and could say that if you take your medications regularly, your overall will be improved. Please bare in mind that bad lifestyle and diet habits, irregular taking of drugs would worsen your situation. You need to have patience as that will take some time for the improvement to appear (usually after 3 to6 months). So, try to avoid bad habits such as alcohol or smoking as they will aggravate the situation. Go on with the healthy foods as you are mentioning, try to eat slowly, often and small portions. In addition, you can add some light physical activity as walking, however, you should avoid moderate to intense exercise. At last, you should keep in touch with your cardiologist for continuous check ups. Hope it answered to your inquiry! If you have more questions, I'd be happy to assist you further! Dr.Benard
