15% is too low and he is falling under high risk category. Besides, he is diabetic also. Diabetic patients are more prone to get heart attack than non diabetic. But, do not leave any hope. we have treated patients with 20% and it has gone up to 55% with ayurvedic remedy. Send a mail to for details.

Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
It is difficult to pin point the time for which he will survive. Even a mild tension can aggravate a heart attack and cause death or he might remain on life saving machines for even six months or more. Just pray to GOD for him.
