I have congestive heart failure and my kidney function is low

I have CHF and my kidney function is low. Need to improve KF. Heart hates fluid Kidneys love fluid. Ideas? I have cardiomyopathy and my kidney function is very low. I am on coumandin, coreg, cozaar, digitek, ++. Since my kidney function has been bad, I have had gout . Can t drink cranberry juice with coumadin or take anti-inflamatory meds. Stopped eating red meat . Don t want to have a kidney transplant with my heart transplant. Any ideas or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

no need to give pushkar mula as this is not case of CAD

This Sucks. My best advice is to limit salt and fluids- watch your food labels. It will take effort and time on your part - with your doctors help to find a right balance. I would also suggest doing the kidney transplant along with your heart if you have that option. CHF will not go away even if your heart is strong. The extra fluid that your heart has to pump since your kidneys are not filtering will stress it out. Ask your doctor about a diuretic too.
