Hi... Welcome to healthcaremagic forum...
The effectiveness of the heart functions is determined by the ejection fraction
value. A value of above 50% is considered normal... Any value less than this means a failing heart.
Numerous conditions and factors are responsible to induce heart failure
. Though most often very little can be done to improve the ejection fraction; modifications to improve his symptoms and to prevent progress of the condition are possible.
is a procedure done to know if there are blocks in the blood circulation of the heart - one of the causes of heart failure. Corrections of severe blocks/main arterial blocks are necessary to prevent progress of the condition and to achieve better standard and quality of living.
Apart from angiography, various other lifestyle and dietary modification in the form of proper weight, cholesterol, sugar, blood pressure and stress management
may also be necessary.
Consult a cardiologist
who will guide you through all these tests and suggest you the necessary changes.
Hope this helps you in understanding the condition and helps you in making the right decision.
