how does the doctor determine if you have congestive heart failure ?

how does the doctor determine if you have congestive heart failure? I am on high blood pressure pill Norvasc but I also have to take a fluid pill and if I don t I feel like a toad , does this mean my heart is not working as well as it use to? If anyone can help with some experinces they have been through it would be appreciated. I hate going to the doctor.

I wouldn't trust your doctor's recommendations for diet unless they agree with this doctor's recommendations: http://www.drmcdougall.com He has saved many lives just by altering people's diets and getting them to exercise moderately. Go to the "Star McDougallers" tab and read some of his success stories. Many folks have gotten off their meds just by taking proper care of their bodies. I'm a type 2 diabetic and, when I'm following the diet and exercising, I don't have to take my medication.... True story.
