Hi! It means you have chronic heart failure with very low heart's ejection fraction. A normal heart's ejection fraction may be between 55 and 70. Heart failure has developed because of the heart attack, blood pressure, etc. Kindly consult your doctor and take the medications regularly with salt restriction and control of both blood pressure and diabetes.
