Re: Life expectancy with low EF

The lower the Ejection Fraction, the weaker the heart. One can strengthen their heart with effective, appropriate medication, a very healthy diet; and avoiding stimulants and other things that cause stress for the heart.

So..... life expectancy is based on how well you take care of yourself, the quality of your medical care, the overall condition of your heart, and if you have any other health problems such as Diabetes, Insulin Resistance, Organ Failure, etc.
