Re: Hello from Portland Oregon

Hi, newheart4me. Hello from sunny South Florida! Congratulations on being able to improve your Heart Failure, despite also having COPD and Cardiomyopathy; from a fellow Heart Failure patient.

Do you mind if I ask your age and what medications you take?

I'm close to 70 and have had Heart Failure for over 25 years, along with permanent Atrial Fibrillation, among other things. I take 25mg Coreg, bid; and 40mg Lasix three times a week; and .125mg Digoxin bd.

Welcome to the boards! Wish it could be for a nicer reason!
CHF, A-Fib, HBP, Diabetes, Asthma doing great

⇒ Avoid irritants/allergens/stimulants
⇒ Ten years- 30,182 BPs
⇒ 1200cal 4 egg vegetarian diet 42% fat;39% carb
