Diabetes & Heart Failure

Are you frustrated taking strong medications and still feeling weakness, breathing problem, rapid heart beat? Unable to walk due to shortness of breath ? The plaque formation in the blood vessels hinders normal pumping of the heart, weakens the heart muscles finally causes heart blocks, attacks and heart failure. This process of narrowing arteries begins 15-16 years before you actually experience symptoms.

A weak heart has these symptoms :

1 Shortness of breath with activity or when lying down.

2 Fatigue and weakness.

3 Swelling in the legs, ankles and feet 

4 Rapid or irregular heartbeat. 

5 Reduced ability to exercise.

6 Persistent cough or wheezing with white or pink blood-tinged mucus.

7 Swelling of the belly area (abdomen)

8 Rapid weight gain

9 Pounding, chest pain if heart attack

The causes of sudden heart attack or heart failure can be :

• Allergic reactions

• Any illness that affects the whole body

• Blood clots in the lungs

• Severe infections

• Long term use of certain medications

• Viral infections that attack the heart muscle

If you have Diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or obesity, that can weaken your heart muscles and increase your risk of heart disease like heart block, sudden heart attack or heart failure. When the blood circulation affects the kidneys, it starts shrinking and cause severe kidney problems and finally kidney failure.
