Live Well with Heart Failure

Living Well with Heart Failure

Congestive heart failure, or CHF, is a condition in which the heart does not pump as well as it should. Heart failure interferes with the kidney's normal function of eliminating excess sodium and waste products from the body.LiveWrllWithHeartFailureSummer-WEB As a result, the body retains more fluid, which can lead to swelling in the ankles and legs. Fluid also collects in the lungs, which can cause shortness of breath. 

You Can Take Control

In Living Well with Heart Failure, facilitators help participants understand and manage the common causes and symptoms of Heart Failure. Learn new routines, including:

  • The importance of medications
  • Weight control
  • How to find the hidden salt in foods
  • Staying active
  • Managing stress.

Taking an active role in your health can have many benefits. The more you and your healthcare provider know about your heart failure, the better treatment and care you'll receive for your condition.
