Are there any members here who have been diagnosed with Heart Failure with preserved Ejection Fraction (HFpEF)?
After seeking a second opinion from another cardiologist, I was diagnosed with HFpEF and I’m on spironolactone and Lasix to keep the fluid load off my heart, I’m walking more, and trying to watch my sodium intake. I also recently had a very candid discussion with my electrophysiologist recently about HFpEF.
However, the cardiologist I had been seeing kept insisting that my weight gain of 10+ pounds last fall was just me, in his own words, “getting fat and old.” And that I needed to stop eating junk food, which I don’t.
Any insights as to your experiences with HFpEF?

Hi. I was recently diagnosed and still learning about the condition. I look forward to following your story.
