There are numerous ways to treat CCF. Primarily, you must ensure that you are compliant with your medication regime, adjust your lifestyle as per the guidelines of your healthcare provider, and monitor your symptoms, vital signs, and changes in your condition.

Managing CCF

Heart failure can be confirmed using several tests, such as an echocardiography, ECG, an exercise stress test, x-rays, angiography, or even blood tests. Once correctly diagnosed, the patient will be given a specific course of treatment that is best for their case. Management will typically involve medications, surgical procedures, lifestyle modifications, and treatment of other medical issues that induce or worsen CCF.

It is then essential to stick to the treatment plan and inform the primary care provider in the event of any new signs or symptoms and specific side effects; so the therapies can be adjusted and modified. For lifestyle modifications, loving oneself is the key to managing Congestive Cardiac Failure, so quit smoking, restrict alcohol, get adequate and quality rest, and reduce the stress in your life.

Dietary choices are another prime factor in managing this condition. CCF patients need to choose foods that are low in sodium. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, and choose fresh foods over processed ones. Eat fresh meats, poultry, fish, egg, milk, and yogurt; speak to a dietician about the quantity of plain rice, pasta, and oatmeal you can have. Also, opt for dry and fresh legumes to up your protein intake.

Even though exercise is of much importance to our general wellbeing, ensure you get the go-ahead from your care provider before doing any form of activity, such as a walk. Activity intolerance is a primary symptom of CCF so you do not want to exhaust yourself.
