How to improve EF

I have been diagnoised with EF of 30% recently. What are the remedies of improving the EF ?

Can EF be improved at all?

Can exercises help?

Hi,
There are definite ways to improve the EF or at least prevent further deterioration in EF. This can be done with the use of diuretics which clear the extra fluid in the body through urine, ACE inhibitors like ramipril/enalapril which ensure a decreased constriction of the blood vessels and thus a reduced workload on the heart, digoxin which helps in improving the contractility of the heart, anti-hypertensives t ensure the blood pressure is under control (if you’re hypertensive also). Mild exercises like walking also tends to improve the heart functions. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
