FS and EF are in the range that idicates a left ventricle functional disorder with the negative structual size of the left ventricle (FS) and EF is a blood volume measurement with each heartbeat.  The measurements' values aren't crtical at the current time, but the decreasing trend should be of concern and whether or not the diet is a problem would better be answered by your father's cardiologist.  Normal EF is 50 to 70% (percent pumped wtih each heartbeat) and FS above 30% is considered normal and 26 to 30% is mild decrease.

If you have any follow-up questions, you are welcome to respond.  Thanks for the question...take care.
