Hi weighing yourself and getting on a diuretic is not testing you. Did she run tests? Do you know??

Hello,
For congestive heart failure diagnosis, certain investigations are required and these include ECG, chest x-ray, echocardiography , nuclear medicine studies and maybe a coronary angiography (using dye inside of the blood vessels that can be seen using X-ray methods). You need to talk to your cardiologist and get these investigations done to rule out CHF.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

>>>>>My cardiologist suggested I weigh myself each morning after I had had congested heart failure years ago..  An increase of several pounds could indicate the heart is in a failure mode, and I was asked to contact the doctor if that condition occurred.
