After months of job searching, I maybe offered employment. The problem is I will have to have a medical in a few weeks because you have to be phisicially fit and sometimes I have high blood pressure....
The heart does not repair. He probably had a heart attack at some time, or high blood pressure or valvular disease.
not really, it can a little bit if the underlying cause is fixed but reverting completely back to normal doesnt happen. and he can probably slow down progression if he listens to the doctor and makes neccesary lifestyle changes
No once the heart tissue is damage it does not repair it's self, lifestyle changes improve your condition and adds years to your life.Have a look at this site, it's regular people with heart failure for people with heart failure----CHFpatients.com....you will find this to be a gold mine of information.......Good Luck
Very unlikely. It can be helped to stop any futher damage with proper medical treatment and sound advice which should be followed.
Well first off...is he ready to make these changes mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually???
If he is...check out www.drweil.com for some answers on anything to do with health and well-being. He wrote '8 Weeks to Optimim Health' and scores of other books and he speaks of the body's way of repairing itself through nutrition and other wholistic means.
Check it out and good-luck.
I don't think that the heart will repair itself, however, it can be managed with lifestyle and dietary changes and medications. People can live fairly normal lives with CHF, they just have to be careful. Make sure that he has regular visits to his cardiologist or whomever is treating him. They will tell you when to return for a check up. He may want to invest in a home blood pressure machine. They are priced sensibly at various stores.
As long as he takes care of himself from this point out, he should have a fairly normal life. Complications may arise when he is ill and when he ages. Your medical team can help you through these processes. Best wishes.
