I have 35% heart function?
Dr. says 35% heart function but I would like to know what I can do if anything to improve the percentage ? How long would I have if I dont take care of myself. eat right and exercise?

Hopefully you were prescribed medications to prevent further damage. You need to eat a low fat low salt diet and try some moderate exercise as tolerated. 35% function is quite low. It is important to control the symptoms so you can lead as normal a life as possible. Make sure to see a cardiologist.

I wish that you have given more information. You are most likely stating that your left ventricular ejection fraction is 35%. People usually do not have much difficulty as long as the LVEF is above 40%. There are a variety of medications which most often increase the LVEF to 50% or higher. I assume that your physician must have you on medications to increase the LVEF. If I may be of further assistance however please let me know. I wish you the very best of health and in all things may God bless.
