Exercise safe for heart failure patients (via Srinivas Reddy)
Prior to being diagnosed with sarcoidosis and then with heart failure, I went to the gym everyday and did the treadmill, elliptical and all the weight machines. That all came to an end when the heart failure was diagnosed, because I was basically told that I had to take it easy. It has now been almost three years since my heart failure has been diagnosed, and now 30 pounds heavier. I recently rejoined a gym, but I know I can’t do the weights any more, but the treadmill and elliptical are okay, especially with the new studies there are out there. Read about the study on heart failure and exercise below.
