LIVING WITH HEART FAILURE
Heart failure is not the end of the road.
Many patients with heart failure continue to live their lives to the full – working, travelling and doing the things that they love. Learn more about strategies for living with heart failure.
Have your symptoms changed or worsened?
As someone living with HF, it is important to keep a close eye on your symptoms and track any changes or developments in them. These changes can influence the plan your doctor will outline for you. Also, with new scientific advances, the possibility for changes to your treatment regimen may also arise. For this reason, it’s always important to keep on top of your condition and symptoms.1
There are plenty of others, just like you, who live full lives with HF.
For people living with HF, it is important to stick to a management plan and lifestyle changes as the disease can progress. This can be the tough part – maintaining this regime. Why not hear from other people like you, long into their diagnosis, and see how they have learned to manage their condition?
“I'm very determined, I want to live my life as best I can”
“Get them to quit smoking and drinking, it is a must”
“Everything can be quite normal and you can enjoy life as it is”
It’s a marathon, not a sprint. But you don’t have to run it alone.
The heart failure struggle is real and the road, long. It is not always easy to keep on the positive side. But HF doesn’t have to be a burden. If you’ve already been living with your HF diagnosis for several years, it can be difficult to constantly maintain a healthy lifestyle and disease management regimen. We have gathered a number of links to helpful social channels and local advocacy groups that you may find useful to help keep you on the right path.
