Live with peace of mind again
Can I still enjoy life when suffering from heart failure?
How to live with heart failure?
People with heart failure can still enjoy life. However, it requires lifestyle adjustments:
Eat less saturated fats and be careful with the use of salt. In most cases, avoidance of alcohol is advised.
Being overweight puts an extra load on the heart. In addition to a healthy diet, exercise helps control your weight.
Stress can increase blood pressure and should be avoided in case of heart failure. Learn to handle tension and avoid stressful situations.
Syndo. Helps You Enjoy Life Again
The Syndo app is packed with useful tips, exercises, recipes, and more. Your weight, blood pressure, and heart rate are closely monitored, and you are automatically notified if deviations in your vitals occur. Finally, you will be assigned a personal Syndo coach. This certified nurse will help you adjust your lifestyle step by step during your weekly or monthly telephone sessions.
Recognize The Signals
Signs that may indicate heart failure include long-term fatigue, shortness of breath, or fluid retention in the body.
Although the first two signals are fairly easy to determine, it is slightly more difficult to recognize whether your body is retaining fluid.
Gaining several pounds in a few days, a bloated stomach, less appetite, urinating several times at night, and thick ankles or feet may be an indication.
Do you recognize one or more of these signals? Then contact your doctor.
A New Balance
With the right lifestyle adjustments, you can still do the things you love (cycling, playing with grandchildren, etc), but you will have to find a new balance between rest and activity.
You have to learn to be more careful with your energy, accept certain restrictions, and take your time for a number of things. Your Syndo coach can help you find this new balance step by step.
