A new device, proven safe and effective, has been developed to treat diastolic heart failure.
Research from the American Heart Association indicates that plant-based diets might be the best choice to reduce heart failure, even for people that haven't previously had cardiac conditions. Heart failure occurs gradually and doesn't necessarily mean your heart stops working. Show More Summary

(Reuters Health) - Heart failure patients may be less likely to be hospitalized or die prematurely if they don’t also have diabetes – but even if they do have it, they may still minimize their risk by controlling their blood sugar, a recent study suggests.
(MediaSource) Researchers at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center have come up with a new device, proven safe and effective, to treat diastolic heart failure.
Ganesh Halade has published a functional and structural compendium of the simultaneous changes taking place in the heart, spleen and kidneys in mice during the period of acute heart failure immediately following a heart attack and during the longer period of chronic heart failure that comes next.

IS THERE ANYTHING IT CAN’T DO? Just 1 Cup of Coffee a Week May Lower Risk of Stroke & Heart Failure.
A cup a day is linked to lower risk of heart failure and stroke.
In experiments with mice that have a rodent form of Marfan syndrome, Johns Hopkins researchers report that even modestly increasing stress on the animals' hearts -- at levels well-tolerated in normal mice -- can initiate heart failure. Show More Summary
The ability to reverse fibrosis would turn back some fraction of the progression of age-related failure in heart, kidney, lungs, and other organs. Fibrosis is a form of scarring in tissue that forms in place of functional structures,...Show More Summary
Research looking at three large population studies suggests that drinking coffee is associated with a lower risk of experiencing stroke and heart failure.
The news about coffee just keeps getting better. In a new analysis of one of the country’s largest and longest-running studies, drinking coffee was linked to a lower risk of heart failure, stroke and coronary heart disease. Every extra cup of coffee consumed per day reduced each of these conditions by 8%, 7% and 5%,…
Chrissy Teigen said that her beloved bulldog Puddy is suffering from heart failure, and she asked followers on Twitter to send “happy doggy thoughts.”
Drinking coffee, and diets consisting mostly of vegetables, fruit, beans and whole grains, have both been linked to a lower risk of developing heart failure
And she still got trolled, prompting an angry response from the model.
Chrissy Teigen is asking fans for support after revealing her dog Puddy is at the animal hospital! On Sunday night, the supermodel went on Twitter to share the scary news about her English Bulldog, later announcing he was suffering from heart failure! So sad!!

(American Heart Association) The American Heart Association awarded its Basic Research Prize for 2017 to Walter J. Koch, Ph.D., of the Katz School of Medicine at Temple University in Philadelphia, "for basic cardiovascular studies that have identified novel molecular targets for treating heart failure and advanced prospective therapy to the doorstep of clinical trials."
