Is there a cure for heart failure?


The short answer is no. Congestive heart failure is acondition that is a collection of signs and symptoms. Because heart failure is not a disease, it can’t really be“cured,” although this doesn’t mean that CHF can’t besuccessfully treated. In some cases, heart failure can even be completely reversed, although this is less common. Treatment of underlying causative factors such aslow thyroid hormone or blocked coronary arteries andreducing risk factors such as high blood pressure, smoking, and alcohol intake can make a big differencein treating or reversing the symptoms of congestive heart failure.
