Tanya Holmes
I was told my heart is only pumping out 30-35% of its blood and that normal is 50%...?
Is this something I should be very concerned about? Just how bad is 30-35%? I was told my heart is enlarged... my pulse is always over 100... 110-120 is not uncommon for me and the past few months I have been under extreme stress. The echocardiogram that discovered this was done 5 months ago and I kinda worry about what the past few months of extreme stress has done to possibly worsen my condition. I have been having extreme tiredness and lightheadedness lately and since I am out of work I worry about that... Is this all something that would qualify me for disability?

here is the answer for ur question, pls go through http://www.disabilitysecrets.com/win-can-you-get-disability-for-low-poor-ejection-fraction.html

your heart is weak, but with medication ,and diet .you can live a normal life. i was able to receive disability for one year . in the beginning the tiredness light headiness, because it was the side affects of the medication .9 yrs i have heart failure i had 10% pumping power with the meds and the doctors added a pacemaker my health improved and im still here now my heart is pumping 41% percent your heart can regenerate . take care of yourself

Have your doctor fill out the application for TEMPORARY Disability. Do not shoot for permanent disability. You will more then likely get approve more quickly. It lasts for about 6 months and you'll have to re-apply every 6 months.


Some of them do not believe in ENTITLEMENTS! (eventho they apply for benefits in med school)

My foreign doctor did this to me and got my application denied by lying about my EJ and capacity to do work.

After interviewing a number of foreign doc's I've found this attitude prevalent with-in their culture. (Persian) My doc had my State deny my handicap sticker for my wife's car yet turned around and ordered me not to walk no more then a block or no more then 1 flight of stairs!!!!

So be careful of whom you allow to take care of you because you may not know what you're getting into.

On another note:

I wasn't going to say anything because you need SSI but if I don't say this...you're going to go down hill quick and I don't want that. For me, eventho I need SSID and SSI, I rather have life and figure out how I'm going to survive financially latter.

I had a rapid heart beat of 100 and going up every few days. When I performed a kidney cleanse, my heart beat dropped to 71 and stayed there.

For kidney cleanse that's safe for cardiac issues and fluid restriction:

1 Tablespoon of Organic Olive Oil in 1/4 cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice.
Add 1 Tablespoon of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar with Mother,. Stir it all
very well. Drink just before going to bed. Do this every night for 5 days.
You may feel or see soft white globs coming out of your urine stream.
I call them "Kidney Condo's" coming out! LOL!!

Check your pulse and blood pressure daily. (if you have an automatic machine
at home) You should see some improvement. I perform my kidney clean out

Avoid Vitamin C crystal powders and tablets. while taking your meds. Emergent C
is good as well as Camu Camu is good. You need Vitamin C.

Your heart can heal! Sometimes it can take up to a year to recover and another year
to strengthen.

Here are some important things to consider.

Do not eat ANY processed foods that has preservatives in it!
Eat fresh foods.
Drink water and water based beverages that has no additives.
Do not consume white sugar whatsoever. There seems to be some
type of bacteria/virus spreading everywhere causing heart failure! It
feeds off of white sugar based products. Sweeten with Honey

Take some COQ-10, Selenium and Chromium for your heart. Also
add Wheatgerm Oil, 1 Tablespoon in the morning.

Switch to an all alkaline diet and monitor your PH Level via
your urine stream. Keeping your PH with-in the 7.0 range is
good for your body and heart to heal.

These items will help you.

I hope the best for you...

P.S. Food Preservatives and Medications (especially heart meds) leech CO-Q10 out of your heart. CO-Q10 is the gasoline for your heart. The majority of heart failure and heart attacks have one thing in common.....low or no CO-Q10 present!!! After my heart attack and subsequent heart failure, the veins on the back of my hands disappeared. After taking CO-Q10 for a week, my veins reappeared again!!! A sign of good perfusion.... :))

Ejection fraction 30 to 50% is moderate.
* Implantable cardioverter defibrillator may be beneficial to those who are suffering from heart failure.
* Enrol yourselves for stem cell treatment in hospitals where there is facility for the same.
At Delhi's All India Institute of Medical Sciences, over 100 patients suffering from heart attacks and certain cardiovascular diseases have shown significant improvement in their condition after being treated with stem cells extracted from their own bone marrow.
Please note that I am not a medical professional.

The percentage you are mentioning is the Ejection fraction(EF). Ejection fraction is a test that determines how well your heart pumps with each beat.Ejection fraction is usually expressed as a percentage. A normal heart pumps a little more than half the heart’s blood volume with each beat.

A normal left ventricular EF ranges from 50-70%. A LVEF of 65, for example, means that 65% of the total amount of blood in the left ventricle is pumped out with each heartbeat. The LVEF may be lower when the heart muscle has become damaged due to a heart attack, heart muscle disease (cardiomyopathy), or other causes.

An EF of less than 35% increases the risk of life-threatening irregular heartbeats that can cause sudden cardiac arrest (loss of heart function) and sudden cardiac death. An implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) may be recommended for these patients.

Treating Cases with low EF:

Management of the underlying condition (e.g., hypertension, coronary artery disease) is an essential step in the management of a low ejection fraction.

Lifestyle choices that may be recommended to patients with an abnormal ejection fraction include:
# Limiting physical activity until the appropriate level of activity is approved by one’s physician, and then staying as active as possible.
# Scheduling relaxation and rest periods throughout the day.
# Eating a heart-healthy diet and avoiding excessive fluid intake.
# Reducing salt intake.
# Completely avoiding alcohol and/or tobacco use.
# Keeping a daily weight diary and notifying a physician of any weight gain of three or more pounds in a single week (which may indicate fluid retention and the need for an immediate change in treatment).
# All the medications prescribed by your Physician. Get well soon.
