Sharon Ley Dilated Cardiomyopathy Post Pregnancy

Hi Corrij Thanks for your speedy reply. I have started back walking and slowly reintroducing weights. Your email re supps was a sobre reminder! I've read all the research before and know how important these supps are but it's amazing I've let them slip. Well I do know why, I've been feeling so much ...

Sharon Ley (Dilated Cardiomyopathy Post Pregnancy)

Hi Corrij, Willie Just a quick message to let you know that I am going well. I haven't had an echo for a while, the last in June 07 showed a slight improvement in EF (29 up from 20-25). However, I feel my symptoms continue to be manageable. I've been lazy and not been exercising regularly since Nove...

Hi Corrij I'm well thanks for asking! I feel as though I'm cruising at a decent level now. Have enough energy to get what I need done and symptoms are minimal. I still grab an afternoon rest when I can but my energy has kept up with demands of moving house and cleaning, restoring our old one. I did ...

Dose taking

Hi Geoff You don't know me but I like to follow other CHFers on the site. Just chuckling about your question with how to take the amino acids. I had the same nightmarish schedule until I found out I could take the whole dose for a specific amino acid at one time. I was seriously challenged by the wh...

Hi Folks Just updating you on how things are going for me. I had an echo last week, it had been 6 months since last echo and 12 months since diagnosis. My EF is the same at about 25. Since last echo, the size of my left ventricle is the same when relaxed (I think about 75mm) but slightly smaller whe...

Hi Folks Just a quick question from me: is it OK to substitute R-alpha lipoic acid for alpha lipoic acid? If so, what is the dose? I've finished Rehab and am about to venture out on my own with my fitness program. I'm feeling much more positive and my health seems to be on an even keel. Hope you're ...

Sharon Ley (Dilated Cardiomyopathy Post Pregnancy)

Hi Corrij, Willie, Marion Just a quick note to say I've started cardiac rehab classes esp for heart failure and so far am feeling really good! I doubt much has changed with my EF but I worry less about it and more about how I'm feeling. Life is feeling almost normal (apart from shovelling tons of ca...

Guido

Hi Guido I agree with Marion, you're incredibly impressive to have given the stem cell therapy a shot! Maybe this therapy will deliver better results in the future as I know it is still early days and thanks to brave people like you it is being developed. I too recently experienced disappointment wi...

Sharon Ley (Dilated Cardiomyopathy Post Pregnancy)

Hi Corrij Just saw your messages..thank you! Been off line for a while. After a murky (grey, foggy) few weeks after surgery, I now feel pretty good. Actually really good. I think recovering from surgery took a little while, physically and psychologically. I no longer notice the weight or sensitivity...

Sharon Ley (Dilated Cardiomyopathy Post Pregnancy)

Hi Corrij Thanks for your concern! Yes I had the ICD implanted on 27th and I'm doing OK. It's taking me time to get used to the feeling of the device, it's quite heavy but I'm sure my brain will rewire to ignore this. It does feel good to have this extra protection. My risk of sudden death is a lot ...

Sharon Ley (Dilated Cardiomyopathy Post Pregnancy)

Oh Bless you Corrij! Thank you for your speedy email. I've had a few nights of little sleep with the anxiety and of course, now actually feel as bad as my ultrasound results! But I know I'll feel much better after a good nights's sleep. What you say makes perfect sense, I was unable to ask this of m...

Sharon Ley (Dilated Cardiomyopathy Post Pregnancy)

Hi Corrij Thanks for your advice. The diarrohea has passed, I think I had a low level virus. Is there a difference between acetyl l-carnitine and l-carnitine? Sorry to be pedantic but I want to make sure I have it right. Which of these two should I be taking? I have been taking the l-carnitine (not ...

Sharon Ley (Dilated Cardiomyopathy Post Pregnancy)

Hi Corrij Thanks for your advice. I am definitely feeling consistently better and feel sure that this is since stepping up the protocol. I have two questions: Is carnitine tartrate the same as l-carnitine? I'm currently taking l-carnitine but wonder if I can use carnitine tartrate when this supply f...

Hello Corrij Trust you had a relaxing holiday! I'm feeling much better on the protocol so far but just had two questions... 1. What form of carnitine should I be taking? I am currently taking L-carnitine but have since read about acetyl-l-carnitine and also carnitine tartrate. The tartrate is availa...

Sharon Ley (Dilated Cardiomyopathy Post Pregnancy)

Hi Marion That's great news about your atria and right ventricle! Amazing they have returned to normal in such a short time. And as you say, your left ventricle is improving slowly, a big difference from 20-31%. I suppose the LV takes longer because it is the hardest worker. You must feel so much be...
