... in response to Diastolic Dysfunction Diagnosis
  1. Shirley Gasaway Tucker Shirley Gasaway Tucker United States says:

    I just found out that I have Grade 1 (Mild) Distolic Disfunction and my Cardiologist further sta?ted my heart is "stiff".  I had a normal LV ejection fraction on the Echo.  My question is two fold.  In reading about it, there is a progression up to Grace 4.  Can you tell me if this progression has been studied and a time line extablished?  Next, is there treatment, meds., or surgery that can help patients with this disease?  I have had a heart attack several years ago and have Coronary Artery Disease.  Thank you for any information you can give me.  Shirley
