My mom was diagnosed with severe heart failure wit an ejection fraction of 15% in 2007.In 2010 when things got worse for her i discovered your forum and started her on vitamn c, coq10 and lysine.
Her response to these supplements was excellent, she regained her energy and life went back to normal for her, however the past month has been difficult for her again and she is once again losing energy and going downhill, her BUN level has gone up so has her bilirubin, she is breathless, has sleepless nights , is bloated again and tired throughout the day.
She is currently taking
vitamin c crystals (GNC)- 11-12gm per day
CoQ10 (GNC)- 1+1 (400mg each) with olive oil
Its been almost 10 months since she quit taking lysine saying swallowing the tablet and digesting it was hard for her.
What is lacking in her protocol and why has she regressed despite taking vitamin C. She has 4-5 bowel movements and is on a low salt and sugar diet.
