My genes are rubbish. Since finding my biological family and discovering the medical issues they all had.. I'm amazed I am still alive. Nonetheless I'm doing pretty well. MY arteries were clean last time I had the cardiac catheterisation, but I have enlargement and a reduced ejection fraction (meaning the pump isnt doing its job properly and hasnt for years). Various GPs have known this but nobody started any treatment until recently when a cardiologist put me on a beta blocker, some diuretics (2 kinds) and said if I could lose weight it might help, but might not. Diabetes has taken a bit of a back seat to my lack of stamina and heart/lung congestion.
