Diet and Exercise in Heart Failure Patients
What We Do
This is a clinical trial examining the relationship of diet (high fiber DASH diet) and high-intensity exercise on improving ejection fraction. Subjects with will be randomized into one of three groups (1=diet and exercise, 2=diet only, 3=exercise only) for four weeks and changes in VO2 peak in HfpEF patients will be measured to explore if there is an additive effect of diet combined with exercise. We are developing the DASH diet plan and prepare, measure, and evaluate food intake.
