Secret Of Heart Failure Revealed

It is human nature that we want to know answers to everything. This gains special// importance when we talk about our own self.

How often have we questioned the diseases that make our precious body their home? The answers just do not come.

Researchers in a breakthrough have unraveled the mystery surrounding heart failure. They found that in the early stages of heart failure, the heart uses too much fatty acid and not enough carbohydrate; and then, later, it doesn't use enough fat, reports UPI.

Gary Lopaschuk, a pharmacologist and professor in the University of Alberta Department of Pediatrics, and his colleagues say they've discovered that the type of "fuel" the heart uses can contribute to the severity of heart failures.

This will pave away for future research in preventive medicine. This will prove a boon in treatment of heart ailments.

Normally, a heart derives energy from a balance of fatty acids and carbohydrates, specifically glucose.

"Many forms of heart diseases have many pharmacological therapeutic approaches to treat it," Lopaschuk said. "But heart failure is a difficult one.

"If you're diagnosed with heart failure, your five-year prognosis isn't good; there's a high likelihood of mortality," he said. "So there's a major push to find new approaches to treat heart failure."

He said heart failure does not necessarily mean the heart completely fails, but rather is a condition in which the heart fails to provide itself with enough blood under certain conditions.
