Anybody Have Cure For Arthritis,diabetes And Heart Disease?
A MyHeartDiseaseTeam Member asked a question 💭

Good day

I do not want to complain but enough seems to be enough.
I have been diabetic type 1 for 32 years. This started my heart disease in 2009 (stent) and 2021 (double heart attack + stent).
This past week it was like all aches and pains in my joints (hands and feet)

Please give me a home remedy for at least one of these conditions ...

I have had enough

BTW., they use cayenned pepper in commercial applications for diabetic nerve pain.

ICD Question
A MyHeartDiseaseTeam Member asked a question 💭

I had an ICD placed in 2020 because of lower ejection fraction (HF) is was 15 percent, now 40 still low. I was wondering has someone ever had their ICD removed if their condition improved, I know normal EF is in the 50's and 60's, but can decrease again so an ICD can be permanent. I forgot to ask my cardiologist have some ICD been removed. I know they removed them if you are in hospice or any situation like that. I just wish they were sometimes temporary. Take Care all.

Nuclear Test.
A MyHeartDiseaseTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hello everyone, I haven’t been on here in awhile. I’m about to go for a nuclear stress test, wondering if anyone can calm my nerves down and let me know that it’s not a big deal? Or is it? I pretty know what they are doing (kinda’) just trying to get some advice and or suggestions, I’m not liking that it may be close to 4 hours. Really would like to know how someone feels with these injections, it’s giving me anxiety to be truthful.
