      That's called orthopnea and it can be an indication your heart failure is worsening. If you need more pillows to prop you up or you have to sleep in your recliner it's not a good sign

    You don't mention why the kidneys react as they do?

    • JC Fred
      JC Fred 3 years ago +3

      That's why the meds/diet for heart failure are mostly related to counteract the effect of RAAS system: ACEI, ARBS, low sodium diet, lesser fluid intake, etc. And at the same time, these medications can cause injury to your kidneys. So must must have regular kidney blood works so proper adjustments can be made.
