Hi. I have a crt device fitted eighteen months ago.  It’s complicated as I also have diabetes and kidney disease, but I find I’m still easily exhausted.  I'm only 64 and not quite ready to give up on it all just yet.  I can’t get answers as my docs are so pleased with my improved EF.  One just talks settings, the other medications.  My GP says I shoukd just accept what is.  So not me.

CRT

Sadly, in spite of all the asertions to the contrary, some patients just don't see improvement with a CRT. I'm one of those. There are a lot of factors involved, for example my mitral valve is leakin sqeakin and smokin so no help for me. However you have some othe factors which may be contributing or causing your problems. It takes patoence and working with one (1) doctor to sort out whats going on before you can say for sure what the cause is. Be insistent and assertive

But I think it will make me feel a lot better. My stamina to walk is already better, even right after surgery. They had me walk all around the floor before they would release me. I did so without being exhausted and winded the way I had been.
