The odds of WML increased as the period with heart failure
lengthened: from 1.3 for a diagnosis less than three years, to 1.7 for a diagnosis of four to six years, and 2.9 for a diagnosis longer than six years.
PHARM-CHF randomised controlled trial on improving adherence to heart failure
medications, ReBIC-1 randomised trial on the safety of diuretic withdrawal in chronic heart failure

is marked by progressive weakening or stiffening of the heart muscle and the organ's gradual loss of blood-pumping ability.
Rajan's Heart Failure
risk ([R.sup.HF]) score = EF x e-GFR x Hb/NT-proBN predicts the risk for heart failure
with preserved ejection fraction and HFrEF and is available online.
Fonarow is a member of the writing group for the ACC/AHA guidelines on management of heart failure
. They recommend as a risk reduction strategy identification of patients with stage A pre-heart failure
and addressing their risk factors: treating their hypertension and lipid disorders, gaining control over metabolic syndrome, discouraging heavy alcohol intake, and encouraging smoking cessation and regular exercise (J Am Coll Cardiol.
In the prospective observational Physicians' Health Study of nearly 21,000 men, adherence to six modifiable healthy lifestyle factors was associated with an incremental stepwise reduction in lifetime risk of developing heart failure
. The six lifestyle factors--a forerunner of the AHAs Life's Simple 7--were maintaining a normal body weight, stopping smoking, getting exercise, drinking alcohol in moderation, consuming breakfast cereals, and eating fruits and vegetables.

Occurrence is a rating, on a scale of 1 to 10, which describes the likelihood that a specific failure
cause will occur .
According to research presented at Heart Failure
2016 and the 3rd World Congress on Acute Heart Failure
, researchers from the UK reported that heart failure
patients who exercised lived longer compared to those who did not--regardless of heart failure
severity, age, or gender.
