in Medscape: “Diet Exercise Boost Stamina in Obese With Heart Failure and Preserved EF”

Start of the article: “WINSTON SALEM NC — In a randomized trial of 100 older mainly female obese patients with heart failure and preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) 20 weeks of supervised diet or exercise or both led to weight reduction and importantly improved maximum aerobic capacity compared with controls[1]. The combined interventions resulted in a additive increase in exercise capacity defined as VO2max (peak oxygen consumption).” ;
