  • From this study (8 months ago):

  • I am 55 years old and have been the same weight for the last 20 years. Now that I am taking medicine for my congestive heart failure I have gained 15 pounds. I have always been healthy and take good care of my body and weight. Haven't done anything different just medicine. I feel very uncomfortable with the extra 15 pounds. Not sure how people handle the extra weight.
