Why is it important to track your heart failure?

ANSWER

It's important to track your condition carefully when you have heart failure. You'll be able to manage your symptoms better if you keep tabs on your health and make some simple tweaks to your everyday habits. Also, ask your doctor if he can remotely monitor your blood pressure, weight, and heart rate. Many doctors now offer this service.
