Cardiac failure disease is a consequence of the inability of the heart to pump the necessary /sufficient volume of blood.

CAUSES

The causes of this disease are mainly diet-related, these includes:

* Absense of essential nutrients needed for the heart to function properly. These nutrients includes: Vitamin B1 and certain minerals such as Calcium, Magnesium, and Potassium

* Excess sodium or salt consumption brings about excess fluids in the body. This generally means greater volume of blood requiring more effort by the heart.
