The study is performed to consider the effect of thiamine supplementation on symptoms and signs of patients with heart failure and systolic and diastolic function of left ventricle.
The study is performed to consider the effect of thiamine supplementation versus placebo on symptoms and signs of patients with heart failure systolic and diastolic function of left ventricle.
Heart failure patients (left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF ≤ 40%) are randomized to receive tablets of 300mg or placebo for 1 months in a double-blind fashion. All subjects will be on stable optimal medical therapy according to the present guidelines for at least 3 months before enrolment. At randomization and at study end, echocardiography by a single observer will be performed and assessment of symptoms and signs and quality of life based on self scoring system (from 1 to 7) and objective physical examinations will be done.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Heart failure (HF) is a major cardiovascular disease with increasing prevalence. Thiamine deficiency is common in HF patients. Previous small studies have shown that thiamine supplementati...
Working Hypothesis: a treatment with thiamine improves functional status and heart function of patients with congestive heart failure when on a diuretic treatment.
Heart failure remains an increasing cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States even in the face of recent advances in the treatment of cardiovascular disease. There is an urgent...
Thyrotoxicosis is a hypermetabolic state in which there is increased utilization of thiamine. Thiamine deficiency has been observed in association with hyperthyroidism. Several studies doc...
Subjects will be administered thiamine, thiamine with metformin, and thiamine with trimethoprim to determine whether taking a drug and a vitamin together affects the body's ability to abso...
Loop diuretics remain the cornerstone of congestion management in contemporary chronic heart failure care. However, their use is not supported by high quality data, and there is doubt about the safety...
Heart failure is a condition that is increasing in prevalence in the UK, with high patient mortality rates and frequent hospital admissions. Nurse-led heart failure services help to improve patient ou...
Patients with chronic conditions, such as heart failure, swim regularly and most rehabilitation exercises are conducted in warm hydrotherapy pools. However, little is known about the acute effects of ...
The rate of incidence and prevalence of acute kidney injury is increasing due to an increased number of patients with heart failure. Therefore it is very pertinent to early detect the level of renal i...
A heterogeneous condition in which the heart is unable to pump out sufficient blood to meet the metabolic need of the body. Heart failure can be caused by structural defects, functional abnormalities (VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION), or a sudden overload beyond its capacity. Chronic heart failure is more common than acute heart failure which results from sudden insult to cardiac function, such as MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
Disease of CARDIAC MUSCLE resulting from chronic excessive alcohol consumption. Myocardial damage can be caused by: (1) a toxic effect of alcohol; (2) malnutrition in alcoholics such as THIAMINE DEFICIENCY; or (3) toxic effect of additives in alcoholic beverages such as COBALT. This disease is usually manifested by DYSPNEA and palpitations with CARDIOMEGALY and congestive heart failure (HEART FAILURE).
Enlargement of the HEART, usually indicated by a cardiothoracic ratio above 0.50. Heart enlargement may involve the right, the left, or both HEART VENTRICLES or HEART ATRIA. Cardiomegaly is a nonspecific symptom seen in patients with chronic systolic heart failure (HEART FAILURE) or several forms of CARDIOMYOPATHIES.
A severe irreversible decline in the ability of kidneys to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal failure, either acute (KIDNEY FAILURE, ACUTE) or chronic (KIDNEY FAILURE, CHRONIC), requires HEMODIALYSIS.
Heart failure caused by abnormal myocardial relaxation during DIASTOLE leading to defective cardiac filling.
Cardiology is a specialty of internal medicine. Cardiac electrophysiology : Study of the electrical properties and conduction diseases of the heart. Echocardiography : The use of ultrasound to study the mechanical function/physics of the h...
