Heart failure: Diastolic dysfunction is a type of heart failure, you need to be monitored by a cardiologist on a regular basis, important to distinguish systolic from diastolic, watch for symptoms, increase shortness of breath, leg swelling, etc, Weight loss, quitting smoking, dietary changes (less salt intake, fat, etc), exercise, reducing alcohol, may all help.

Rx and Lifestyle: ACE-i- angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, angiotensin receptor blockers, diuretics, and beta blockers. Lifestyle modifications such as weight loss, smoking cessation, dietary changes, limiting alcohol intake, and exercise are equally effective in preventing diastolic heart failure
Dr. Stanley Berger
Cardiology 33 years experience
Nutrientdiet&fitness: Difficult question as we do not as yet have a proven cure for LV diastolic dysfunction. If cause known such as hypertension, valvular disease, diabetes, etc., this should be treated. In addition, moderate exercise and diet, particularly addressing the nutritional gaps (mineral, vitamin) and reduction of fat and cholesterol (directly associated with DD) may have a role in the long-term treatment.
Dr. Stephen Sisselman
Internal Medicine 25 years experience
HTN: Grade 1 Diastolic Dysfunction is a failure of relaxation of left ventricle Usually seen in hypertension (elevated blood pressure). The best treatment is making sure that blood pressure is in a normal range, ideally less than 120/80. A low salt diet is appropriate. As far a home remedy - nothing specific - sensible diet and exercise and weight loss would be recommended.

What is the best technique to put on contacts?

Dr. Alfred H. Rivera
Ophthalmology 40 years experience
Follow instructions.: The best technique is to follow the exact instructions explained to you by your eye doctor when he or she demonstrated to you how to insert and remove them at the time of your acquiring them. Even with that, some people just have a harder time than others, especially if they have long eyelashes. I am an ophthalmologist and i wear contact lenses at times. I am not very good at putting them on.
