Gram is 71 diabetic, renal failure, dyalisis 3x week for past 7 years. Today her heart function is at 25% how long is the life expectancy, options?

No easy answer: She has a number of considerable medical problems, but noone can predict life expectancy with any certainty. Emphasis should be on quality of life. "tight" blood sugar control is not indicated because of the risk of hypoglycemia and because she already has complications. Take care of her eyes so she can enjoy her family. Work with her cardiologist to maximize heart function.

If placed for slow heart rates (sick sinus syndrome) or heart block then no specific reduction in life expectancy is noted.
