In brief: CHF and CKD

Tough to say - depends upon reason for CHF, valve disease, heart muscle disease, and how severe kidney disease is.
These can be managed with careful diet, careful balance of medications, dialysis and kidney transplant - all depends upon age of individual.

In brief: CHF and kidney dz

The combination is not a good one.
Having said that predicting longevity is difficult except when cardiac function is so bad that body perfusion suggests it will be short.
