In brief: CHF
Treatment depends on what the cause of the CHF is.
Could be surgical, could be medical. Systolic CHF is different from diastolic CHF and valvar stenosis CHF is different from valvar insufficiency chf. Virtually all kinds have diuretic as part of the treatment.

In brief: Too complicated
Congestive heart failure (chf), unlike what we once thought, is not one entity.
As such, and because there are multiple forms of congestive heart failure, one can not devise a -one size fits all- treatment plan for "congestive heart failure". The specifics are too long and complicated for this forum, your cardiologist should decide the proper course of treatment for the particular form of chf.
