In brief: Depends

Congestive heart failure or CHF can be from many things.
Different types include systolic dysfxn wich means a weak heart. Usually from a virus, heart attack, or post partum.Diastolic dysfxn where the heart is stiff is usually due to hyer tension. High out put heart failure is when things such as hyperthyroidism or anemia . So your question is very broad and you need to narrow it down
