Hello Digymon, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com

The saggy heart your doctor means is probably heart failure. Heart failure is a condition in which there is a decrease in the pumping power of the heart so that blood cannot be pumped in the amount needed by the body. Some things that can cause heart failure include:

coronary heart disease heart attack hypertension heart valve disease cardiomyopathy myocarditis congenital heart disease/congenital cardiac arrhythmias other diseases such as HIV, hypothyroidism, hemochromatosis, amyloidosis, and others

Some heart failure conditions can be repaired or not, depending on how much damage has been done to the heart. However, the symptoms that appear can be managed with medication. Drugs that are proven to improve the condition of heart failure include drugs from the ACE-inhibitor class, beta blockers, diuretics, aldosterone antagonists. Sometimes other drugs such as digoxin can also be given, although this drug has not been shown to improve the prognosis of patients with heart failure. In some conditions, such as valvular heart disease or congenital heart disease, valve replacement surgery may be performed to prevent further heart damage. In very severe conditions of heart failure, a heart transplant is necessary to treat it.

Some of the things your mother can do right now include:

Controlling blood sugar by taking diabetes medication regularly according to the doctor's advice Take heart medication regularly according to doctor's recommendations Check with the doctor according to the schedule given Low salt diet. Lose weight if your mother is overweight Stop smoking and drinking alcohol Exercise regularly with a certain intensity (need to consult a doctor)
