Some diseases are accompanied with a change in biological parameters of which the dosage is possible in urine or blood. Previous studies have shown changes in parameters in kidney failure. The latter causes an impairment of the heart function later on. We have carried out a study of changes in biological parameters in people suffering exclusively from heart failure without any associated diseases or complications. The
