How does kidney blood flow affect heart failure?
We want to learn how blood flow in the kidneys might affect heart failure. We will test some people with normal heart function and some with stable heart failure. We will also test some people with diabetes. The tests are a blood test, a urine test, an MRI, an echocardiogram, and an ultrasound. We will also collect information about the medications you take and other medical problems you might have.
