Hi. Systolic dysfunction is treated and controlled with a combination of medication. Either an ACE or an ARB along with a beta blocker such as Coreg. Spironolactone is also beneficial. These meds help improve the LV
Diuretics are used to control fluid retention. LBBB is a chronic condition. There’s no specific treatment for that.
Does that answer your question?

Can it be halted or is it a death sentence

It’s only mild. Can I stay at mild for many many years with healthy lifestyle
What is your ejection fraction? That determines one’s prognosis. Also the cause of the systolic dysfunction is important to know. Is it due to hypertension, diabetes, coronary artery artery disease, etc. if the causes of a heart failure or well-controlled such as treating hypertension and diabetes and the ejection fraction is only mildly reduced, then using the above medications can stabilize the left ventricle for many years.

It’s only mildly reduced it’s not low. I have hypertension no artery deaease they are normal from ct scan. I think it’s 50 something -
A normal ejection fraction is 55% or higher. If you maintain a normal blood pressure and are treated with the medications that I mentioned, then I would expect to your left ventricle to improve and you will live a long healthy life.
