Congenital heart defect in infants is caused primarily by weight gain. This is because according to medical researchers, weight gain has a deep association with CHF and congenital heart defects. The congenital heart defect, also referred to as CHD and a congenital heart anomaly/disease is a defect in the heart structure that is there since birth.

The signs and symptoms of this disease depends on the type of defect that there is. There are symptoms that can be very threatening to life, while some do not pose such risks. While it does not result in chest pain, the symptoms include fast breathing, blue skin, weight loss, and a dizzy feeling
