Brief Summary:
Individuals who were a part of the investigators Screen-HF study (NCT00400257) whose BNP level are in the top quintile will be offered participation in this study. Participants will be randomised to receive either spironolactone or placebo for three years. Participants will then be monitored for indications of heart failure. It is anticipated that the medication will reduce the development of heart failure in this group.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Effectiveness of Spironolactone in preventing heart failure [ Time Frame: 1 year and 3 year ]
  2. Cost effectiveness of Spironolactone prevention [ Time Frame: 3 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Development of evidence of LV dysfunction, either systolic or diastolic, on echocardiography and/or symptomatic heart failure [ Time Frame: 1 year and 3 year ]
  2. Change in 6 minute walk test between the two groups [ Time Frame: 1 year and 3 years ]
  3. Change in quality of life between the two groups [ Time Frame: 1 year and 3 year ]
  4. Change in left ventricular remodelling parameters [ Time Frame: 1 year and 3 years ]
