Cardiomyopathy - Decoding the Types + Treatment

Cardiomyopathy -  Decoding the Types + Treatment

The heart muscle is the central pumping machine that ensures that blood flow throughout the body is maintained and all other organs have a regular supply. One of the conditions that can cause this organ to malfunction is cardiomyopathy, wherein the heart is unable to pump the blood to all parts of the body. This condition can even lead to heart failure and is something that needs to be addressed and diagnosed quickly.

Symptoms of Cardiomyopathy
Early stages of cardiomyopathy may be difficult to detect externally, although it may be slowly reducing your heart’s capacity. Symptoms that start showing in later stages may include:

  1. Constant fatigue, even without physical activity
  2. Fluid may build up and thus cause bloating within the body
  3. Persistent coughing while lying down
  4. You may have irregular heartbeats that may sometimes be quite rapid
  5. Due to the lack of blood supply, you may feel lightheaded, dizzy and might even cause you to faint
  6. Even the slightest of exertions will cause breathlessness and exhaustion and you may even feel this symptom while at rest
  7. Intermittent chest pain

Causes of Cardiomyopathy
Causes of this condition may vary from patient to patient, although certain common factors include:

  1. Genetic reasons where one or both parents are susceptible to this condition
  2. Metabolic problems such as obesity, diabetes or thyroid problems
  3. Substance abuse such as anabolic steroids, amphetamines cocaine or even the consumption of excessive alcohol
  4. High blood pressure for prolonged periods
  5. Nutritional deficiencies
  6. Side effects of drug treatments such as the use of certain chemicals in chemotherapy

Types of Cardiomyopathy
Cardiomyopathy has multiple types; depending on what causes them and also certain specific symptoms. These are:

  1. Restrictive cardiomyopathy
  2. Dilated cardiomyopathy
  3. Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia
  4. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
  5. Unclassified cardiomyopathies

Treatment for cardiomyopathy
The treatment of these various forms of cardiomyopathy will vary depending on the type and also the stage and condition of the heart. Some of these treatments include:

  1. Medications
  2. Lifestyle changes
  3. Surgeries such as Septal myectomy, Septal ablation and Radiofrequency ablation
  4. Implantable devices such as Implantable cardioverter-defibrillator or ICD
  5. Ventricular assist devices
  6. Heart transplant in the worst case scenarios. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Homeopath.

Do this 1. Eat something like a banana (if you are not diabetic) or soaked almonds and a glass of water first thing in the morning (within 10 mins of waking up). 2. Take your breakfast every day. Don't skip it. 3. Have light meals every 2 hours (in addition to your breakfast, lunch n dinner) e.g. Nariyal paani, chaach, a handful of dry fruits, a handful of peanuts, seasonal fruit, a cup of curd/milk etc 4. Finish your dinner at least 2 hours before going to sleep. 5. Maintain active life style 6. Avoid fast foods n fried foods 7.Take a lot of green vegetables n fruit. 8. Drink lot of water 8. Everyday preferably sleep on same time For more details you can consult.

My grandfather is a 76 years old male. 10 days ago he was affected by an ischemic stroke at the right side of his brain .But now the doctors found an infraction at the right side and also found the infraction to be spreading towards the left. Doctors are suggesting for a surgery .Is that needed for his healthy recovery?

MS - General Surgery, MBBS, MCh - Neuro Surgery
Neurosurgeon, Hyderabad
If the doctors have suggested surgery it is mos likely that the stroke is causing brain swelling and the resultant increase in pressure is causing threat to life. Surgery is therefore life saving. Unfortunately it has no implication on physical recovery since that is dependent on the size of the stroke and part of the brain that is affected.

Dear lybrate user please try to bring some change in your lifestyle like waking up early in the morning and going for a walk, doing some exercises. You can also join some gym. I would suggest that you start maintaining a daily diary. Write your thoughts and associated feelings there. Try to reflect upon the reasons for these negative thoughts. Whenever these thoughts crop up in your mind try to distract yourself. Most important suggestion is that along with these medicines you please start consulting a psychologist and take up regular one on one counseling sessions. I hope you will benefited from the above mentioned suggestions and try to apply them in your life. Please feel free to give your feedback. Take care.
