Mr. Lybrate-user, usually a minimum of 30 minutes a day of physical activity is recommended to keep fit and prevent adding additional weight. So the amount of exercise being done by you (cycling) appears to be good enough. But still if you walk for another 20 minutes a day, that will add to keep fit as well as remain free from diabetes. Thanks for the question.

Smoking kills is a right kind of advertising. Smoking (nicotine) is a stimulant which stimulates your heart to pump faster and forcefuly. Nicotine stimulates brain also. All you have to do is to stop smoking at once.

Good to know that ecg report is normal, and you get relief with basic medicines for acidity. There's something wrong with your food and eating habits, take less oily and spices and more of seasonal vegetables and fruits plus eating according to constitution. Take more proteins like milk and curds. All of these items are available in your market. Eat regularly, milk and bananas or with curds is natural anti acidity food which is nourishing food also. Do take medicines if required. Eat regularly, do exercise to digest the food and drink lots of water preferably with honey at least once a day. Do get back with progress report.

The cholesterol levels are deranged. As first line, you need to attempt diet change and exercise, if even after 6-8 weeks of these precautions, he may require treatment. Daily 40 mins of brisk walking for exercise. Quit smoking and drinking (if he does). Ask for a detailed dietary consult from a dietician. Get his blood sugar and TSH tested. Follow up with a General physician or cardiologist after 6 weeks with lipid profile report.

How To Treat Cardiomyopathy?

DM - Cardiology, MD-Internal Medicine , MBBS

How To Treat Cardiomyopathy?

Cardiomyopathy includes diseases involving the heart muscle. These diseases have various causes, types, symptoms and modes of treatment.

The heart muscle gets enlarged, thick or rigid. In several cases, the heart muscle tissue is replaced with a scar tissue. As this condition worsens, the heart gets weaker and the ability to pump blood is disrupted, which can cause heart failure or irregular beating of the heart. The weakened state of the heart can lead to valvar diseases.

The different types of cardiomyopathy are:

  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy: This is a common form and affects people of all ages. Men and women are affected equally. This condition arises due to the enlargement and thickening of the heart muscle. The ventricles, the septum and the lower heart chamber usually thicken, which causes obstruction in pumping of blood by the heart. This disease also causes stiffness in the ventricles, and cellular changes in the tissue.
  • Dilated CardiomyopathyThis form of cardiomyopathy develops due to the enlargement and weakening of the ventricles. The issue arises from the left ventricle and develops over time. It may even affect the right ventricle. More effort is put in by the heart muscles for pumping blood and slowly the heart is unable to pump blood effectively. This condition may lead to heart failure, valve diseases or blood clots in the heart.
  • Restrictive CardiomyopathyThis disease occurs due to the stiffening of the ventricles, without thickening of the walls of the heart. The ventricles are not allowed to relax and do not receive a sufficient volume of blood supply. This condition causes heart failure and valvar problems over time.
  • Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Dysplasia: This rare form of cardiomyopathy occurs when fat or fibrous tissues replace the muscle tissue of the right ventricle. This causes arrhythmias and disruption in the electrical signals of the heart. It generally affects teens and may cause cardiac arrest in athletes.
  • Unclassified Cardiomyopathy: Some types of cardiomyopathy of this category include left ventricular non compaction where the ventricles develop trabeculations. Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is another disease where immense stress causes failure of the heart muscles.

Treatment: Many cases of cardiomyopathy come and go away on their own. Treatment for other cases depends on the severity and symptoms. The major treatment methods are:
Lifestyle changes meant for a healthier heart.

  • Medication.
  • Nonsurgical methods.
  • Surgery and implants

Modes of surgery for treatment of cardiomyopathy include:

Implant devices such as Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) device, Implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD), Left ventricular assist device and pacemakers are fitted into the heart for better performance.

Cardiomyopathy can be of many different types, each arising from different situations and conditions. The mode of treatment depends on the severity of the complication or on the basis of symptoms. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Cardiologist.
