Questions: What is the difference between hypertrophic cardiomyopathy vs simple physiological left ventricle hypertrophy? History: The ECG for my father (52, M) showed an abnormal r wave progression (early transition) and the printed ECG had the words "probable left ventricular hypertrophy" on it. My father isn't hypertensive, doesn't smoke or drink nor does he have weight issues. He exercises but not as excessively as a professional athlete (walks at a slow-medium pace for 1.5-2 hours every day). His resting heart rate is usually between 65-70. No exercise intolerance. The only symptom he has is a pain in his right shoulder that worsens when pressed (seems tender, no lymph node involvement). Given all of this, what is the difference between hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and plain LVH. As I understand, the former is a genetic condition but if someone presents with LVH, when does he/she have LVH and when does he have HCM because even HCM needs LVH (greater than 15 cm)? We've had no sudden cardiac deaths in our family that we remember (just strokes and one cardiac death as a complication of diabetes). In the same vein, how do we take this further? Do we need to schedule a 2D echo or something else (genetic tests?). Thanks!

Lvh is usually seen in elderly people when they have uncontrolled hypertension and hcm is seen at a very early age without any history of hypertension and I will suggest you to get his 2decho done and follow up with reports and genetic testing is not required.

Yes, you are right. stop taking spicy food and start antacids for few days and see the results. In case of no relief, further tests will be required

MD - General Medicine, MBBS

Pain in the chest especially on walking or excercise could suggest insufficient blood supply to your heart because of partial blockage. I would recommend you to consult a cardiologist or physician for the necessary tests.

My periods has stopped about 4 years ago. But recently my periods has started. So I made my U. S. G. The report says that - uterus is bulky and anteverted showing a rounded hypoechoic solid SOL (measuring 2.58 Cm X 2.33 cm) in fundus anteriorly and to the left. Endometrial echopattern is central and of normal thickness (5.1 mm). Uterus measures 9.09cmX4.48cm. Can I have to go through operation or medical treatment will clear the problem?

Dear lybrateuser, -since there is a mass in the uterus it is causing you problems -the mass has to reduce in size which can be done by some non -invasive techniques nowadays combined with medication -if it does not show improvement then may have to be removed by surgery -consult a gynecologist on the forum.

Dear Pregnancy causes changes in the hormones and the resulting changes in the internal belly. Cramps can be due to gas formation or acidity that is again common in early pregnancy. Encourage her to eat fresh natural foods, fruits and walk daily for about 30 to 45 mins slowly and comfortably. Make sure she stays away from any kind of food that causes discomfort, acidity, gas or is too heavy to digest. Regards.

Dear lipanthyl is for your high tg, zestril is for your bp. I suggest you to make changes in your lifestyle. Reduce the quantity of salt. Avoid processed foods. Increase the quantity of green leafy vegggies. I guess your lifestyle must be sedentary in kuwait. Have your food early. Before sunset if pssible. It will definitely help you. Once you come to mumbai. You can see me. Will try to help you.

Today so many young men and women in the age group of 18-22 are showing concerns about heart diseases. Every heart beats in panic situation, if it does not I would label you abnormal. Socially shy, afraid to speak and some kind of a hyperchondriac who is imagining too many illnesses. You do not have a disease, it is all in your mind, have a life, chill, relax, read good books, learn some skills and remain occupied with fruitful activities.

Dear Prakash, With advancing age, the metabolism becomes slack, slow and older people react badly to foods and climate etc. Since you know heavy, spicy dinner is affecting him badly, make sure he had light, early dinners. Water from mouth and nose is a pre acid reflux, and acts up when the night temperature changes. take care Regards

My father bp is always above 155/85. Earlier he was on cresar 40 in morning and amlovas 5 in evening. We increased the dose of cresar To 80 still even after 4 weeks the BP is either same or sometimes even more. He has hyponatremia so a diuretic I don't think should be added. Other tests are normal. Pls advise. Is Telma 80 a better choice than cresar.

Dear Shaban, Medicine is just one component of treatment. Lifestyle modification like exercise,wt management, low salt and low fat diet, stress management, regular sleep, etc are another important component which many people ignore. What your father needs is stringent lifestyle measures. If his BP is still high we can modify his medicines.

She is a heart patient. Please tell me healthy diet for her. She is of the age 70.
If you have one or more forms of heart disease now there are many things you can do, in addition to using medication that's likely been recommended for you, to improve your health. Either way, be sure to eat well (choosing food from a variety of groups, high in fiber and low in saturated fat andcholesterol) and get plenty of exercise. Exercise does not have to be strenuous—a regular habit of brisk walkingmost days of the week for 30 to 60 minutes, and ideally, once a day, is all you need to do to reduce your risk of heart problems.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Your earlier glucose levels showed that you were in a pre-diabetic stage. In this situation by adapting a modified lifestyle one can prevent progression to diabetes or postpone it. It is good to see that you have been able to reverse the trend. You will have to continue the same, so that you remain fit and free from any further problem. There is no way to predict what may happen in future. If you remain free from diabetes for a long time then you will be able to maintain a good healthy life. Thanks.
