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.

Take one cup cold milk at night. Do not take eno for acidity. Homeopathy offers a selection of remedies for the treatment of heartburn and painful acid reflux symptoms. Homeopathy works by giving a tiny dose of a remedy whose characteristics are similar to those of the person who needs that remedy. The remedy stimulates the individual's own vital force, or immune system, encouraging the body to heal itself. Homeopathic medicine relies not only on identifying the symptoms of the disease, but on a variety of personality traits, the person's mental state and other characteristic symptoms a patient exhibits which correlate to any particular remedy. When choosing a correct remedy for the treatment of heartburn, all aspects of the patient must be taken into account.

Side effects are addiction negative feelings surface making a person suicidal calmpose is a safer option at 20, avoid any anti anxiety or sleeping tablets. Read books, watch less violence on tv, do positive fruitful activities & avoid negative people. Take a glass of warm milk with a spoon of honey in it. Listening to soothing music helps. Good luck. Do write back in case any doubts remain to be answered.

Dear Lybrateuser, - It is natural that the heart beats become fast as we exercise, on cooling down or resting it comes back to normal after sometime which is different for different person - do warming for 5-10 min before the main exercise schedule & also do cooling down for 5-10 min after exercise - also include deep breathing & yoga in your schedule as it will help your body relax & bring your heart rate down - also get your blood hemoglobin & thyroid hormone checkup done if your resting heart rate is high (90-100 beats / min or more) - have a well balanced diet with more of fruits & vegetables, whole grains, protein foods & healthy fats, avoid more than 1-2 cups of tea, coffee per day.

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.

I'm a software engineer age 26. I was diagnosed type 2 diabetes at the age of 24, one and half year to be exact. I was running with high blood sugar levels. And recently I was advised that to go for fasting by my family doctor. So I skipped a noon lunch for more than 10 days. I felt great and light and even my blood sugar levels were down. But from past 15 days I was on travel due to business and I didn't follow diet. So back to square one. So is fasting advisable to me? He said to take very minimal food. As every food converts into glucose even food with low glycemic index. So he advised to take eggs and meat with fats so that it's not converted into glucose. So is that good diet? He shared a link with me. Which said same. Https://www.dietdoctor.com/fasting-reverses-diabetes.

I would not agree with such short term solutions. Diabetes is a lifelong condition and it requires dietary changes that you can follow lifelong rather than just to control the sugar level temporarily. A balanced diet needs to be followed even if you are diabetic so omitting carbohydrates completely is not an answer. I suggest you get your blood workup done: fbs, plbs, hba1c.

Dear lybrateuser, -Usually the ribs heal on their own within 6-8 weeks with adequate rest -to relieve pain apply ice to the area & take a over the counter analgesic 2-3 times a day -consult a doctor he may suggest you deep breathing exercises.

High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. Garlic,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines . Cap. Ecosprin gold-10 at night daily.

There are 4 types of intracranial hemorrhage, epidural hematoma, subdural hematoma, subarachnoid hemorrhage, intracerebral hemorrhage, any type of hemorrhage is harmful specially in this age. Your grand father age is 85 years. According to human life cycle blood vessel would be fragile & weak in this age. High blood pressure one of the cause of brain hemorrhage but brain hemorrhage also seen in normal bp in geriatric patient. However survival rates are decreased when the bleeding occurs in certain areas of the brain or if the initial bleed was very large, So consult with a neuro doctor for his present condition.
