This is an inherited disease which goes unnoticed till symptomatic. So, the main aim of treatment should be to prevent the development of any kind of complications.

  • Firstly, consult a good cardiologist, our page may help you with that - Cardiologist in India. He/she might advise you diagnostic tests like:
  1. Echocardiogram,
  2. ECG,
  3. Stress test,
  4. Holter monitor,
  5. Cardiac MRI
  6. and Cardiac catheterization.

These tests assist to understand what the condition of your heart is and how to guide you further.
 

  • If you are asymptomatic then lifestyle changes will be the primary line of treatment followed by preventive medical treatment. Let your doctor take the lead and decide what is best for you. Medication available for Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy treatment are:
  1. medication to regulate heart rate and control blood pressure
  2. blood thinners to take care of blood clots.
     
  • Whereas surgical options for Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy treatment includes:
  1. Septal myectomy,
  2. Septal ablation,
  3. Surgically implanted devices like Pacemaker,
  4. Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) device,
  5. Left ventricular assist device (LVAD )
  6. Implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD)
  7. Further, more options like heart transplant and alcohol septal ablation are also available.
     

We would suggest you consult a good cardiologist and follow his/her advice for a better and improved life. Wish you a speedy recovery. Hope our answer helps you.

Managing HCM at 38 isn’t easy, but it can be done. HCM thickens the muscles of the heart, which may affect the flow of blood. You might start experiencing chest pains, shortness of breath or even fainting spells. Taking drugs like beta blockers helps to calm down your heart as well as control these signs from occurring again. In addition, staying within certain limits when being active and not engaging in strenuous activities could work in your favor too. Always keep in mind that following what the doctor says is important!
