Can a Person with Dilated Cardiomyopathy Be Cured?

Q:

My husband is 42 years old. He has dilated cardiomyopathy. His doctor said medicine could control but not cure his condition. Please give me advice what I may do?

A:

There is no cure for cardiomyopathy, including dilated cardiomyopathy. Though it can’t be entirely cured, treatment can help control signs caused by it and prevent the disease from becoming worse.

Medication can ease blood flow, reduce the pounding heartbeats, and stop fluid from swelling in the patient’s feet, ankles and legs.

Besides standard treatments, appropriate exercise and healthy lifestyle are helpful in controlling the condition. You can talk to the patient’s doctor about what diet and lifestyle changes are beneficial in his case.
