How to Treat People with Stage A Heart Failure Caused by Cardiomyopathy?

Q:

What’s the treatment for people with stage A heart failure caused by cardiomyopathy?

A:

Heart failure is a progressive disease that can get worse over time. It can be caused by a family history of cardiomyopathy. Stages help you understand how severe it has become. American Heart Association (AHA) and American College of Cardiology (ACC) divide the condition into four stages – stage A, stage B, stage C, and stage D. Treatments for heart failure in each are different.

The condition in people with stage A heart failure is not too serious. In order to prevent it from getting worse, they should exercise regularly. Cigarettes and alcohol will worsen the condition, so patients with this disease must quit them. If they have high blood pressure or high cholesterol, they have to treat it properly to control the symptoms. If the patient has a previous heat attack, the doctor may prescribe Beta blockers, ACE inhibitor or ARB.
