What’s the Survival Rate for People with Non-Ischemic Cardiomyopathy?

Q:

What are the survival rate and life expectancy of patients with non-ischemic cardiomyopathy?

A:

If you want to know the survival rate or life expectancy of a patient with non-ischemic cardiomyopathy, you need to know how early he is diagnosed with the disease.

A recent study drew the conclusion that about half of people with non-ischemic cardiomyopathy die from the disease within two years after the diagnosis. If a person is diagnosed to have early stage non-ischemic cardiomyopathy, then his life expectancy is much better because proper treatment begins earlier.

Researchers also say that there is about 12% chance of death for every person having the disease within a year after the diagnosis, because this is the most critical period of time in treatment for the condition.
