HOMOEOPATHIC REMEDIES FOR DILATED CARDIOMYOPATHY
Dilated cardiomyopathy is a disease of the heart muscle, usually starting in your heart's main pumping chamber (left ventricle). The ventricle stretches and thins (dilates) and can't pump blood as well as a healthy heart can. The term "cardiomyopathy" is a general term that refers to the abnormality of the heart muscle itself.
Dilated cardiomyopathy might not cause symptoms, but for some people it can be life-threatening. A common cause of heart failure — the heart's inability to supply the body with enough blood — dilated cardiomyopathy can also contribute to irregular heartbeats (arrhythmias), blood clots or sudden death.
The condition affects people of all ages, including infants and children, but is most common in men ages 20 to 60.
Causes--The cause of dilated cardiomyopathy often can't be determined (idiopathic). However, numerous factors can cause the left ventricle to dilate and weaken, including:Genetics,Congenital heart defects, Infections, including those caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites, Drug and alcohol abuse, Certain cancer medications, Exposure to toxins, such as lead, mercury and cobalt, Coronary artery disease or heart attack, High blood pressure (hypertension), Diabetes,Complications of late-stage pregnancy
Symptoms --If you have dilated cardiomyopathy, you're likely to have signs and symptoms of heart failure or arrhythmias caused by your condition. Signs and symptoms include:-Fatigue, Shortness of breath (dyspnea) when you're active or lying down, Reduced ability to exercise, Swelling (edema) in your legs, ankles and feet, Swelling of your abdomen (ascites)
