I am a carrier – but I was told confirmation of carrier only status can only be confirmed by MRI, which I had done to finalize that confirmation. I am 51 years old, however. My son was just diagnosed with HCM this past year and he is 29 years old. Very active in sports throughout high school, but that was because we had no idea this gene was in our family. Based on The age of your child (your statements make it sound like high school or younger?) I would not trust carrier status confirmation by echo and ECG only. It may just be too early in his lifetime to confirm carrier status at all.

Thank you for your reply, yes high school and only positive through genetic testing. MRI is yet to be done since this is new. If I may ask, how is your son doing with the condition now. What sports did he play in high school? Does he have limitations in life?
