66 year old male. 3 years ago I was told I had mild non- ischemic cardiomypathy with a ef of 47%. My last echo showed it went from 45% to 40% in one year. In brief, my heart and arteries are normal in size. I have changed doctors and hospitals, since my first one retired. My new doctor didn't seem that concerned with the drop from the echo last month. Also had a heart cath completed due to mild chest pain, all OK. The echo read, visual ef of 52%, actual reading 40% while my heart cath read 45%. I asked about the 50% survival rate for 5 years of having cardiomypathy, he said I wasn't even close to being there? I take 12.5mg of coreg 2X a day along with 5mg of Lisinopril 2x a day along with 300mg of COQ10. I'm 6-3 tall and weight 190#. Lost 30# over the last year by choice and started eating better with no salt diet. I run on the treadmill 5 days a week averaging 5 – 15 miles. I feel good, little depression because of my condition and I do find myself catching my breath a few times a day On my health record Doc has all catagorys of cardiomypathy listed. Just looking for more and all the information on my condition I can get.
