HCM-ers: Introduce yourself or just say hi

Welcome to the Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) group on Mayo Clinic Connect – a place where you can connect with others, learn about living HCM, share experiences and exchange useful information.

I invite you to follow the group. Simply click the follow icon image-f6386d0357e2 on the group landing page

I’m Colleen, and I’m the moderator of this group, and Community Director of Connect. I look forwarding to welcoming you and introducing you to other members.

Why not start by introducing yourself here?

If you have been diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy could you explain any changes you had to make in your diet or lifestyle? Does anything you do or eat make hypertrophic cardiomyopathy worse/better?

Hi @lopezland, You've been diagnosed with HCM. Seeking all that you can about how to take care of yourself is important.
You will see that I moved your post to a discussion you have previously commented in. I did this so that you can connect with and get the opinion from other people who have your same condition.
@lopezland, have you tried any adjustments to your diet yet? Can you share what you have tried?

I find that I can't eat heavy meals. By heavy I don't necessarily mean high fat or high carb; it's the amount of food consumed at one time that worsens symptoms such as short breath, palpitations, light headedness, etc. Besides eating healthier, I now eat more frequent, smaller meals / snacks throughout the day.
