Apr 12, 2017 · #MayoClinicHeartChat about Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy & Genetics in Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM)

I have three grown children and have not been able to get them to have an echocardiogram to see if they might possibly have this disease.  Come from a large family with a history of heart disease and none of them were diagnosed with it.  Have a niece who has dilated cardiomyopathy.  Was hoping that my family would not have it since I had the negative gene test.  Is this always a genetic disease? Sandy

I had a genetics test done which checked 25 specific genes.  It was negative.  Does that mean my HOCM is not due to genetics?   Sandy
