Jun 26, 2018 · Dilated cardiomyopathy. in Heart & Blood Health

My daughter sweats profusely too! Is that part of this disease??? Her Dr. doesn't seem to have an answer for it!

She was diagnosed in Late October of 2017. They did all the tests and could not figure out what caused it. They are assuming it was from the flu, she had been terribly sick the previous April. She just had an Echo in March and her EF was up to 35-40% she was previously at 27% She does not have any devices implanted. She just wore the heart monitor for two weeks but has not gotten the results yet. So we are waiting on that to see what may happen next. The Dr. has not ordered another Echo nor the MRI of the heart to see if there was damage. The Dr. said as long as she showed the improvement doing those tests would not change the course of treatment. She has started cardiac rehab. She also is over weight and has been told she needs to get the weight off. when she exerts herself she sweats terribly. Even just going up a flight of stairs. I will let you know what the result of the heart monitor are. She is on 3 drugs as of now, blood pressure meds, beta blocker and I don't know the 3rd. Dr. said she needs to get her stamina up.

I am interested in hearing from other people who have this condition. My 43 daughter has this, they say probably from the flu. she is showing improvement but would like to know what to expect and if it can be cured! They have not done the test to see if she has heart damage!
