Non-Ischemic Cardiomyopathic

On Jan. 22, 2020, I found out about my what is going on with my heart. What a day.

Non-Ischemic Cardiomyopathy

This PDF, this is talks about

  • Non-Ischemic cardiomyopathy is a generic term which includes all causes of decreased heart function other than those caused by heart attacks or blockages in the arteries of the heart.
  • The most common causes of non-ischemic cardiomyopathy are viral infection (viral myocarditis), drug reactions, inflammation or autoimmune reactions (lupus myocarditis, etc) or infiltrative processes (sarcoid, amyloid, etc).
  •  Normal heart function, or ejection fraction (EF), is 55-65%. This means that with each beat, the heart pumps 55-65% of the blood inside the heart to the rest of the body. Cardiomyopathy implies some decrease in EF to less than 50% (which is considered borderline or low normal.)


Here are the symptoms

  • Shortness of breath
  • Edema or swelling
  • Fatigue, especially with exertion
  • Unexplained weight gain
  • Shortness of breath when lying down

Some of the other symptoms that PDF didn’t talk about

  • Dizziness
    • When you stand up to quickly

What can I do

Well, I will have to take pills and change my life. Have I done that? Nope. I am working on it. It does take some time.

Here are things I can do

  • Eat better
  • Exercise
  • I want to lose weight
    • Heart doctor wants me to say where I am at due to my liver and kidney functions and wanting to damage them.
  • Reduces stress

These are always reachable, I just have to set my mind to it. It does take some time.
