Caleb’s death shows how important it is to find out about your family history and get tested for HCM. If you are worried, you should talk to your doctor.
About Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM)
Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a disease of the heart muscle in which the heart muscle gets thicker than usual. It can be harder for the heart to pump blood when the heart muscle gets thicker.
HCM may not cause any symptoms, or it may cause shortness of breath, chest pain, or dizziness. It can also cause heart failure and death from a heart attack.
HCM can’t be cured, but there are ways to help control its symptoms. Some of these treatments are medicines, changes to the way you live, and surgery.
