Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

My wife is suffering from peripartum cardiomyopathy for the past six months. She is taking beta blockers and diuretic medicine for the past four months. Her heart EF is 38 % with flat T in ECG reports. Her heart function is normal. How many days does it take to get cured?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Peripartum cardiomyopathy is a condition with an unknown cause. It follows after delivery for a few days to few weeks and manifests with the symptoms of heart failure. Beta blockers and diuretics are suitable. But the condition is not completely curable. The symptoms can reduce with the medications. Please send the ECG (electrocardiography) and echocardiography report to review it. Some cases can also show electrolyte imbalance like hypocalcemia or hypomagnesemia due to diuretics. It can also affect the ECG.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
