Subject: [ferrethealth] Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

Hi all.

I've been trying to research HCM and haven't been able to find much to help me out. There are a number of posts that suggest complimenting Enalapril/Enacard & Lasix with CoQ10, VitC &E, and fish oils or Omega 3. The problem is, I couldn't find anything referencing the doses, with the exception of the CoQ10. Can anyone out there shed some light?

Also, there was info on using Beta-Blockers and Calcium Channel Blockers, but the information was going back to 2002 and quoted Diltiazem and Atenolol. Is this still the recommendation or are there other alternatives that have been found to be more helpful?

Besides watching her sodium intake and adding supplements/B & C Blockers, does anyone with experience have any other suggestions to improve my kid's chance of seeing her 5th birthday?

Thanks in advance for anything you can share!
