Doctor: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 11 months ago

Dilated cardiomyopathy is reversible only if its caused by ;

Due to blood pressure

Alcohol

Pregnancy

Drugs/ toxins

So if above factors are controlled it leads to reversal ,partial or complete in such cases.

If hereditary ,its unlikely to be reversible.
