Doctor: Dr. Bob, Medical Doctor replied 11 months ago

If you are carrying a lot of excess fluid, this would indicate that your cardiomyopathy is out of balance. Your medications will likely need to be adjusted and you might need to add a diuretic. This is typically a very important part of reducing stress on the heart and preserving function. Lasix is often used, or aldactone. Ask your GP or cardiologist about adding such a medication, and/or adjusting the ones that you are on now, to get some fluid off and improve your cardiac status.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
