Re: Lahri's ECHO DILEMMA . . . Please help if can.
- Hi Marybeth
Cardiomyopathy can be secondary to hyperthyroidism. This is what I assume
the diagnosis the cardiologist is making? If the thyroid is treated, then
the CM resolves and gets better. Hyperthyroid is too much production from the
thyroid gland and needs treatment. It is diagnosed by a blood test. There
are several treatment options, tablets, radiation therapy and surgery to
remove excess gland.
