I am a 60 year old african american female who was recently diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. I have suffered with hypertension since my early twentys. My doctors said this type of heart condition was due to my blood pressure being so high over a period of years. I was surprised to hear of the girl that was diagnosed at such a young age. I am now on several different hypertension medications to lower my pressure and heart rate. Is there any other treatment for this type of heart condition?
