Thanks for your query, albeit short and specific.
Echo was great - concerns over enlargement - reports seems to be contradiction - can Left ventricular enlargement be reversed?
I would like to have an additional information on some points:
- Why was the echo done?
- What are your symptoms?
- Are you taking any medicines?
- Did you suffer from heart attack/Myocardiac Infarct or hypertension?
- Any associated medical condition that you are suffering from like diabetes?
- When was the Echo done? Does it report as enlargement or hypertrophy.
Whether the enlargement will reverse or not depends upon many factors:
-The associated medical conditions like diabetes?
-Whether the muscles of left ventricle are atrophied/thinned or hypertrophied.
-The medication you are taking.
Thinned out muscles do not respond well but hypertrophied muscles causing enlargement can respond well to the medications.
Please give feedback so that we can discuss further.
