Anyone else here have LVH or Left Ventricular Hypertrophy and/ or a stenotic aortic valve?
I went to see a cardio today and she said based on the EKG that I have a sign of possible "thickening" or "enlargement" of the heart wall.

I went to see them after having some symptoms.

I go in for a stress/echo this thursday... and am concerned. never did anything like this before.

anyways, i was born with a stenotic pulmonary artery (or valve) leading to the lungs. i assume it probably got worse and this may be a result.. ie., stress on the heart.

just nervous about thursday and wondering if anyone else hs this and or what their prognosis is.

sorry for posting this here.

LVH is quite common as the heart ages.

Try the supplement CoQ10 which increases the oxygenation to the heart.

Hawthorne berries are another supplement you might consider. Essential fatty acids will keep your insides supple. Vitamin E (not the dl-tocopherols; these are synthetic and the dl stands for "don't like") - - buy only alpha, beta or gamma tocopherol, which is natural Vit E.

Try not to think the worst. Words are powerful but they are just words. Some doctors throw them around without ever considering how powerful they are and how much they can scare people. Doctors practice medicine; they are not always accurate on their preliminary diagnoses.

Exercise, even walking 30 minutes a day, would be a great benefit if you are not already doing this.

Look for your answers and you will find them. I love the book "Prescription for Natural Healing" by Walch for references on healing and health - - you'll find a wealth of info there.

Laugh and make your heart merry - - this would be the absolute best therapy for any heart.

My prayers for a strong, healthy and merry heart!

Thankyou, Wonby. I'll look into that stuff.

Well, Im waaay too young. I'm 25.. and this is just crazy. the doc thinks perhaps being born with the stenotic valves caused the heart to just... get hypertrophic after a while. because of its forcing out to work properly for so many years. but, i was always told it wsnt even an issue, while growing up and no one ever really said anything. and i never had nay problems. till recently.
i is that which i is

hi

Follow the above advice or other moderate exercise at least three times a week.

Had a son who was born with a missing heart valve. Only lived five days.

God bless. grouphug

Also take minerals.
I have mitral valve prolapse. Taking minerals with magnesium got it to the point of being so normal that my new doctor would not believe that I had it.
I head a doctor on the radio say that he thinks that MVP is the result of magnesium deficiency probably starting in the early days of gestation.
Your condition may have a similar beginning.

Do all the research you can on the Web. Good luck and I know it's difficult to face these things but keep looking for more answers. We are kind of on our own and we all have to learn how to manage our own issues.

I have an entire artificial aeorta and several illiac stents and an amputation. I am also too young for this due to a genetic blood condition.

I have to go for stress tests (the radioactive one because I can't do treadmill) and expensive vascular tests on a regular basis. I have to take a high dose of blood thinners and am pretty much a patient for life. No one will give me a prognosis as it is a rare condition and not usual.

listen to your cardiologist and vascular surgeon. I hope you have a good one. If you don't like the one you are seeing find one you like and trust. It is difficult as heart/vascular drs. are pretty intense. (I have been through three). But the best ones can practically fix anything.

I excercise on a regular basis, weights, can't do cardio due to problems walking.

Good luck.

Don't worry about the stress test and echo the people that do those are so well trained they are generally nicer than regular medical people.

Ditto. Be aware that not all CoQ10 suppliments are the same.

Hello.

Thanks for your reply.

May i ask what happened to your aorta? my cousin had a ruptured one... not too long ago. :(

this doc, i just started seeing yesterday. i dont have much of an opinion yet for wew didnt have much time and though she did seem pretty quick with me, but i think she didnt want to jump to any conclusions just yet.
just i have a lot of questions, like what certain things mean.. or this or that, and well, id like to know.. if a doctor says "Oh you have LVH".. and then says it like its nothing and goes right into asking questions about other stuff.. i mean, just kinda odd, when you're nervous and scared about it all and, well, who knows.

seems to know her stuff tho. and its so damn hard getting an appointment nayhwre. im lucky i got the one i got.

or else id have to wait till january or february..
and i wanna get it taken care of asap.. because of issues with insurance.

Yeah if you are worried it is better to take care of the tests at least and find out exactly what the problem is and what they want ot do about it.

I have found that with vascular doctors since they see serious stuff everyday tend to act like what you are saying, it doesn't mean they aren't good...they aren't good at detailed extensive answer sessions since they do see serious life threatening stuff every day of the week usually on much older people.

Mine was very complicated and after several sets of stents in my legs that clogged up. It's a long story. Each case like this, young, unusual condition is an exception. Vascular and Cardiologists mostly see elderly people. Over the years I have gotten more questions about my condition answered by my internist and blood specialist. But there are many questions I simply can't get an answer for. But again my situation is similar but different than yours.

Good luck again.

Let us know how it goes.
