Probably not: Depending on the cause of your dilated cardiomyopathy most dietary changes may only help you control the symptoms by helping you lose weight, control blood pressure, helping make it easier for your heart to work. Medications and low level exercise will also help along with other healthy lifestyle modifications. Need to work long term with heart failure specialist to get the best outcome.

SeeDilated cardiomyopathy has many causes, including atherosclerotic coronary vascular disease, hypetension, aortic stenosis, viral myocardopathy, etc. Go see a caardiologist.
