A member asked:

Is alcoholic cardiomyopathy reversible?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

For a while it is: Early on, it's one of the more reversible causes of cardiomyopathy. After enough time has passed (which is variable), it becomes irreversible. Anyone who drinks large amounts of alcohol and has a depressed ejection fraction should stop immediately.
