Is is possible to have a dilated cardiomyopathy and bradycardia? I take no medicines for the cardiomyopathy.
Yes, it's possible: Bradycardia can go along with cardiomyopathies. It can also be normal in some people, especially athletes. Bradycardia (low heart rate) needs emergency treatment if it causes symptoms: fainting, fatigue, dizziness, chest pain, shortness of breath. If you have been diagnosed with both these things, then you're seeing a cardiologist, probably, who'll know what treatment you need & what to watch for. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Although: drug-induced diabetes has been a concern for several years, not enough information is available to influence prescribing for the majority of patients.
