Depends on how severe it is.
Milder forms can be controlled with medications, which is the majority of patients, and a normal lifestyle is quite possible. The most severe cases may be eligible for heart transplantation, talk to your doctor.

In brief: Depends
Dilated cardiomyopathy (dcm) prognosis depends on many things.
The degree of dysfunction affects the prognosis. The degree of symptoms affects the prognosis; additionally the cause affects the prognosis as well. If the cause can be reversed by revascularization, if it is a viral etiology or a type from which recovery is possible (valve replacement, cessation of alcohol) the prognosis may by better.
