In brief: All kinds

People from all kinds of different backgrounds end up with dilated cardiomyopathy (dcm) from severe coronary atherosclerotic heart disease and other such identifiable causes.
This being written, if no cause is identified, we call it idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (idcm).

In brief: Depends

It is not that common but can be caused by various reasons including childbirth, infection or drugs to name the most common.
In most cases patients recover or can be treated by medications. Make sure you find a good doctor who specializes in this.
