1 doctor agrees
In brief: Cardiomyopathy
There are medications that will help the pumping action of the heart and diuretics (water pills) that will get rid of excess fluid in the lungs and elsewhere, but the definitive treatment is heart transplant.

In brief: Yes
Yes. Treatment ptions vary with the underling cause of the cardiomyopathy.
Therefore consultation with a cardiologist who can tailor treatment plans is extremely important.
