Greetings... Brad here. Diagnosed with HOCM in 2007 - asymptomatic until 2012 had first of three (2012, 2014 and 2016) minor bouts of AFIB - mild. 2012 started on Metrolpolol 50mg daily; continued with thru now. Fast forward --- now at 59 years old --- I'm contemplating the use of Testosterone Pellets so as to counter effects of Low T with multiple symptoms of Hypogonadism (Low T). Have read a ton on subject -- but found this site and thought I would ask those that are under this care now (HOCM and use Testos). Any information is appreciated in advance. Thx... Brad

Just joined the group hoping to network and learn new thing here.... I live in las vegas,NV And am looking for a Naturopathic / or Holistic Endocrinologist, Cardiologist Doctor that can help me... Thank you
For two years, I have been dealing with HOCM. Have had no support group or others to talk with about their experiences. i am a 57 year old male and have always tried my best to live a healthy life. When the doctor diagnosed me with THIS, my world just kind of fell apart. It has been a lot to process. I have changed a lot of my lifestyle habits, such as avoiding alcohol, avoiding hot temps, and drinking a lot of water. I am also constantly aware of my heart rate - to the point of being OCD. HELP Anyone else out there relating to this? Now I am paranoid about a few other things that have just started happening. Let's talk.
44 yr old female - Diagnosed W/HOCM- Hypertrophic Obstructive Cardio Myopathy in 12/2010 for the first time.. VERY SHOCKED!! HAD NO PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE OR FAMILY HISTORY with this Disease/Condition. The Gradient (thickness) of Heart my was at 92%. It went up as high as 104% in just 2 yrs. Doctor Mention (3) Options to help or save my life. :-(.... Option (1) Having an "Alcohol Septal Ablation", but Doc quickly discovered I was at a higher risk than he understood & this procedure was no longer a safe option for me (Due to My high level Gradient & HBP condition). Option (2) Was a Myectomy Surgery! I quickly rejected the idea of surgery (until I learned further of what Gods Will was for me)... So I prayed Heavily for health, Help and for healing from my LORD... My Cardiologist was disappointed and "said" I'm gona change your Med's and hopefully you benefit some from them...Until you decide if surgery is right for you. Doctor decided to put me on new Med's & I was quickly Admitted in to the hospital for observation for the next 7 days during new Med's testing . By the 3rd day at the hospital The administered Med's had changed my Heart Condition tremendously!!! In just 3 days it had improved drastically! Gradient was now 30% less!!! From 104% To 74%!!!! Yes Im Blessed to be Alive!!! Thank You Jesus!! I'm currently on other Med's as well to help the heart... Yes! I must live on them for life! but for now I'm smiling again.. I know this is not a cure, but it has made a drastic difference in my quality of life ... Thank You Jesus!! Thank YOU DOC :-)
