VIRAL CARDIOMYOPATHY diagnosed Dec, 2014

Berichtdoor mdenzler » Di Mei 12, 2015 2:56 am

Hello, I was diagnosed with viral cardiomyopathy last Dec, 2014. I had trouble breathing at night when I was sleeping and also had a sinus infection for which my doctor put me on antibiotics. When I didn't improve, my doctor sent me to the hospital for a chest x-ray which showed an enlarged heart and then I had an echocardiogram which showed an ejection fraction of 25. My latest echocardiogram a month ago also showed an EF of 25, so that has not improved greatly in three months. I am on Carvedilol (Coreg), Lisinopril, Digoxin, and two diuretics. I have not had a lot of fatigue and can do most things without becoming tired. I walk every day and my breathing is good, although I have bad allergies. I was tested for viruses through a blood test and came up positive for Epstein Barr and Coxsackie. I have just finished a 10 session Ozone/UV treatment to get rid of the viruses. I am also considering starting a chelation process. I have also been taking supplements and have recently found this Forum and am very interested in starting the protocol.

- Diagnosed with Viral Cardiomyopathy
- Feel good except for allergies
- Ejection Fraction - 25
- Cardiologist thinks the cause is a virus, but is not 100% sure
- Blood Pressure is good at 95/65 (controlled by medication)
- Salt restriction
- Diuretics are Fuerosemide and Spironolactone
- Using Beta Blocker Carvedilol
- Not really tired except from allergies
- Very little sugar
- Can't skip a meal, low blood sugar

Thanks,
Maria

No, not really, I've lost 20 lbs over the past four months, really changing my diet to protein and vegetables, some carbs and cutting out sugar altogether. I'm 5' 9" tall and weigh 170 lb.

Maria

Hell Maria

Corrij's husband is in the hospital at the moment, so I take over

Questions

Is the viral infection cured now

Do you know your blood pro-BNP value, if not try to get it checked

Do you know your blood vitamin D level. If not have it checked

Try to find a good brand for Q10 100mg oil filled capsules and Acetyl L Carnitine 500 mg tablets

Post a link to the product on the forum

Choose big vendors.

Tell me more about your allergic reactions.
Met vriendelijke groeten,

Willy Witsel

Hi Willy,
So sorry to hear about Corrij's husband, hope he recovers very quickly!

I don't know if the viral infection is cured or not. My doctor said he would not test them as they would still show up in a blood test. Are there other tests available that you know of?

Blood pro-BNP (I don't know what it is, I will find out tomorrow and send. It was taken 4.5 months ago, so possibly I should have it taken again now?)

Blood Vitamin D is 57, taken a month ago. I have been taking 5000IU/day for three months, it was previously in the 30's.

I am currently taking Researched Nutritionals CoQ10 - 400mg (1 per day) https://www.researchednutritionals.com/ ... ode=CRN144

I am also taking Jarrow Acetyl L Carnitine - 500mg (3 first thing in the morning) http://www.jarrow.com/product/524/Acetyl-L-Carnitine

The NOW or SOLGAR brands are easily accessible here in the US, I can change to one of these brands if you think they are better.

I have had allergies my entire life, since I was a child. I live in the high desert of Nevada and am allergic to pollens and dust. I also have a small dog, Tucker, who sheds terribly (bless him:)) and I'm certain that some of my allergies come from that as well as I have them nearly year-round. This is another drought year for us and I have heard that allergies are particularly bad this year. I take Quercetin and Stinging Nettle and they help somewhat. My symptoms are congestion (all the time) and sneezing. Right now I also have burning in my sinuses.

Thanks so much for pinch-hitting,
Maria

Q10 and Carnitine are fine

You have to take ths Carnitine 30 minutes before a meal, so on an empty stomach

What kind of vitamin d are you using D2?

Hi, didn't see your previous post about the Carnitine and Vitamin D.

I need to take the Carnitine earlier, I think. Sometimes I take it only 10 minutes before I eat breakfast.

The type of Vitamin D I take is Thorne D-5,000 (Vitamin D as Vitamin D3) https://shop.thorne.com/catalogsearch/r ... =D-5%2C000
