Research for the cause of dialated cardiomyopathy.(DCM) is a condition which affects the heart muscle and can lead to the heart chambers (particularly the left ventricle which is the main pumping chamber in the heart) becoming enlarged and not pumping effectively. Around 25-35% of patients with a DCM will have an inherited form (familial) but other causes include viral infections, high blood pressure, excessive alcohol consumption, pregnancy and certain medicines (particularly those used for chemotherapy) This cause sits very close to my heart as my uncle was diagnosed this in 2011. In this case it was not family inherited and unfortunately DCM isnt widley spoken about to understanded the actual causes for it, as to why we dont know exactly why my uncle has it. I am doing a skydive to raise awareness
