Causes Thicker Heart Walls?
Good afternoon, please ask me if the heart condition in my family, including mine, is thicker than a normal heart, does this affect the reproductive system too? I was born male
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The condition of the thicker heart wall, is included in the category of cardiomyopathy or a collection of diseases related to the heart muscle. These disorders are mainly related to the structure and function of the heart muscle, and usually without high blood pressure, coronary heart disease or heart valve abnormalities.
The causes of cardiomyopathy include:
Genetic or hereditary disorders Thyroid disease Overweight or obesity Diabetes or high blood sugar levels Alcohol consumption Lack of vitamins and minerals Infections of the heart
When someone is suspected of having this condition, your doctor will perform a series of tests ranging from an EKG or heart record, blood tests, CT scans, MRI and chest x-rays. Regarding your question, this condition has no effect on the reproductive system, which is simply the system and all organs that allow humans to reproduce, but it can be inherited due to genetic influences. In other words, having this condition doesn't mean your reproductive system will be affected.
Our advice is to routinely control the heart doctor to avoid complications from this condition. Lose weight if you are overweight. Do regular exercise, avoid smoking, get enough sleep, avoid stress and consume nutrient-rich foods such as vegetables and fruit. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
