Dear Lucho,

Your cardiologist should be able to put you in touch with a local doctor who is capable of running the tests (or having them done). If not, please ask the HCMA office for a referral.

Genetic Testing is being performed by the National Institues of Health. www.nhlbi.gov/labs/7east

I am a 40 year male who is being treated for HCM by the NIH. They are currently trending my children ( ages: 8 and 10) for the disease.

Good luck.

Rich,

As we spoke about last night...I would be very cautious about following that path.

Rule One for any HCM patient...YOUR quailty of life comes first...treat yourself...then worry about research.

I enjoyed our talk and hope your are feeling a better about everything today!!

Best Wishes,

Lisa
