    [Oprah show]

    I started watching the Oprah show today and the topic was heart disease in women and the foods you can eat to stay heart healthy. It prompted me to suggest they do a show on HCM, especially to increase the awareness of the disease what with fall football and other competitive sports coming up soon. I suggested, too, that they come to this site to read on the condition for background information. Let's hope her producers read the message and research enough to at least do a segment on her show to increase the awareness.

    I rarely watch daytime TV, but did happen to tune in to Oprah this afternoon. Watched a gal named Sharon, tell of her high BP, how tired she was & how she got so short of breath when climbing stairs! Could those also be symptoms of HCM? Did it ring a bell for anyone else?

    Dear Sandy,

    Actually, most HCM'ers have normal to low BP and most cardiac conditions will cause sob and fatigue so she could very well have CHF or CAD or what have you --but HCM is not entirely out of the question, either.
