A lot depends on which type of cardiomyopathy you have. Drugs and diet play into the care of someone with this disease. If it is severe a transplant may be needed to extend life. Cardiomegaly is the same thing as cardiomyopathy; it is a muscle disease of the heart walls. Sometimes the walls are too thin (systolic heart failure) usually referred to as Congestive Heart failure or CHF, or too thick (diastolic heart failure) which is called Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy or HCM. (There are also a Restictive Cardiomyopathy and an Alcoholic Cardiomopathy) Which type you have, depends on the type of treatment given.
