Hello and hope you are doing well.

Understand your predicament. But the prognosis for cardiomyopathy is dependent on co morbid conditions like diabetes and hypertension and if the patient is responding to the medications or not. If the underlying cause is corrected/controlled, then the prognosis should improve. The most recent study of idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathies showed a much more favorable natural history with a 1 year mortality of 10-20% and a 5 year mortality of 25%. Then again there is the option of heart transplant.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
