Hypertrophic Cardio Myopothy

Posted By Aletta on July 10, 1999 at 12:42:55
Sister just diagonsed with Hypertrophic Cardio Myopothy.  Family history:  Father with Wagner's/Stickler's disease (cleft pallet in conjunction with retina tearing away from eye, causing blindness to begin in the 30's).  Father also started having heart attacks in early 40's.
What is this disease?  Were told it is genetic.  Is it tied in with the Wagner's or Stickler's diseases?
CAN DIET AND EXERCISE COMBAT THIS DISEASE.
SHOULD A WOMAN IN HER VERY LATE 30's (me) AVOID PREGNANCY SINCE THIS IS IN THE FAMILY?  
Thankyou!!!
Aletta
