Hello and welcome to our site. Have you been to see a pediatric cardiologist with your daughter yet? The measurements seem like they are too high to me which would mean that the walls of her heart muscle are too thick. This is ONLY a possibility; someone sent you for the echo in the first place. Why did they send you for that test?

Hello again. Something isn't right here. Dilated cardiomyopathies don't just go away, none of the cardiomyopathies do. I would certainly be looking for a good second opinion preferably from a good children's hospital where there is a good cardiology department. Take care
