What is enlarged heart and what should someone with enlarged heart be concerned about? My brother has enlarged heart since birth and has just been diagnosed with very high blood pressure...192/153. Is this something that could be associated with enlarged heart? He is 39 years old, over weight and a non smoker. He works a very strenuous job but not enough to keep the diet he maintains from accumulating around his middle. Please point me in the right direction so that I might be able to enlighten him about his present condition, considering he was "Too much a Man" to ask the doc. I know he is scared, he started with blood pressure meds today. Anything you have to offer would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
