Five months ago I was diagnosed with Asymmetric Septal Hypertrophy: Septum is part of the muscle of the left ventricle (LV: the main pumping chamber of the heart). Hypertrophy means thickening of the muscle. Unlike concentric hypertrophy where the whole LV is thickened commonly due to high blood pressure, in Asymmetrical Septal Hypertrophy (ASH, which is genetic) only the septum is thickened which may obstruct the blood being pumped out of the heart. This may be dangerous especially during exercise, and one of the causes of sudden disease.
For that reason, I was forced to suspend any kind of exercise for six months. Next month, I will repeat all the exams to see if the Septum reduced the size or not (it was in 0.86 inches and the normal size should be 0.46). If it did not do it, probably I have to leave the training forever (the three doctors that I consulted said the same thing).
The question is: does anyone have this diagnosis and is still training?
Thanks in advance for your help.
