Suggest treatment for dilated cardiomyopathy

I am having mild dilated cardiomyopathy as found out during CT Angiography. One heart specialist advised me to take Carzec 3.125 tab twice daily while the
second heart specialist advised me to get Eco test done as he was not believing
the result of CT angiography.
Please advise as to what i should do now as I am confused.
Thanks,

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Here are a few options for you:

1. You must do an echocardiogram to confirm the diagnosis.
2. If confirmed, multiple options of treatment are available depending on your condition and the extent of disease, such options include:

-ACE inhibitors
-Beta blockers (carzec) which you are using
-Diuretcis
-Ionotropes

But you must first do an echocardiogram to confirm the diagnosis.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Muhammad Adnan Iqbal
