What does LVH in a child mean and what could be the consequences ?

My 6 year old was just diagnosed with LVH after having an EKG I am so worried about this What does this mean and worst case scenerio what could happen to him My son was having some behavior problems at school and we were looking to put him on ADHD stimulants . The doctor ordered an EKG to ensure his heart was healthy. She called today to say that his left ventricle is enlarged (LVH). She referred me to a cardiologist to see what is going on. He cannot see him for another month and I am freaking out. What could happen to him? Could he die from this?

Why not consult an ayurvedic physician. Dr.K.Gowthaman, a Chennai based Ayurvedic Research Doctor has done lots of research. I suggest, please consult him by email: His Mobile No. is: +91 9940079511.

LVH is basically means that one chamber od the heart is enlarged. now the point is to find out why is it enlarged. it can have lot of causes for the same. your son will need an echo done for the heart to study properly if there is some defect in the heart that is causing this problem. if he is otherwise well need not be worried about but its better to consult cardioogist as soon as you can.
