When will my LVEF become normal?

I am 37 , working professional, active till Nov 2009 (playing 4 sets of badminton at a stretch), swimmer but suddenly in Jan 2010 went into heart failure LVEF 25% - DCM. No blockages, ischemia etc. My other organs are working perfectly. After 1 month of Digoxin and Diuretics and Cardivas my LVEF moved up my 1%. Now having Cardace and Carnitor and given Cordorone X post Holter and Lanoxin stopped. When can I expect my LVEF to be 35% , 45% and then normal or 50% at least again?

I suggest you to take your medications and visit the cardiologist regularly because this is a chronic disease. The LVEF can recuperate in some specific cases, like when the cause is alcohol or in some cases an infection.

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