    Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

    I found out 4 years ago that I have this genetic condition and dr. has put me on Beta blocker tablets. I would like to know will it damage more if I don't take tablet and manage my situation by not raising my heartbeat with any kind of cardio or hill walk.

    Please consult with your doctor on this. A cadiologist would be best to determine what is the most appropriate course of treatment/action.

    Only a qualified doctor, a cardiologist, can properly address that.
