    I am a graduate student of Fudan University in China.My father lived in a small village in the north of  China.This summer he was sent to hospital because of heart disease. The systom and some checking results  are as   following:
(1) dysrythmia,cardiac insufficiency,atrial fibrillation,valvuar insufficiency,cardiac failure,no pains feeling
(2) low pressure of blood         90(high pressure)/60(low pressure)
(3)  The density of blood-fat is not high.
(4)  The right ventricle and both of atriums expanded to 1.6 times bigger than normal,but the size of the left  ventricle  remains normal
(5) the wall of the  left ventricle became thinner
(6) the cardiac  muscles of left ventricle contract well but do not move
     The doctors  in the hospital can not diagnose his disease whether it is  dilated cardiomyopathy or myocardial infarction.Now my father can not walk a long distance and feels oppressed sometimes.He is very thin and only fifty three years old.
    The doctor said that there is only a probability of 20% that he can live for  five years.
Would you please give me some suggestions about his strange disease?
   I will  feel grateful of your help!

    I`m sure it will be hard for a doctor to make a diagnosis from this without actual test results but I am going to see my cardiologist on the 1st of November and will print this out and show it to him just to see if he`ll have anything to say.

    Well if he`s in China I`m sure he feels oppressed a lot of the time tongue ....Sorry..Just kidding!....My spouse is from Vietnam and I`ve traveled there many times and even visitied a few hospitals there so I can relate very well

Hi and Welcome to HealingWell, sos! tongue
I am so very sorry for your Father.  I am 53 and have heart failure, along with shortness of breath, (SOB), swelling of extremities along with the abdomen.  Though, there are other conditions that can have these same symptoms.  So we'd just be guessing here and that's not allowed.  I hope you can understand.
sos, I also had to edit your email address as the forum rules prohibit this personal info in the forum.  You can make sure this is added to your private info on your bio page, by going to control panel and editing your profile.
I wish you, your Father, and the rest of your family good luck!!
Hugs, Teri tongue
