Exercise Restrictions Distressing for HCM Patients

A recent study by Stanford’s HCM Center found that HCM patients whose exercise options have been limited  by the disease may find it difficult to adapt to their newly restrictive lifestyle.  The researchers found that it was very important for patients to fully understood their restrictions and limitations.

Interacting with other HCM patients in the greater HCM community provided an effective way to obtain social support and information which supplemented that obtained from health care providers.
