I have hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Now my husband and I are planning to have a child. I’m worried because I know that my illness is inherited. What are the chances that my kids will inherite hypertrophic cardiomyopathy? Please, can somebody give me this information? It’s very important to me. Thank you!

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a genetic disorder typically inherited. I know that men and women with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy stand a 50-50 chance of transmitting the HCM gene to each of their children. Screening should be performed every three years in children and adolescents and then every five years after adulthood is reached.
