What is "thickening of the walls in your heart" mean?

Please see the webpage for more details on Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy.

fed up
Fatty build up that obstructs or blocks the flow of blood.


The walls of your heart thicken because your heart is having to strain in order to do its job. The most common reason is untreated high blood pressure over an extended period of time.

See a cardiologist.

this is do to high fat LDL levels LDL- Low density lipo-proteins, its also known as atherosclerosis

Ms. Dazzle
It means too much plaque or another word for it would be too much fat is building that may cause a stroke or heart attack. Just go to the doctors and get a test done. Otherwise, research it by going to any medical website but ever in doubt get it checked. Your doctor will have all the answers.

Only a heart specialist can reallt tell you, by having tests done. High blood pressure for one can cause the problem as well as severe asthma. My sister and her daughter both have enlarged heart or a thickening of the muscle wall because the heart has to work harder to get the blood to the lungs as well as air to them also.

I'm not sure. Does the condition have a name?

Try an online search in Google or another search engine. Here's a site that might help, or at least might get you started... http://heart.healthcentersonline.com/cholesterol/?WT.srch=1

Good Luck!

If your doctor actually said that the walls of your heart were thickening,he is talking about heart enlargement,maybe to the point that the heart,a muscle,is having troubles opening and closing(also called pumping) and pushing blood through it's four chambers to circulate oxygen-enriched blood throughout the body. This is commonly referred to as heart failure.If your doctor said there was thickening in the arteries,this means that the major arteries are clogging up with fatty placque which also impedes the circulation of the blood throughout the body;it can also lead to a heart attack or stroke.Go to the website for The American Heart Association and the site mywebmd.com for more clarification.
