Opinion

  1. My Experience My Experience United States says:

    Your title is very misleading. I have HOCM and have been tested by Mayo, and further tested genetically, only to show it is highly UNLIKELY to be genetic. I showed NO MARKERS for genetic contributions to this HOCM cardiac condition. Other factors are acute STRESS, which can generate the HOCM onset over time. Mayo is currently learning and now reviewing more veterans to see if PTSD linked HOCM is more common from combat veterans.
