Treatment for hereditary Autosomal recessive long-QT syndrome does not reduce QT interval length. However, it can significantly lower the risk of convulsions and life-threatening irregular heartbeats.
- The majority of patients with inherited autosomal recessive long-QT syndrome are recommended to use beta-blockers, which slow down the heart's rate during physical activity or stressful situations.
- It is recommended to avoid very severe activity and manage stress if your symptoms worsen when you exercise or are under stress.
- Yoga, meditation, and breathing techniques are all effective strategies to reduce stress.
- Additionally, your doctor could advise you to take potassium supplements or eat foods high in potassium like bananas.
- You are more likely to experience major Autosomal recessive long-QT syndrome problems if you have previously fainted or experienced risky cardiac rhythms as a result of the illness.
- In order to implant a pacemaker or implantable cardioverter-defibrillator in your chest, your doctor can advise surgery. When they notice an aberrant heart rhythm, these devices monitor the heartbeat and provide electrical currents to the heart.
- The nerves that cause the heart to beat faster in reaction to physical or mental stress can also be cut during surgery. After the procedure, you have a significantly lower chance of experiencing risky cardiac rhythms due to stress or activity.
