Question: I have been diagnosed with ventricular tachycardia. Do I need to stop exercising, and what other lifestyle limitations are now necessary?
Answer :It is certainly important that if you are diagnosed with ventricular tachycardia that you see your doctors urgently and kind of follow all the pathways of workup that are necessary.
But now medicine has a lot of treatment strategies for those patients that they actually can continue their normal life, and that they can continue and keep their good quality of life. Such as defibrillators, for example, that allow patients to keep on doing their daily activities -- go out, visit, travel -- and still are completely protected from the ventricular tachycardia. So after a first phase in which patients undergo all the necessary workup, normally they are able to continue their regular quality of life.
