Randy Travis

CRITICAL CONDITION

with Heart Issues

EXCLUSIVE

0708_randy_travis_tmzCountry superstar Randy Travis is in CRITICAL CONDITION after suffering from complications stemming from recently acquired viral cardiomyopathy ... this according to the singer's rep.

We're told the 54-year-old Grammy winner was admitted to a hospital in Texas yesterday. 

According to the Mayo Clinic, cardiomyopathy is a "disease that weakens and enlarges your heart muscle." Cardiomyopathy can lead to heart failure.

It's unclear what caused Travis' condition.

Travis was scheduled to perform in Deadwood, South Dakota on Wednesday.

The difference is, this is VIRAL cardiomyopathy. That little viral word makes a huge difference in diagnosis. My husband had it at 28. Spent the next 9 years fighting it, as his blood type & tissue factor wasn't condusive to a transplant match.

Pull your boys away from internet diagnosing, and ask a pro before you print. Seriously.

"Many intrinsic cardiomyopathies now have identifiable external causes including drug and alcohol toxicity, certain infections (including Hepatitis C), and various genetic and idiopathic (i.e., unknown) causes."
