Hi doctor,

I regularly do yearly ECG test. This year I could not do that due to certain situations. I did a routine ECG test and got a consultation from a local physician, and he told me that the result was normal. I wanted to get a second opinion. I have no history of any previous health issues. Could you please check and let me know if everything is fine. Please help.



Welcome to

I understand your concern. Your report is normal (attachment removed to protect the patient’s identity). There are baseline artifacts due to machine problems, but there are no significant abnormalities on ECG (electrocardiogram). However, it would be best to focus on a healthy lifestyle like a healthy diet and regular exercise. Try to achieve a normal BMI (basal metabolic index). You should also undergo a lipid profile, thyroid, and random blood sugar if you did not undergo it in the recent past. I hope this helps you and get back if you have any more doubts.

Dear doctor,

Thank you for the response. I did complete body tests last year. My lipid profile is higher, but other things are normal. Yes, I have started to do regular exercise & focusing on my diet. Since you said no significant abnormalities, does it mean there are some abnormalities? Could you please elaborate? I was having mild pain in my chest. I took the test, but I am sure it was due to my gastric problems, but I just wanted to check. Does that change anything? Are my markers in ECG normal?



Welcome back to

I understand your concern. It is normal, just artifacts due to machine problems. Also, there are no ischemic abnormalities that are seen in cardiac pain. I hope this helps.
