Hello doctor,

I was wondering if I could get a detailed review regarding the attached echocardiogram report. I wish to know whether there is any issue which requires immediate medical attention. Moreover, I would also like to know about the non-pharmacological management of the abnormality, like exercises and any change in diet. I am already taking Losartan 50 mg, Bisoprolol 2.5 mg, and Atorvastatin 10 mg.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through your echocardiography report (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

  • Your EF (ejection fraction) is 76 %, which is good. But, you have a heart valve problem. You follow-up with your cardiologist, and repeat echocardiogram as suggested by him.
  • Try doing the following.
  1. Use only a teaspoon of salt in your diet for the day.
  2. Consume low-fat milk, avoid junk food, fatty, fried, and spicy food.
  3. Take small quantity food instead of a heavy meal.
  4. Continue your treatment.
  5. Avoid strenuous exercise. Simple walking can be done.
  6. Your BMI (basal mass index) is 25, so control your weight.
