I am a 59-year-male. I had an echo, and all results are normal except LV hypertrophy was 1.22 a little out of range. My BP is 117/77 mmHg, and presently I am not on any medication. I do exercise every day. My cardiologist said to take an echo again in two years. Is this serious?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
This mild LVH (left ventricle hypertrophy) is not of concern. Sometimes the echo could miss read the wall thickness. It is fine to repeat it in 1-2 years for reassurance. You could have a cardiac MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), which is much better in assessing the heart's walls thickness and function.
Thank you doctor,
Do you think I should go on a Mediterranean diet?
Welcome back to icliniq.com.
Mediterranean diet showed benefits in lowering cholesterol, better BP (blood pressure) and blood sugar control.
