Hello doctor,

I run about five kilometers every alternate day. I recently felt a chest heaviness and a pinching pain. So, I went in for a TMT test. I want to know the frequency at which such tests are to be done. I am attaching the results of my tests.

Do you have a question on Treadmill Test or Cholesterol?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through your health query and can understand that you are worried about your heart. I have gone through your reports (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

  • On review of your TMT (treadmill test), I see no issues with your heart. There are no changes or issues seen.
  • In a health situation like this, I would suggest getting a heart evaluation done once every year. Other evaluations like blood work and for cholesterol (lipids) and blood sugar can be done during a routine checkup with your physician.

Hope it helps. Please feel free to ask more questions if you need further assistance.

Regards.
