Brief Answer: Follows. Detailed Answer: Dear Sir, Thank you for posting your query on HCM. Well looking into your reports I will like to tell you that the reports are not alarming but require measures to correct them . Your reports are suggestive that you are having a possibility of Metabolic syndrome , although you have not mentioned your weight but if you are obese you need to lose weight immediately in order to correct your lipid profile and changes in USG suggestive of fatty liver . Changes in diet , regular exercise and avoiding fatty food is highly advisable . Your Stress test is positive means there are high chances of you having coronary artery disease . I will suggest you to get a coronary angiography done to see if there is any blockage that will be the ideal thing but all these need to weighed according to the clinical history . Take care.
