Hi and thanks for the query,
A slight ST abnormality is for sure not a concern. This is a result certainly of uncontrolled high blood pressure, already leading to ventricular hypertrophy. It would be advisable for you to take your drugs properly and respect feeding and dietary habits. Exercise could be useful in reducing stress. Remember one can t live without problems, so do not put them into your mind deep.
Strive for a blood pressure of less than 140/90.
Thanks and hope this helps,
Luchuo, MD.
