Hypertension, ECG showed normal sinus rhythm, non- specific T-wave abnormality. What does that indicate?

Sir, My husband who is 47 years of age has hypertension is taking Hyzaar (Losartan Potassium 100mg / Hydrochlorothiazide 12.5mg) and Concor ( bisoprolol hemifumarate - 5mg) for the last 6 months. 1.) His Blood Pressure seems to be normal, but his ECG report says Normal Sinus rhythm and Nonspecific T wave abnormality. What does this mean? 2.) He had Fasting Blood Sugar and Lipid Profile Test done. The report says Fasting Blood Sugar is 117 mg/dl and Total Cholosterol is 178 mg / dl, triglycerides is 318 mg/dl, HDL is 23 mg /dl and LDL is 105 mg /dl. What does this mean? Is everything fine? Will Wassens s Omega -3 Fish Oil capsules help to reduce triglycerides level? Need your advice. Thank You so much.

Since they are "non-specific" please don't bother at all. It is as good as NAD (nothing abnormal detected). Of course, do remain in medical supervision and follow all the directions given by the doctors 
 I'll elaborate about non-specific t-wave abnormalities.  The surface ECG can be non-specific meaning that ECG abnormalities don't always coincide with true clinical problems.  There are many causes for t-wave changes including certain medications and a normal ECG variant seen in young people. 
Normal Sinus Rhythm, is designated as the normal rhythm of the heart.
Your triglyceride are high and HDL very low and both of them are great risk factors.
For triglyceride
Do regular exercises 
And avoid alcohol,sweets and carbohydrates.
For HDL 
Exercises is the best medicine 
You may take omega 3 fatty acids but they don't have any role on triglycerides,rather it improves HDL a bit.

Your fasting sugar is high and signifies that you are a potentially diabetic.
This stage is called as IMPAIRED FASTING GLUCOSE.
Cut your calories,do exercises and reduce your weight.
