Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Good Day
It means that you have significant CAD or atherosclerosis of the coronary arteries supplying your heart. If prone to exertion you have a chance of heart attacks. You need to do radical lifestyle changes, and drug treatment as well. No junk food. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables including green leafy vegetables. You also need to take the drugs for accompanying lipid disorders, Diabetes, Hypertension which are risk factors for a heart attack. You may need to do an angiogram to confirm the blockage in your heart. Eat healthy. Exercise ONLY as per the Cardiologist's advice.
