Hello and thanks for writing in at HCM
Treadmill Test (TMT) or stress test positive is a strong indication for Coronary Heart Disease. Associated factors are hypertension, Diabetes, Family History, obesity, Lack of exercise and raised Cholesterol and triglycerides. Precautions you can take are:
1. Do regular exercise
2. Reduce weight if over weight
3. Avoid fatty, oily, sugar and junk food
4. Stop Smoking and alcohol

My last and important advice to you is that consult you doctor do EKG and Echocardiography and Coronary Angiograhpy to rule out Coronary Heart Disease.
Best Wishes

Internal Medicine Specialist Dr. Rajeev Chavda's  Response
Thanks for using the HCM. I am happy to address your questions, a stress test offers doctors a place to start when assessing your coronary health, the method is not perfect. A positive result would show an abnormality in your heart rate, blood pressure and breathing while exercising. A positive result may not mean that you are sick. Your doctor may choose to repeat or suggest other tests if you have a positive, just to be sure it is accurate and needs to co-relate the findings with clinical examination. Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help. Thanks
