What do my stress test results indicate?
I would explain as follows:
Welcome on HCM!
Regarding your concernm I would explain that as your ECG portion of the test has resulted normal and the nuclear imaging portion has a summed stress score (SSS) of 2, then everything is OK.
A summed stress score of< 4 is considered normal.
So, nothing to worry about!
If your clinical symptomatology is non-specific, then with the above test results you don't need to undergo a coronary angiography.
Coming to this point, I recommend following a healthy life-style and diet; avoiding the potential coronary risk factors (smoking, treating possible glucose metabolism disorder or diabetes, treating possible hypertension, treating possible dyslipidemia, engaging in frequent daily physical activity).
Hope to have been helpful to you!
In case of any further uncerttainties, feel free to ask me again.
