Brief Answer: ECG Machine Bias. Exercise regularly. Annual Check Detailed Answer: Hello, Welcome to Helathcaremagic. I have gone through your query and understand your concern. First of all keep in mind ECG machine dose not always interpret or trace correctly, it should be interpreted by expert after watching the ECG strip. Both cardiologist and physician you have consulted said the ECG is normal. Thus you so not have to worry about this Electrocardiogram interpretation by ECG machine. ECG readings can be biased by machinery,technician or patient. Further investigations like 2D echo and TMT also showed normal. Your HDL cholesterol is very low. Exercise regularly for 40 to 50 minutes per day for 5 days a week. Avoid oil rich and fat rich foods. Avoid deep fried foods. Please continue the medicines. Have regular Annual Cardiac Health Check up and adopt strict life style. Hope this helps. Please write back for further queries. Wishing you good health.
