Welcome to HCM!
Thanks for posting your query. I am happy to address your questions. Have seen your reports there is nothing to worry, the left axis deviation is usually a normal variation in the ECG, in which the currents arising from the heart picked up by ECG have a leftward deviation. It is not an abnormal finding and requires no treatment unless accompanied by any structural defect of the heart. Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions, I will be happy to help. Thanks
