Hello and thanks for writing in at HCM
I am a jr. to Cardiologist and wants to help you out. Your EKG has not much to say. If you are hypertensive than it is normal EKG. If not than you have to consult your doctor and get treatment for Hypertension. LVH (Left Ventricular Hypertrophy) is a enlargement of left ventricular it is due to Hypertension or old age. Nothing have to be worry about it but take your medication regularly.
You can also scan your EKG and mail it in Health Care Magic for detail report of it.
