Thanks for your query.You have noticed a weight loss over a perood of few months and Your lab reports are suggestive of Hyperthyroidism.Your Dr, has reffered you to get ECG done .It is mandatory to rule out whether you have secondary thyrotoxicosis or not?( Effect on Cardiovascular System) This is confirmed by getting your ECG .So nothing to worry about this can be controlled with medicine .
