    Echocardiogram results

    Had a echocardiogram done, got asked during it do I suffer from high blood pressure as one of the walls was measuring 1.3 which is borderline thickening then from another angle it measured 1.2 which is normal with the range being (1.1 - 1.3) the lady doing the scan said that she would be going off the 1.2 reading as it was a more clear picture and would be reporting everything as a normal heart with no problems.

    Do you think I should ask for any further tests and question the cardiologist about what she said about the readings

    If you chronically exercise You will have some thickening of the heart wall. That is normal and is usually nothing to worry about.

    I wouldn't say chronically but in the past I have done example being a 2 hour intense training session in the gym then hour break and 2 hours boxing but I don't do it anymore.

    Is there any way to tell what has caused any thickening

    You find this quite often in athletes actually.

    Chronic meaning consistent exercises
