Stress test normal: If your stress test is normal at your young age then it is a pretty good sign that your heart is healthy at this point. The best things you can do to keep your heart healthy are to manage the risk factors for heart disease:keep BP normal, don't smoke, exercise regularly, keep cholesterol normal, manage sugars if diabetic, and eat a healthy diet. If anxiety is an issue try counseling or meditating.
