Yes: At age 29 those changes indicate significant stress on your heart. Need to be followed closely by competent cardiology team as some changes may be at least partially reversed with adequate medical, dietary, and supervised exercise. Now is the time to act as delaying will only make problems worse and less likely to improve. Take care of yourself.
