Hard to say. What you need is a clinical cardiac evaluation and additional tests if your cardiac doc thinks you do.

All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, your results are less than healthy and it would be prudent to consult a doctor/ preferably a cardiologist. Wish you good health!
