Please translate my results; EKG (Sinus Brady, HR 71- Low voltage in precordial leads. -Left atrial enlargement. - Nonspecific T- abnormality.) - 8/25/2017 EKG?

Please translate my results;  EKG (Sinus Brady, HR 71- Low voltage in precordial leads. -Left atrial enlargement. - Nonspecific T- abnormality.) - 8/25/2017 EKG?

Question? Consult!: The EKG findings must be considered in context of age, history, and symptoms. These little boxes are not good for answering specific patient case problems. Consider a cardiology consultation here on HealthTap. The kind of consult where you ask for help within the next 24 hours ("inbox") works particularly well because it enables emailing back and forth with the details. ...Read more

Fatigue studies (CFS?): Merit of mitochondrial tests e.g. ATP-ATP, ANT/AAC, Mg-ATP, mito. O2 util., Zn/Cu-SOD, Mn-SOD, GSHPx? Any viable treatments?

Fatigue studies (CFS?): Merit of mitochondrial tests e.g. ATP-ATP, ANT/AAC, Mg-ATP, mito. O2 util., Zn/Cu-SOD, Mn-SOD, GSHPx? Any viable treatments?

No proven Rx: CFS remains a puzzling problem and there is no specific test to pinpoint the cause. I have a feeling that your tests were ordered by someone not in traditional medicine . There are many ways people with CFS may obtain relief but supplements (if that doctor wants to sell you some ) are not likely to offer proven benefits. . ...Read more

24-Hour Ambulatory pH Test or 24 Hour esophageal impedance-pH test. Are these the same tests or two different tests?

24-Hour Ambulatory pH Test or 24 Hour esophageal impedance-pH test. Are these the same tests or two different tests?

Not the same.: The two tests are not the same, but they are carried out very similarly. The impedance portion of the study allows your doctor to determine how much non-acid reflux is occurring. It is an outpatient study involving a very thin tube to pass into your esophagus overnight. It is very useful in determining the best way to treat acid reflux. Good luck. ...Read more
