Does this mean heart failure
My EKG said I have left axis deviation they are going to do 2 more tesrs stress test and for me to wear a holiter. Is this heart failure? Can I change it by making a big life change in diet and exercise and stop smoking? Thankyou

Hello and welcome to the forum.

The presence of a left axis deviation is pretty common and does NOT by any means suggest the presence of heart failure.  Though patients with left axis deviation can have heart failure, the vast majority with a left axis do not.  Left axis is pretty common in people with high blood pressure, etc.  Lifestyle changes are always very important.

Wishing you the best.

Dr. Rich
