2D Echo findings

Hi - I am a 32 year old male. I am hypertensive for the last 2-3 years and had a BP of 150/100. The doctor has now put me on Telmisartan 40 mg and Amlodipine 5 mg (it is one tablet per day) for 2 weeks. My BP has now reduced to 140/80. I was asked to take a 2D echo and a tread mill test yesterday and here are the findings :

1. 2-D Echo findings - Mild LVH. LVID-d : 3.92mm, LVID-s : 2.06 mm, LVPW-d : 1.22 mm, LVPW-s:1.64 mm, IVS-s : 1.11 mm, IVS-d : 1.27 mm, EF-70%.
Normal LV Systolic function (EF 70%). No regional wall motion abnormality. No valvular lesion, no LV clot. Concentric LVH. No TR, no PAH.

Stress test (Treadmill) results were normal : Adequate HR BP response. Normal Haemodynamic response, Normal Chronotopic response. No Angina, No ST changes. TMT is negative for IHD.

My questions are :

1. Are my echo measurements way too abnormal (considering my age is just 32) ? Is this condition reversible?

2. Is the prescribed medication okay ?

3. If I make lifestyle modifications , would i be able to completely stop this medication and get my BP back under control?

My cardiologist advised me not to worry too much about the 2-D echo measurements and to concentrate on getting my blood pressure below 120/80. Am a little worried that I am diagnosed with concentric LVH at such an young age.

Any thoughts and direction apart from my specific question.

Thanks,
Raghu

Your dimensions are in cm not mm.  The dimensions are estimates, and there is no outstanding negative dimensions.

Ejection fraction (EF70%) is the amount of blood pumped with each heartbeat (normal is 50 to 70%).

Sometimes lifestyle changes can have a positive effect on an individual's bp.  Others may require medication as well as life style changes.  

Your doctor is concerned about bp, and that is a problem and the bp should be controlled.
