Background - 48 y/o active male - just lost last 15 lbs to  180@ 5-9' / I am a rower - just started competing this year / I thought I was fit  although when I exercise there are times I feel as though I should have more aerobic capacity / used to run distance in teens & early 20's & life took over & health moved away not smoking for 8 years now - reduced alcohol consumption & heading to overall better health - I thought until I was offed a series of ECHO tests -with these findings & I am planning on following up w/ cardiologist - but what does all this  mean? AmI to be mildly concerned - sort of concerned or very concerned?? Thank you
