LOW VOLTAGE EKG

I HAD AN EKG TODAY AND WAS TOLD I HAD LOW VOLTAGE. I WAS AT A WEIGHT LOSS CLINIC. I HAVE RESEARCHED AND FOUND THERE CAN BE MANY CAUSES (HYPOTHYROIDISM, OBESITY) AND SEVERAL OTHER REALLY SCARY ONES SUCH AS AMYLORDOSIS, SCLERADERMA. I'M TOTALLY FREAKED OUT. I'M 43 AND NEED TO LOOSE 45LBS. IS THIS A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF WEIGHT TO CAUSE LOW VOLTAGE? I HAVE HYPOTHYROIDISM AND TAKE MEDICATION - COULD THIS STILL BE A POSSIBLE CAUSE. WHAT IS THE LONG TERM AFFECT ON MY HEART AND WILL MY VOLTAGE EVER RETURN TO NORMAL IF LOOSE WEIGHT OR MEDICATION ADJUSTMENT? DO I NEED WORRY ABOUT SUDDEN DEATH? I HAVE AN APPOINTMENT WITH MY PRIMARY DR IN A WEEK. I'M AFRAID TO FALL ASLEEP....THANKS

Hello,

I just found your post from last year.  Today is 9.13.09.  I could not find any "answer" to your posted question.  Can you provide any update information about what happened to you?

I have doctors all ignoring my Low Voltage on my ECG also.  I have atrial fibrillation, also.  I am thinking there are multiple causes, including my kidney disease.

I have been researching causes all morning.  Hypothyroidism, fat deposits in the heart, Inflammation (from pneumonia or viruses), etc.

Please e-mail your response to the below e-address; thanks.  Let me know what types of treatment did or did not help you; also, what other specific tests really answered your questions?

low voltage ecg is just that, the equipment is receiving much fainter voltages than normal.
There can be many reasons for this and the reason has to be issued with the ecg report.
For example, it can be due to obesity, the heart is further from the sensors. It can be
over inflated lungs and it can be through heart disease. SO, with such diverse reasons, one would only be guessing and the reason has to be stated by the operator at the time
the ecg was taken.
