LV wall thickness

My LV wall thickness is increased. Segmental LV contractility is fair, thus overall LVEF is 80%
My question is it normal or is it problematic. I am faint 4-5 times in 15 days after that my ECG & Echo report shows these,is 80% is normal or not and what problems does it cost in future. What precautions should i take. And will it come in normal condition in future if i take proper precautions. What is normal condition % of LVEF

Hi, the ejection fraction value is good. The ejection fraction is a useful measure of left ventricular performance. The normal range is 63-77% for males and 55-75% for females. It reflects the pumping capacity of the heart. The LV thickness can increase due to hypertension. Do you have high blood pressure? Regards.
