STREE INDUCED ISCHEMIA

My wife 63yrs., 170 lbs, 5', diabetic, history of asthma and family history of cardiac problems, underwent Trade Mill TEst recently and could finish 91.4 % but even after 9 minutes her heart rate was not normal and diagnosed as 'Stress Induced ischemia'.

Otherwise she is normal.

What is the remedy - medicinal?

Can she live normal life for some time on medicines or she should undergo radiography immediately?

Hi Bal1950,

It is always a bit difficult to answer these questions without being able to see the studies myself. What I can tell you is that, in general, when a person has a stress test that has evidence of stress induced ischemia, we generally recommend that they undergo coronary angiography to evaluate if they have any significant coronary artery disease (CAD) that could be causing the ischemia. If she has CAD, the treatment will be somewhat determined based on the extent of the disease and what symptoms your wife is experiencing. I would recommend discussing these results with your doctor and determine how to proceed after this. I hope this helps.
