I'm not a health professional but have read a lot of reports from my own stress tests, and it sounds like you have a strong heart.  An ejection fractions of 70% is something those of us with heart problems would embrace.    However, you were given a big warning. Your family history suggests heart problems will visit you, especially because you smoke and are considered obese.  I'ts not easy to quit, I know, but certainly it's possible.  Losing weight is tough, also.  I quit smoking remembering how my grandfather called them pimp sticks, sort of a sissy thing, and lost fifty pounds by losing a pound a week.  I'd sure think about changing your lifestyle, the family history suggests you are headed for trouble with your heart.  
I would suggest your tests are OK, but you were given a big wedgie.  Keep us informed

Thanks for your reply

You are right it was a wake up call.
Although my report sais I am a smoker I am not. I quit smoking 12 years ago. My 2 problems are weight and family history. Well I can't do much about the history but I have made up my mind to lose the weight, infact I have lost 16 pound in the last 4 weeks just by eating right and cutting out the alcahol. I do miss my rum after my fishing trips. But at least I'm here to fish.!!!!

Thaks again!
