I am athletic. Should I be concerned about a false positive result on EKG?
Sir, I’m 62 yrs old and for the last 15-20 years, I have had a false positive reading on my EKG. The answer that I got from the cardiologist is that my heart muscle was strong because of my athletic background. And that is why I was getting that reading. Should I be concerned? I was hospitalized in 2013 with heart pain from stress. I am diabetic and I feel that my sugar/glucose when it is high is causing my heart to hurt. I thank you in advance or any insight you can give me.
