High cholesterol normal TMT test
My cholesterol level was very high, it was 277 with LDL 191, VLDL 47, Triglycerides 236 and HDL 39. As a precautionary measure, I had done my stress test, and out of my heart rate of 188, I had scored 181, which is 96% of my total heart rate, post which the operater herself, stopped the treadmill. I had requested if I am liable for angiography, but the cardiologist denied it. My question to you is, is stress test enough to determine that I don't have block in my heart, or do I need to take angiography test?
