Sounds like you should be concerned and ask your cardiologist questions regarding your heart. It is not normal to have burning in your legs during a stress test and it is not normal for the lower portion of the heart to show up as abnormal in women. If the lower part of your heart is not working correctly, it most likely had been damaged. Your triglyercides need to come down. This can be done with cholesterol medication and a strict diet of very limited meat and lots of fresh vegetables. Brown rice is good, oatmeal, salmon with Omega 3 is healthy for the heart. Being that your blood sugar is high puts you at a higher risk for heart disease. Your HDL needs to be raised which can also be done with the cholesterol medication. Your LDL should be 100 or lower (some doctors like to see around 79 or a little lower). Your doctor may want you to take a 81mg low dose aspirin a day to prevent artery blockage. Blockage sticks to inflammed arteries therefore causing blockage. Aspirin brings down the inflammation. Talk to your cardiologist and make it clear that you want some straight answers regarding what is wrong with your heart, what medications you need to take now, and diet. You need correct answers from your doctor, so that you can improve your cholesterol with diet and medication. Heart medication is the best way to treat heart disease if you catch it early. Heart medication taking correctly will avoid the visits to the hospital. I hope you get some good answers from your cardiologist and start feeling better soon. Many people with heart disease can live a life, but need to watch their diet to stay healthy. Take care and try to avoid stress. You can ask your cardiologist also about taking a multiple B vitamin. A lot of people are not getting enough vitamin B12 or Niacin in their diet.
