Your Echo report is just showing the impact of high blood pressure on the heart, and even though it is not very serious at present, itis a sign that you should start getting treated for BP and get it under control or else it will keep harming other body organs as well. Consult a local cardiologist for proper evaluation of cause of BP and for starting treatment. Also start exercising daily, begin gradually, increase to 45 mins daily, avoid smoking, drinking and salt rich food and caffeine.
