Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.

RVIDd is Right Ventricle Diameter, Systolic, 2D normal range is 1.9 to 3.8 cm

IVSd is Interventricular Septum Thickness, Diastolic, 2D and normal is
0.6 to 1.0 cm

LVIDd is LV Internal Dimension, Diastolic, 2D and normal is
3.9 to 5.9 cm

LVPWd is Left Ventricular Posterior Wall Thickness, Diastolic, 2D and normal is 0.6 to 1.0 cm

LVIDs LV Internal Dimension, Systolic, 2D and normal is 2.1 to 4.0 cm

The normal diameter of the ascending aorta (Ao asc) has been defined as <2.1 cm/m2 and of the descending aorta as <1.6 cm/m2.

his heart dimentions are slightly larger than normal
he has mild right ventricle hypertrophy

his aorta diameters are slightly larger than normal range as well.

this can be a sign of increased blood pressure for him

does he have high blood pressure?

last time was 140/90... I ask one dr he said that is not abnormal for 19 y old which was kind of surprising for me...

please tell me how dangerous this is.... honestly please

Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.
what is his ejection fraction?

is he able to play sports?

most likely it is not dangerous and only a slight variation to normal.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

he is going to gym regularly ...but he said he is experiencing dizziness about 3,4,5 times a day....which is light and last for about 30 sec ...

Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.
the dizziness could be from many causes.

could be from low blood sugar, dehydration, or fluid in his ear or sinus inflammation or sinus infection if he has sinus congestion or allergies.

has he had these issues checked for?
