Brief Answer:
It maybe done

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service.

Yes you may get an ECG and Blood pressure reading done as a diagnostic evaluation for cardiovascular disease. However a regular testing of ECG is not needed. A healthier lifestyle will have better effect in the long run. You may take more of fiber rich foods like fruits and salad, drink cleaner water. Regular exercise and de-stress techniques like meditation can help.

Hope this helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.
