Just done an EKG/ECG with the following result:

Vent rate: 69 bpm
PR Interval: 108 ms
QRS Duration: 126 ms
QT/QTc: 382/410 ms
PP/RR Interval: 864/864 ms
P/R/T axis: 65/44/26

Result: Abnormal
Normal sinus rhythm
With short PR interval
I.V. Conduction defect
T wave changes in anterior leads

My ECG/ekg result last April was also abnormal.
A friend's Dr told me that anemia could trigger the abnormality.
He advice to redo it since my anemia has been fixed to be safe.

Please advice on the above recent result & should I be concern?

Thank you so much.

You don't state your age, sex, occupation, family history, habits, personal history, blood pressure, etc. - so much information is missing.
It is unlikely that anemia is changing your electrocardiogram. We don't treat electrocardiograms - we treat patients. Your electrocardiogram must be interpreted in the light of your personal medical status. By all means go over the findings with your physician who knows your health status after taking a history and doing a physical examination.
