Customer Question
I just had a...

I just had a CT coronary calcium test. I had a 22 on LM, 389 on LAD, 97 on LCX and 153 on right ___. Overall it was scored as a 601. Does this mean that I have two arteries that are in bad shape and two that are essentially OK? I have no symptoms whatsoever. No SOBreath. No heart pain on exercising. I am 69 years old. I have now been recommended a nuclear stress test and I am being referred to a Cardiologist. The scoring software is Seimans coronary calcium software. Are these numbers reliable? Thank you for responding. ***** *****

Doctor's Assistant: Do you know if your family has a history of heart disease? In general, how would you describe your health lately?

My father did have heart surgery when he was 75 years old. He lived til 90. My health is excellent. I do have high blood pressure that is being controlled by BP meds. However, my BP measurements were always 135 over 84 until 3 months ago. Now it seems it is 142 over 88.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have mild sleep apnea and have tried the C-PAP machine but unsuccessfully. My wife reports that I sleep well, with very little snoring
