Customer Question
My cardiologist has diagnosed...

My cardiologist has diagnosed a possible blockage(s), I'm scheduled to have an angiogram with possible stent in 2 week. I have elevated calcification and start taking q10. I have no symptoms, feel good. I'm 70 years old, blood pressure normal with medication. We have a home on an island and a winter place on the mainland, my wife and daughter are insisting we move to the mainland, better access to emergency services. We normally stay on the island until mod October. I think this is way to cautious. CArdiologist suggested we could delay my procedure for a year. Really want to stay on the island, you opinion would be appreciated

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

No allergic to anything, drugs include a Statin, Anlodipine 10mg,Candesartan plus 16/12.5 mg

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

I've pre diabetic for 10 years. Average 5.8 doc happy, exercise 5 hours a week, mostly lane swimming. No tobacco, drink too much red wine.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
