If your Artery Calcium...

If your Artery Calcium level is 1200 is there any way to reduce it

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

I just recently found this out and had a stress test. My heart was good and blood flow was good. I've changed my diet and have a consultation with the cardiologist but it's not until Oct 26, i'm taking Lipitor, Blood pressure Med, and baby aspirin

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

No my family doesn't have any heart attacks but my mom has high calcium. My health isn't great i feel flush most of the time I need to lose 30 more lbs. I have dropped 7 since i switched my eating habits

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

My dad did have a minor stroke but he was a heavy heavy smoker

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
