Calcium Scoring Test

I had an EKG before the calcium scoring test. It had an ST depression, and was a mild discrepancy" my GP told me. I am a 64 year old female with no family history of heart disease before the age of 60. My Dad had issues later in life due to diabetes I think. My blood work is normal and my lipid profile is all normal. My weight is ideal for my height and I exercise and eat extremely well, take healthy supplements. All baffling to me and wonder what cardiologist will do!! I am scared…… My GP did have me take aspirin everyday and put me on a low dose of metoprolol until I see cardiologist. The meds make me feel awful.

The best things to do are take a statin, manage blood pressure and stress, exercise, eat heart healthy, and avoid diabetes. And my personal suggestion: Don;t obsess about your calcium score. Mine (1560) means I have the arteries of a 90 year old.
