Calcium Scoring Test

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.

I'm curious @tim1028. Why do you so directly recommend that @lainie64 "take a statin?" Her calcium score is minimal — 108 — nowhere near the 400 or more that major medical associations say raises threats to the heart. Your other recommendations are good ones, based on what we almost always get from doctors and patients dealing with calcium infestation of artery deposits.
