Sep 18, 2018 · Coronary artery disease/Specifically Ectasia CAE in Heart & Blood Health

Thanks for your Reply…..yes seems standard with Cardiologists to make it manageable for the rest of our life….without knowing much about it…really …ya not happy with this prognosis…they really don’t know if it’s spreads or is it treatable….they say it’s rare CAE but how many people have it out there and don’t know….I certainly don’t know how I got it…but that being said there has to be other heart surgeons and cardiologists and research departments that have actuallydealt with this….I’m very proactive…and really believe it’s the major culprit cronic Inflammation ….upon which I just finished seeing a top Rheumatologist who has put me on inflammation drugs..Methotrexate and folic acid…to be followed by another injection of xxxx if blood work dictates…and then retesting to see if any change…It’s Amazing that more isn’t out there in the journals but will continue the journey….trying to eliminate Stress…😊just a note I’m also on a powder supplement called Cardioflex and Q10/100
Best of luck….continue the Healthy lifestyle…take it easy with the beer..haha 🙏Gary

His reference is directed at disease which could be RA…and possible inflammation….says he is familiar with it but yes have my doubts…might seek out a back up Cardiologist..thanks

Thanks for getting back to me….had chest pain shortly after getting back from Philippines…so doctor did usual EKG…etc…sent request to Cardiologist who did Mibi test followed by an angiogram…which pictures showed Pronounced Ectasia with 50% blockaged in 1 Artery….they basically put me on Crestor 20….aspirin 81…and plavix 75..and said it was manageable…the pictures were frightening to see and after seeing cardiologist he did not know much about it it seemed but we agreed to have CT of Aorta..which was ok ….have. Referral for A Rheumatologist but isn’t till later September which is ridiculous…need to know more like yesterday
so being being proactive and trying to find more information with a medical professional who has dealt with Ectasia…dealing w Naturalpath…and changing lifestyle of course using CardioFlex (high vit C lysine Q10 Magnesium ++) protein shake…exercise. But hard to control stress….rupture always a thought….told could have a lot to do with immune system and inflammatory disease ….still have chest pain 80% of time and manage w Tramacet 325 at night which helps…sorry a little long…but just putting it out there in hope….I’m a young 67 non smoker and had hopes of an older age….trying to keep positive…thanks Gary

Desperately wanting to hear from someone who has experienced this rare artery disease Ectasia…I unfortunately have it in 5 Arteries with only a50%blockage in one…it’s not in my Aorta so far..thank god,
Is there any way to diagnose how and identify this disease and anyway it can be cured…I am a 67 old male non smoker and reasonable fit or at least was I thought…totally caught off guard and non getting much help…other than it’s manageable with medication…..thanks Gary
