It seems important to find out if the high CAC Score is causing arterial blockages.

I have a CAC of 979 from almost 2 years ago, I'm now 64 feel good and have no symptoms. There is probably more chance of liver stress/damage from the statins than from the suppliments you mentioned. You can't go wrong with anti inflammatory diet, exercise, relaxation and good sleep.
Reasoning: Having no symptoms and with little 'evidence' that a stent will prevent an event. Left Main 575, LAD 110, Left Circumflex 80, Right 301. The severe blockage is located at the MID LAD. The location with the highest amount of calcium (Left Main), has only mild narrowing. I have decided to really 'appreciate' that I'm feeling good. 63 – 150lbs – No Meds – Good Energy – No Pain Anywhere. I don't feel much different than I did in my 40's.
I guess it proves that stress tests aren't 100% accurate. I have no symptoms (shortness of breath, angina), blood pressure is good. I did not get a stent, it seems one is more likely to die from a small unstable plaque, than a severe stable plaque. I am going to monitor plaque progression through CT Calcium Scores. I am making changes through diet, supplementation and exercise. I discovered that I have a Ramus Intermedius (an extra artery that comes off of the left main artery). Not sure if this offers any kind of 'advantage'.
