Feb 6, 2019 · Coronary Calcium Score (Heart Scan) in Heart & Blood Health

Relatively good for most of my life. I rarely over indulge. Quit sugar drinks at 25. Never have liked desserts or candy. I was skinny most of my life until about 30. Got up to 201lbs at my heaviest, (I’m 5’10”. Been a health nut the last 3 years. Been in the gym 200 plus times each year for the last 3. Often times for up to 90 minutes at a time. That all being said it just doesn’t make sense. I know way unhealthier guys my age that are likely sitting on a score of zero.

Thank you for the reply. I only found out two days ago, so the last two have been the most stressful part of my life. Luckily, I do see a therapist so I will find a way to mentally process this diagnosis. Thank you for sharing your group as well. I've sent a request to join.

Feb 6, 2019 · Coronary Calcium Score (Heart Scan) in Heart & Blood Health

So I've been having palpitations quite frequently lately. Seems to occur more after a night of alcohol consumption and more frequently after may meals. My heart rate will increase to nearly 100 beats per minute for a couple hours before settling back down. There will be an extra beat or a skipped beat here and there. I had previously had an ablation in 2010 to correct AVNRT, but haven't visited a cardiologist since. Cardiologist ordered the Cardiac Calcium score. Well I haven't heard from the cardiologist yet, but I can review the results online. I'm 37 years old and the CAC score came back as 402. First thought I was hoping higher was better, but looking into it, that's an off the chart number for my age. I'm devastated.
