Mar 24, 2019 · Coronary Calcium Score (Heart Scan) in Heart & Blood Health

Well, It's been almost a month since my test revealed my white knuckle inspiring 6451.12. I have seen the Cardo and in the morning I am going in for a CIMT, a heart ultrasound and a nuclear stress test tomorrow. I am on 20mg Rosuvastation and a baby aspirin. I am down 10 lbs solid and totally off carbs. I am hoping to get released to exercise so I can start building collateral circulation. I have ubiquinol on the way. It would be here but Costco put the wrong bottle in the envelope. I am attacking the disease on all fronts I can think of. Wish me luck and say a prayer if you are so inclined as I gather more information about where I'm at.

Ok, I know it's not a contest, and I'm very new to the high calcium club. I haven't read all the posts, so I don't know for sure what the highest score is, but I was called today within 2 hours of the test with my score of 6451.12.
First question to ricochet around my skull is "How am I alive?"
So far I haven't found anyone at this level to reassure me.
It is reassuring that a high score is not a grenade with the pin pulled, and that people are managing it.

So right now I have been scheduled for a consult with a cardiologist next Friday, March 8.
My pcp says the'll do a stress test and go from there.
59 3/4 y.o. Male
6'3", 270 lbs.
Last July had a physical
5.9 A1C
187 total cholesterol
161 Trigly
38 HDL
117 LDL
Blood Pressure generally 120something over 80ish.
Just started going to the gym and am tolerating 20 mins cardio and 20 mins weights without pain or dizziness.
I get occasional dizziness when standing up suddenly, but no chest or side pain.

What can I expect in terms of testing and protocols in the weeks to come?
Apparently my risk is pretty high. Are they not being aggressive enough? I mean, a week?
