Tim1028 that is an amazing difference; like they were doing the test on two different people. Please let us know if you figure out why there was such a great discrepancy between the two tests.

I just did a bit of research on Minocycline and found a current paper by Muller et al. (June 11, 2019, Cell Reports 27, 3124-3138). It can be found at https://doi.org/10.1016/j.celrep.2019.05.038. It is very technical and long, but seems pertinent to our discussion. The authors conclude that "Inhibiting PARP enzyme activity blocks calcification in vitro and in vivo. They write that Minocycline is the best PARP inhibitor. It would be great if Bluesdoc, or anyone else with an appropriate background could take a look at this major, current study and comment. Looks to me that Minocycline may be helpful in halting the progress or even reversing atherosclerosis.
Bryang, I wish you well. We are in a similar position. Are you able to tolerate that much K2? I have been taking just one of same per day, thinking of increasing to one two times per day, but concerned about clotting. I take one chewable baby aspirin per day. Also, I am extremely curious to find out how your six month follow up calcium score test goes. I read the study a couple of months ago and my recollection is that there was a significantly lower death rate and more supple arteries after three years of one tablet per day.
Hi Limogreg. Welcome to the club that no one wants to join. You'll make it to Thursday. Your cardiologist may recommend a cardiac catheterization in order to get a better look at what's going on inside your arteries. If he seems to be not too curious about what's going on in there, then look for another cardiologist the very same day. You may need nothing, a stent, or bypass surgery. Choose a good place for the catheterization because, you may end up having surgery there. Good luck. With some good care, you may have many, many years left.
