That’s great news. Did you have a catheterization to find that out?

Thanks for your input. Just trying to determine what supplements are worth wasting money, time, and liver metabolism on. I’ll probably stick with the tried and true………….Cabernet Sauvignon!

One other question……..all this hype about vitamin K2/MK7 dissolving calcified plaque……..any thoughts on vitamin K2/MK7 might destabilize the calcified plaque and make it more susceptible to a clot?

Hey Bluesdoc. I have read that your CAC score will naturally increase average of 20% per year. So perhaps those treatments were responsible for your zero increase?

It’s been a year for you, anything new? I had a CAC score in March of 725. Sent me for a nuclear stress test. Passed easily. No symptoms, play high level tennis, did the scan out of curiosity. Good cholesterol. Now on a statin, baby aspirin. Changed my diet to Mediterranean in March, now scanning the web for answers. How can I feel this good, work out with zero symptoms?

Now taking aged Garlic, Vit K2, fish oil, magnesium. My daughter, a nurse and nutrition nerd, says forget all the supplements, let your liver rest, and just be strict with the Mediterranean non inflammatory diet and relax. I am 65.

Hello everyone. Just turned 65. Very active. Play competitive singles tennis 3 times a week. Had two guys at our club in mid 50’s drop dead. A third had the calcium ct scan. 606 score, failed nuclear stress test. Cath showed major blockages. He had a triple bypass.

So I went. Score of 724! Then had nuclear stress with negative results. No symptoms, no chest pain. Stress test was easy.

Cholesterol levels very good past 4 years. Doc put me on 10mg Crestor, 50mg Toprol XL and baby aspirin. BP usually 134/82 average so started me on the ToprolXL.

Haven’t been able to get to the other specifics of the tests because of the coronavirus they are not able to see other patients until mid April.

I’m thrown for a loop as all of this has happened so fast when I thought I was in great shape.
