I had a CT calcium scan. The results were:
TOTAL CORONARY CALCIUM SCORE = 365,
with the worst being the Left Anterior Descending Coronary Artery = 231.
I am 64 yo with no history of heart problems (however, a long family history). I eat a heart healthy diet and exercise (walk). I am 6 feet tall and weigh 180 pounds.
Total cholesterol 177, LDL 119, VLDL 21, HDL 38, TRI 107.
My questions are:
1.) What should I do now that I know my Calcium score is elevated? Is this something I should just watch, or should I take a more aggresive approach?
2.) If I should be more aggressive, does any know of a doctor (cariologist?) in the Denver Colorado area who they would recommend? Someone who could help me to decide what to do now that I know my Calcium score is elevated.
