folks I am 57 yrs old, never smoked , pretty good shape as I used to play pro soccer
about 4 yrs ago I had an Arterial stiffness test that was quite high, i think around 120 was my score
My GP sent me for a Calcium CT scan at the local hospital which is an excellent one in Toronto
My Calcium CT score was excellent , if I remember it was as low as a 20 yr olds

Wondering though how I can get the arterial stiffness but my arteries were basically free of calcium
The reason I am asking is that I also have high blood pressure at 160/95 and I am on a low 2.5mg dose of Ramipril which brings it to 110/70
