... and im really not happy with my internist.
The whole reason I pay to see him is so I do not end up having to join a cardiovascular disease forum.
Let me ask the group..
Why do doctors check our blood pressure, and why do they keep track of our blood cholesterol levels?
I think its so they can make an educated guess as to how clogged up and calcified your arteries are.
Well, in 2018, it turns out they have these tests where you dont have to guess about what you are afraid of, YOU CAN ACTUALLY MEASURE IT..... FOR $75 !!!
The dude never checked me.
Until, by accident, and another reason, I had to have a scan. And the reporting doc noticed my calcium build up.
Now I have little calcium rocks all in me.
Would have been nice to have been getting these scans for the last 10 years.
Me having this problem was totally avoidable. Its a shame.
