Almonster any chance you could go over say your average diet (not diet plan but how you ate normally) over the last year or two? Were you a drinker? What compounds did you run over the years, just stuff that might give some of us insight into our own health. Im really curious if this was genetic amplified by lifestyle or if this is just another occurrence due to processed foods and other abuses put on by us as lifters. Hope that cardiologist appointment goes in your favor! Stay strong and keep positive!

Vitamin K2
Vitamin D3
Magnesium

These combined take calcium out of the arteries, kidneys, eyes, etc... Most people still don't understand K2. It actually decalcifies arteries @ doses over 300mg/day. It must be taken with plenty of D3 and magnesium as they all work together to take calcium out of the blood and into the bones and teeth. Amazing for osteoporosis as well. Cholesterol isn't the problem. Your body produces 700 to 1500mg a day. A few hundred more is nothing, especially when it is going to the correct place (bones & teeth). Calcification is the real problem. It not only creates a hard plaque over the cholesterol (repairing the small injuries to arteries) it can bust off and cause a blood clot. I still take a half an aspirin with mine.

Check out the Rotterdam Study.

Last week got the calcium scan. Cost me $50. Have no idea why it was so cheap, i did need a dr scrip. Took 5 minutes to perform.

My coronary artery calcium score was 21.

Theres calcium in the left anterior descending artery only. (Widowmaker artery)
Report states:
The observed calcium score 21 is at the 60 percentile rank. This means that 40 percent of people at this age and gender has less calcium than was detected in the study.

Mild coronary artery calcification and Agatston score is 21.

Need to change my diet. Cutting out alcohol. Gonna see if i can get my arteries scoped. Gonna start those supplements in the post above.
Thanks for this thread. I learned alot.
Hope your doing well!

I unfortunately ended up having another episode two weeks later. Heart seized up again. One more stent and another 4 days in the hospital. I'm sorry i haven't responded to the gear or diet related questions from you BROTHERS. I got side tracked with the TEN MAN thing. Lmao. But I'm home and still alive.

Hey guys, I had a heart catherization done a little over a year ago and the Dr told me there was no blockage. Do you guys think a calcium test could reveal more? Best of luck to you Almonster. Take it easy with the gear for now and fixate in taking care of the most important muscle you have.

I had a heart attack in October of 2016... Was on test anavar and Tren at the time... My cardiologist told me it's okay to just stay on a low dose of test... call me it. Please stay away from Tren though!
I see people on here talking about that calcium test so next time I see my heart doctor I'm going to ask him about it as well as those supplements
When I was 35 back in 2008 I hadn't touched any steroids but I went to a doctor to get on testosterone and he told me I was a candidate for a heart attack.. He gave it to me anyway LOL. I have a family history of heart disease plus my cholesterol always ran high and I ate way too much red meat!
Cleaned up my diet and I'm on Lipitor so my cholesterol levels are good but I want to check out this calcium test
