Blocked LAD

A CT angiogram revealed 70-90% blockage on my left anterior artey (LAD) .
I am a 50 year old man , insulin dependent  diabetic, CABG (2 vessels, RCA and circumflex) performed 8 years ago. The grafts are clean according to the CT angiogram. I have impaired LV ejection fraction with different methods (echo, cath, CT angiogram) giving different values. The  range has been  30-43%. the latest CT angiogram gave 43%  I was fitted with a medtronic ICD two years ago.
8 years ago I had got stents put in  two arteries. The arteries got blocked again within weeks and hence CABG.  

I am active, go to the gym and in full time job.

Given the above history, what are the options for me ?
Thanks
