Heart Scan-Calcium Score
I am a 36 yo male with a strong family history of Heart Disease, My father died at age 43 with his first MI occurring at age 36. I had a Heart Scan done last week and got the results. My cacium score is 14.31 with an Area of 7.9 sq mm in my LAD. How concerned do I need to be at this time. I am seeing a Cardiologist to monitor risk factors. I take Trilipix, Lisinopril, and 81mg ASA since my mid 20's and Cardizem CD due to frequent and annoying PVC's. I have recently begun to adopt a Vegetarian diet after reading Dr. Dean Ornish and other researchers. I am over weight at 238lb at 6ft tall and have been relatively sedentary. I am working on that. My lipids are within normal range with use of Meds. Would a statin be more effective for atherosclerosis management? Thanks

I don't really know much about this.  I wish someone does would post some good info.  I did have a 64 heart scan and my calcium level was 16.  The Dr said that was low (good?) I only know he didn't act like it was a bad thing. Like I said, I hope someone comes along and clears things up for you.
