Hello KS,
Unfortunately it appears that your post has vanished. I will contact our forum administrators and see if they can resurrect it and repost it.
The original post disappeared the day after I posted this one.  Essentially, it said that I have just been dxd with diffuse atherosclerosis.  I am 46.  Have had a number of TIAs in the past and have bad carotids.  My concern is whether or not altzheimer's disease automatically accompanies atherosclerosis.  (?)  Also, even if altzheimer's isn't inevitable, is demential?  I have a 9 year old with special needs.  
If you need more info, I'll be glad to give you more - but mostly I'm worried about my brain deep-sixing.
Thanks.
