Dear Doctor. I hope I am posting this in the right forum.
Thursday, I am scheduled to have this. I am a 60 year old female and am wondering for my age what is classed as normal thickening for a 60 year old. I am reading about various percentages of blocking as we age and am concerned. My GP states if there is blockage he will put me on cholesterol reducing drugs even though the choleterol readings are good.
the LDL is a tad high. If there is a blockage can this be reversed with cholesterol reducing meds or should this be reamed out?
Thank you for your most welcomed input.
