hello. I've been diagnosed with Coronary Heart Disease. Not a surprise, my whole family has had cardiac stents and open heart surgery. My Dr has had me do Stress test, Cardiac Scan, stress cardiac ultrasound, to name a few. He says the next thing we could do is a cath. anybody else getting this runaround? anyone else been told that statins and healthy diet can turn this around and improve it?? sooo confused

      Take your statins to save your heart and get your cardiac cath so you know where you stand.

      I had my heart attack at 37 I'm 40 now one stent in my LAD and two other blockages in rca and LCA high percentages a cath will see ur blockages and percentages.. Crestor safest statin w hair loss issues if it occurs and I'm on Vascepa along with Plavix and metoprolol and nitro as needed. Follow the essylstein diet Cleveland clinic Dr for heart disease it at help I fell off my diet during pandemic and gained 26 pounds you can also get a calcium scan it measures blockages in your heart not as clear as cath but an estimate and no bruises lol it's in a fr scan machine

        @snuz I can’t take statins due to a defect in my RYR-1 gene. I take Repatha once a month and it works!

      I can relate. I also have a family history. My Dad died of heart disease at 55. My cardiologist did a stress test, ultrasound, and found nothing. I persisted and told him my heart felt like a fish out of water. He did a cath and I had major blockage on the left side. The following day he put a stent in and I haven’t had any problems since.
