My calcium scores are quite high, but have excellent treadmill performance with no issues shown with nuclear scans. Because of my fitness, I’ve often had ultrasounds, since my fitness leads to some false positives, and these latter tests are always fine.
As for the calcium scores, I am a little dismissive, as initial studies were not strongly supportive of the technology, but the manufactures have persisted in publishing more and more studies to bolster their case, but personally of questionable value, considering what I believe the reason behind them. As for why my calcium might be high, I smoked heavily from the age of 12 to 29, 18 months abstinent, and my diet before 25 consisted heavily of meat, cheese, milk, and simple carbs. Also, I have seen studies showing high coronary calcium levels in committed runners, so I wonder about the causes behind it, maybe related to hormones that kick in when losing weight. Also, I was consistent runner back in my 20’s and 30’s, along with biking, and didn’t transition to rowing until my early 30’s.
In the study, severe hypoglycemia (SH) was recorded in the emergency room or hospital, and I’ve never needed help to eat or recover from LBS, and neve required glucagon. There was a time it was so low, by feeling only, that I was scared I would die, with my vision incomparably blurry that I compensated by figuratively ‘eating the freezer’. I have had lows measured at 28, and although conscious, with sweat literally streaming of my arm, quite conscious and capable of feeding myself.
