A minute amount was found that can’t be seen by the naked eye of a cardiologist. A computer picked it up.
My hospital doctor told me that this is the same thing that can cause runners to drop dead while running. They never even know that they have a problem. An article said that mostly older women get it who don’t exercise, are overweight, diabetic, have high cholesterol, high blood pressure, smoke etc.
I have had diabetes for 60 yrs, and have normal cholesterol with supposedly high LDL for a person with heart stents. None of the other reasons hold true for me.
Other than that my heart looks very healthy. I don’t think anything can be done about this except for less exercise, and to somehow lower LDL. My diabetes has been very well controlled for almost 40 yrs. after 20 yrs of very poor control when urine testing.
Not a happy camper, but it could be worse.
Diabetes strikes again. Doctor also said that my genetics aren’t helping me since a grandfather died of heart disease in his 60’s.
Now I have to talk with a cardiologist or two and do a lot of research.
