Hi all - I just completed a full round of heart tests (nuclear stress test, echo, cardiac cath, etc). All is fine except for a diagnosis of ectasia. The cardiologist said he'd need to keep an eye on it; wants to see me every 6 months.
So what I can expect, or be concerned about?View Thread
I took a statin for several years when my liver suddenly showing signs of damage. The doctor said my liver was less than 50% functional. We immediately took me off the statin, began a regimen of Milk Thistle, Dandelion Root, Almonds, and low cholesterol diet. After 12 mos, my liver was back to full function and I started Zetia (non-statin). No issues since then.View Thread
