thank you for information. i myself did not think x-rays told anything but the nurse kept saying aorta area. anyway, i am waiting for another test to come back and then further action will be taken on my part. i have started watching my food intake A LOT BETTER this past week, trying to stop smoking and that is making me stress out (but i will win that battle) and since cleaning homes is my business i do get daily exercise. but thank you for taking the time to respond.View Thread
had chest x-ray yesterday; doctor office called today and said "you have atherosclerosis." i asked i'm on med for bp, cholesterol, so what do we do now. was told that this is just old age and there is really nothing more to do. WELL, i am not good on figuring what kind of foods to eat...when they say eat fish does that mean canned tuna? not trying to be funny but what kind of foods can i eat to "slow" this down. i know this cannot be reversed...just need some ideas on the foods...any suggestions greatly appreciated.View Thread
