I appreciate your support and will keep you updated. My energy is coming back. Without coffee or caffeine. I am having a difficult time sitting still for too long. I am doing 5 slow squats 3 times a day and walking as much as I can. I don't do dishes yet but I definitely am cooking again. Back in low carb and it feels so good!!!

Hi Suz... Unfortunately "the horse is out of the barn" as my doctor would say. Over the years of high triglycerides caused by high sugar in my system. The plaque that built up in my arteries in lay terms is "hardening of the arteries plaque" This type of plaque stays hard, real hard condensed against the arterial walls. THEN something makes it soften and expand like a sponge closing off the arteries. My blockage in my left anterior was 98%. That required a stent about 8 years ago. Unfortunately throughout my system there are other areas of hard plaque, that's the docs words. SO, will it happen again? Don't know.  I've been taking Buckwheat supplements as a natural way to break down the plaques. That's the claim the industry states... Umpa approved Smiley Anyway, the question of course to the doc was what is the something that activates the plaque... His answer was stress. 

Hope you get well soon.

Hi, Susie.

I really hope the blood test is comprehensive enough to uncover the cause of your inflammation.

Sadly since Big Pharma has its greedy paws all over medical science (especially medical research), it can be very challenging finding a doctor that looks beyond the symptom (cholesterol blockage in arteries which is treated with dangerous statin drugs) to the root cause of the inflammation.

I will continue to pray for you. And I pray that your doctors find the wisdom to find the root cause of your arterial inflammation.

I am dealing through my emotions now, my doctor told me to see a therapist. It is taking patience. I had blood drawn, now need to wait for my doctor to call about results.

Wow that's what my brother said, inflammation. He said processed  foods are a major culprit too. Nitrates, etc. I will bring that up to my doctor.

Morgan is absolutely correct when she said "Cholesterol numbers are only an indicator not a certainty.", Susie.

We know that inflammation (and not cholesterol) is the cause of arterial blockages.
Arterial inflammation makes arterial linings "sticky" and prone to blockage.
So the key here is your docs figuring out what is causing that inflammation.

It just occurs to me that you may have an allergy to something that's causing inflammation.
Perhaps that's worth bringing up the next time you see your doctor.

Thank you Morgan, you just never know what goes on internally. I have a nice young doctor. Told him I have no idea why my arteries are filling up no matter how I eat. I am getting my blood drawn today for further testing.
