Should you have a Calcium Scoring test?
Ask yourself the following questions:
- Are you a man over age 45 or a woman age 50 or older, or past menopause?
- Do you have a family history of heart disease?
- Do you smoke or are you exposed to second-hand smoke?
- Do you have high cholesterol or high blood pressure (hypertension)?
- Do you have an inactive lifestyle?
- Do you consider yourself overweight?
If you answered YES to three or more questions, Calcium Scoring may benefit you.
