I have recently been told that my calcium score is at 526.  The cardiologist has ordered a stress test and a nuclear stress test on the same day.  I’ve raised questions with the cardiologist’s office but I am getting nowhere.  I asked about risk, why I have both tests on the same day, is it really all 1 test, etc.  Finally a nurse told me they wouldn’t discuss with me until my insurance company approved the tests and since it was over a week out I didn’t need to know anything until the day before.  I’m trying to figure out if they are more interested in my "condition" or the $$ they are making off me.  As a patient I feel I have a right to know what they are going to do to me.

I am 60 year old female, no symptoms whatsoever.  Cholesterol level 188.  This all came about due to my family practice physician deciding I had an irregular heartbeat.  All came back normal and the cardiologist simply suggested I have the calcium test done.  He was as shocked as I was that my score was so high.

Already following Coronary Disease protocol.  Should I go ahead and have these tests done or wait this out?  Not getting answers from the doc and not knowing really what I should do is very frustrating.  

I’m not sure I want to go forward with the testing anyway if the insurance company denies the testing, but I would like to know what other folks would do in this situation.  

I am also paranoid of taking Vitamin D3 since I was on a very high dose and worried this could have caused some of my issues.  I have started on K2 (MK7) and do not take additional D3 -- only what is in my multivitamin now.  I know D3 is important, but afraid of making my situation worse.

Thank you
Shelby

Other than magnesium, you may need to check your PTH level as well. That’s one reason for calcification as well if # is too high.
