Hi Subhash,

 

A coronary calcium score is used to evaluate calcium deposits/calcification of the coronary arteries. Your doctor may use this tool to assess your heart disease/heart attack risk. If you have deposits work with your physician to outline a plan to reduce calcification and risk. This may include certain supplements, such as omega 3, and a heart healthy diet. Again, discuss the results with your physician.

 

All the best,
