Is carotid plaque reversible? My left carotid artery shows 50-59% from an ultrasound and just 3 years ago the same test came out normal! How could it build up so fast?? My weight (160) and cholesterol is the same (238 total: 148 LDL, 52 HDL, 199 Triglicer). I had been taking Frova a lot during the last 2 years to help my migraines. Now that the damage is done, I'm on Lipitor (20mg.) and Lavacor fish oil (1 a day), aspirin and folic acid. What else can I do?
