Re: Calcium Score of 8 - Do I need to worry?
8 is a high score and indicates that you are at higher risk of developing CAD.
Just make sure your cholesterol, blood pressure, sugar, thyroids, etc are all within limits, so these things don't start damaging your heart. Eat healthy and exercise and you will be right. Blood pressure and cholesterol are the main things you need to keep in check.
I think the doctor who did the EBCT meant by taking immediate action, that you have your overall health and lifestyle reviewed in order to make sure you don't develop CAD.
