Not sure whether this is the right place to post, although i'm sure i'll be re-directed if not
5 years ago my mum, who was 65 at the time, went for a life line screening with a company where they indicated she had mile cartoid artery blockage.
They have written to her several times this year inviting her back to another screening, at a cost, and are aggressively using her previous results as a 'frightener'.
I think this is a terrible and disgusting marketing ploy to get people back, and particularly targeted at older people, my mum is now 70, and thankfully switched on!
However, before totally dismissing this, I guess what i'm wanting to know is whether this 'mild' blockage is generally found with people of her age?
She is otherwise healthy, low cholesterol, no heart problems and nothing in the family history to indicate she should be worried.
Not sure what to do?
