My Father who is 86, just got his results from a Doppler Scan for his carotid arteries and the results
on the right were 1-39% left 80-99% blockage at the blub. He is on lipitor and his cholestral is now 125
he weighs 146lbs, exercises, eats healthy (fiber,fruits etc) no smoking, no drinking. His Physicial, his Cardiologist and now his Vascular Surgeon say to do nothing since he is and has been over the years asymtomatic. If anyone has some info it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
