Zero Calcium score, minor soft Plaque

Hi Folks,

First time poster here. Have very limited knowledge in this area. There is so much expertise and knowledge here that i can surely benefit.

All opinions/suggestions are welcome.

Had a 128 Slice CT angio done. Images were extremely good. Had a zero calcium score. It was zero 5 years ago as well. But this time, very minor soft plaque was discovered but no blockages or "stenosis" anywhere. All neck artereries were also clean in the echo I had done as well. My total lipids/HDL ratio is 2.93. My consultant wants to bring the ratio near to 2 or lower so has increased my lipitor to 40mg. he believes he can regress the soft plaque.

Have very well controlled hypertension.

Opinions on what this tells me of CVD/CHD profile over the next few years will be really appreciated.

Am kind of stressed with the soft plaque, talhough was told it was minor in the extreme.

God Bless
