Healthy female, 70, walk 3 miles 5 - 7 days a week. Diet is a blend of healthy & junk. Take vitamins & supplements. No problem sleeping. Both parents had heart disease as do both brothers, Mother & brother diabetic. I have no symptoms except borderline bloodpressure, cholesterol and sugar. My Primary doesn't see any problem but I am concerned since alot of heart conditions have no symptoms until the big one. I think I need to have a stress test (never had one), a carotid artery ultrasound, and the new calcium test discussed this am on GMA. I don't need referrals, should I contact a cardiologist for an appointment & just ask for these tests, should I see my primary first for blood work - what tests do you recommend?
