Only 38 but I was just diagnosed with a mild ischemia--blocked artery-- going on many drugs and no angiogram for now.
Mild inferior ischemia diagnosed with a nuclear perfusion (thallium stress test)
No definite symptoms, strong family history, high cholesterol, blood pressure is normal- high.
I'm basically fit, but about 40 lbs overweight... do exercise a lot but still eat too much!! Just lost 7 lbs and trying hard though.
Anyone else here in my situation?
How about max heart rate?
My cardio is overly cautious and anal and feels that going over 120 BPM is a risk.
I've seen many other med journals/papers that reccomend different rates etc.
Any ideas thoughts suggestions?
