I am a 59 year old woman who exercises vigorously regularly and has good cholestrol levels, etc.
About a year ago in a routine checkup and followup tests, I was diagnosed with a 100% blocked carotid artery on one side. I went to a cardiologist who couldn't understand this due to my really good blood test results, etc. Said it could be genetic which is very rare.
Has anyone else heard of this? I'm terrified that my other artery will become clogged also. (It is fine now)
