I have recently been told that my calcium score is at 526.  The cardiologist has ordered a stress test and a nuclear stress test on the same day.  I’ve raised questions with the cardiologist’s office but I am getting nowhere.  I asked about risk, why I have both tests on the same day, is it really all 1 test, etc.  Finally a nurse told me they wouldn’t discuss with me until my insurance company approved the tests and since it was over a week out I didn’t need to know anything until the day before.  I’m trying to figure out if they are more interested in my "condition" or the $$ they are making off me.  As a patient I feel I have a right to know what they are going to do to me.

I am 60 year old female, no symptoms whatsoever.  Cholesterol level 188.  This all came about due to my family practice physician deciding I had an irregular heartbeat.  All came back normal and the cardiologist simply suggested I have the calcium test done.  He was as shocked as I was that my score was so high.

Already following Coronary Disease protocol.  Should I go ahead and have these tests done or wait this out?  Not getting answers from the doc and not knowing really what I should do is very frustrating.  

I’m not sure I want to go forward with the testing anyway if the insurance company denies the testing, but I would like to know what other folks would do in this situation.  

I am also paranoid of taking Vitamin D3 since I was on a very high dose and worried this could have caused some of my issues.  I have started on K2 (MK7) and do not take additional D3 -- only what is in my multivitamin now.  I know D3 is important, but afraid of making my situation worse.

Thank you
Shelby
