Atherosclerotic plaque is a living tissue, not a static process. While it cannot be "cured" per say, one can tip the scales in favor of plaque regression, see the regress trial. Plaque is inflammation in the arterial wall, by lowering your inflammatory processes, you can cause regression of plaque. Insulin resistance is a key inflammatory process that needs to be reduced. Treat this & cholesterol.
