In brief: Work w/ your doctor

Tx can serve to stabilize the plaque that is present & later to try & reverse it.
It will req hard wk, determination, but you can do it w/ help from a proactive doctor. 1st need thorough cardiovasc eval, then tx plan & follow up. Tx will likely include: no tob, healthy diet, reg exercise, achieve ideal weight, maintain good bp, normal glucose (sugar) & good cholesterol & adv lipid levels & more.
