In brief: Atherosclerosis

We treat for atherosclerosis with diet, exercise and statin drugs.
There is no proven treatment for the calcified plaque. If diabetes, hypertension or other risk factors are present they also need treatment.

In brief: Diet and Statins

Calcified plaque in the arteries indicates atherosclerosis.
Risk of progression of the plaque is reduced by weight loss, exercise, smoking cessation, and diabetes and cholesterol control. A few studies have shown that plaque can regress with aggressive management of lipids utilizing statins and possibly some other agents.
