In brief: Untimely Death
Atherosclerosis or hardening of the arteries is a progressive disease, if it is allowed to continue without any remediation, the arteries will become blocked and, in the heart, this will cause ischemia -becoming irreversible -and ultimately muscle death.
In the interim, one could be sidelined from preferred activities due to angina or equivalent.But you can partner with your doctor to slow/stop it.
