Well, I finally decided to get one of these done, even though the assholes at Kaiser won't pay for it. I'd rather not wait 'til my arteries are 80 to 90% blocked to find out whether I've got any arterial disease, thank you. The test is $495, but the peace of mind it gives me, one way or the other, will be immeasurable.

There's evan a $50 off coupon for tests done before Sept. 30 hehe...gotta love it.

I guy I knew a while back dropped dead of a heart attack...47, didn't drink didn't smoke, skinny, good shape, completely asymptomatic for heart disease, then boom...he's dead.

Stuff like that makes you think...well, it makes ME think, anyway.

Even though I have no family history of heart disease, I do have some risk factors...I'm fat, don't exercise much, and have borderline high blood pressure. Cholesteral levels were good the last time I had 'em checked...and my cardiologist swears my EKGs and Echocardiogram were "fantastic". But what does HE know lol.

Anyone here have this test yet? If so, what were your results?
