Detailed Answer:

Hello,

After going through your medical details I understand your concern I would like to tell you, atherosclerosis or plaque formation is a progressive disease. Progression of this can be slow down with the help of diet, exercise, and medication but it can not be reversed back to normal.

I hope this information will answer your query.
