Hello,

He should follow a healthy lifestyle routine strictly which includes daily morning walks for at least 45 mins daily, no smoking, salt restrictions, no fried items, Mo butter and consult a cardiologist to start medications.

There is no way to remove calcium but we can slow down the progress of the disease.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

My daughter is pregnant with their 2nd child. They did a 3-D ultrasound on her today because I have dextrocardia and they wanted to make sure the baby s heart is ok. They say a bright spot (calcium deposit) on the baby s heart and said this increased the baby s chance of having Down Syndrome. What causes this calcium deposit? Is it hereditary?

I had thyroid cancer and thyroid was removed in March this year. I also had breast cancer in feb this year. I completed my radiation 4 weeks ago. I am 50 and on Synthroid 200. during the day I am very very cold (shivering) and then at times very very hot (sweaty). I feel like my heart beats funny--fast or slow??? Just funny. kinda feels like its shaky...I talked to the dr today and she acted like I was nuts. She did take blood and said she call me next week. Should I be on calcium and vitamin B as well?
