5:51 am
introducing the glc coupe. part suv. part sports car. all mercedes-benz. welcome back to mornings on 2. >> well in today's health check this morning we are talking about heart attacks because when you lose someone to sudden cardiac arrest it makes you wonder how healthy it my heart. there are many different ways to measure your heart health. one high-tech test that you may not be familiar with is called a coronary heart scan. it tests looks for calcium because plaque, which is cholesterol and fat builds up in your arteries and then eventually turns into calcium. joins us this morning more on this test and how to stay heart healthy.
5:52 am
what is the importance of this test? and especially if you have a family history. >> good morning. yeah, you know what and that's really a good question because there's always different scans and tests we can do and the question is who needs to do it? when am i going to learn? how do i get my heart healthy? we talk about heart disease being the number one killer. this coronary calcium scan is interesting because it's very quick and very non evasive. you barely have to unbutton your shirt. and it's also relatively inexpensive. it's about $75 out of pocket you pay for. so this tells you if you have this calcium build up in your arteries which is a hardening of the plaque. once plaque turns into calcium you can't make it go away you live with it for the rest of your life but the question is who needs to know about.
5:53 am
there are several risk factors. it's tempting to say that shouldn't we all get it. but we all don't need this scan. if you're at moderate risk. the general guideline, if if you smoke, if you have high blood pressure. if your cholesterol is a little out of whack. if you're overweight. they look at age. they look at gender. all those factors are determined. we know there are other ways to determine what's going on in your heart. there's a stress test where you get on the treadmill. but the bottom line is the reason doctors say you have to know your numbers because that's really the first step in all of this. knowing what your cholesterol is. knowing what your blood pressure is, knowing what your bmi is and that is included. >> and also if we do choose to get these tests are there things we can do about the results when we get this information about how much calcium we have.
5:54 am
