M.d. Bullet To Heart
52 yrs, doing BP for over a year, paleo for years before that. Went to MD, for physical, hears murmur schedules ECG (heart sonogram). Diagnosed with "Mild valvular aortic stenosis" due to calcification. Stenosis is narrowing due to arteriosclerosis. i am in excellent shape for age--- competitive crossfitter.
Initial reaction was --- can't be true, I'm on the BP Diet!
My cholesterol has been very low in past. Waiting on current test..
Can't help but wonder if it is the butter...I have probably gone overboard while on Extreme Fat Loss diet, eating slab+/ Kerrygold/day.
And, of course, not looking forward to comments from friends/family --- "told you all that butter was going to kill you!" ---are they right? Unfortunately, this diagnosis could put me out of work in transportation until i go through a heart monitoring program.
Hitting the max recommended K2, both types...
Could also be natural aging --- history of heart disease on both sides of family
Too much butter?
