    I am currently 55. It will definitely hit home the message that we are very mortal... My 10 ft. Tall and bullet proof just became 6' 3" and pass the body armor!

    God is good! And I thank Him for all my blessings. I am very much convinced that my creator and savior has more plans for me.

    If there is no pain or other indication of any problem, what specific tests should you ask your primary doctor to set up for you? At 76 years age, I would be interested to know what I should be asking for to assure that my heart is functioning properly. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I would ask specifically about heart and circulatory functions. My doc found the blockage by echo cardiogram, but that was only performed because I was in the middle of a heart attack. Just talk to your doctors about any concerns, even without symptoms.

    I am on course, have lost 45 lbs. and my labs came back yesterday well within range. Primary was very pleased with numbers. Cardio will see me next month.

    These issues also apply to women as well. This is one area where there is no discrimination.

    I'm 55, too. I think I'm pretty healthy but will take that under advisement. I'm due for a physical anyway.

    I would start with a Chest X ray to check for cardiomegaly (enlarged heart), EKG, Electrocardiogram (ultrasound of heart to obtain Ejection Fraction), Cardiac Stress Test (if abnormal probably followed by a Cardiac Catherizaton) , Labs : Coronary Risk Profile, BNP, Renal Panel....that would be a good start. If you tell them you have concerns they will be happy to order these and more that are specific to you and your situation.
