Arterial calcification may have many different causes, in some cases depending on the location.
Although it is considered by many to be a natural effect of ageing, it can be caused by infection, disorders of calcium metabolism, such as osteoporosis or hypercalcemia (too much calcium in the blood), genetic or autoimmune disorders that affect the skeletal system and connective tissues, open surgery, lithotripsy, or shock wave treatment, to break up and remove stones stones (percutaneous nephrolithotomy).

Our forum is focused on reversal and prevention of coronary artery disease, i. e. arterial plaque through diet, exercise and stress management.

Most studies show these interventions bring about improved flow, but do not differentiate as to the types of obstructions.
