Question I have noticed I am starting to get a crease in my right ear. Some days it appears more defined that others. I had a nuclear stress test in 8/2013 and a Calcium score as well in 8/2013. The nuclear test was good and the calcium score was zero. I am a 45 year old male. Could there have been a significant change in that period of time that would signal a heart disease issue? Is the ear crease something I need to be worried about? My cholesterol level was above normal but not in a high range. My blood pressure is typically 120 over 80 range. I am considered in the pre-diabetic range but not diabetic at this time.
Take a read of the article i wrote above talking about the creases. In summary, even though you have a crease, and it can be a marker of heart disease, you have had much more sensitive tests such as the calcium score and a nuclear scan that have placed you at a low risk category. The best thing you can do is life a good lifestyle, exercise, avoid smoking, and keep very on top of the development of diabetes.
