Calcium buildup during a major artery outside the guts may indicate a future attack or stroke. According to researchers, People with abdominal aortic calcification (AAC) have a two to four times increased risk of a future cardiovascular incident. The study also discovered that the more calcium in the blood vessel wall, the higher the chance of future cardiovascular events, and that persons with AAC and chronic kidney illness were at an even higher risk than those without AAC.
Calcium can build up in the blood vessel wall and harden the arteries, obstructing blood flow or causing plaque rupture, both of which are common causes of heart attacks and strokes.
Poor diet, a sedentary lifestyle, smoking, and genetics are all factors that contribute to arterial calcification.
