About Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)
Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) is a circulatory problem. It is a serious condition in which the blood vessels that carry blood to your arms, legs, brains or kidneys, become narrow or clogged.
PAD affects over eight million Americans, most of them over the age of 50.
PAD may result in:
- Symptoms of a stroke
- Difficulty controlling blood pressure
- Leg discomfort with walking
- Poor healing of leg and foot sores/ulcers
Those who suffer from PAD are at a significantly increased risk for a stroke or a heart attack.
Visit our page on PAD to find questions that you can answer to help you determine if you are at risk for PAD.
