A circulatory condition in which narrowed blood vessels reduce blood flow to the limbs. Peripheral vascular disease is a sign of fatty deposits and calcium building up in the walls of the arteries (atherosclerosis). Risk factors include aging, diabetes, and smoking. Symptoms may include leg pain, particularly when walking. Tobacco cessation, exercise, and a healthy diet are often successful treatments. When these changes aren’t enough, medications or surgery can help.
Staying active and maintaining a healthy weight can lower your risk for diabetes, heart disease and PAD. This can be true even if you have a family history of PAD or if you have experienced health problems in the past. Smoking cessation therapy is also highly recommended for those at risk for developing PAD.
