  • Peripheral Atherosclerosis

Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) s a chronic disease in which plaque builds up in the arteries to the legs. This buildup typically occurs gradually. If allowed to progress, blood flow in that artery can become limited or blocked all together.

PAD is more common in people who are 65 or older, but can occur at nearly any age.

Causes:

Smoking; high blood pressure; high cholesterol or triglycerides; diabetes; kidney failure; and obesity increase your risk for PAD.

Prevention:

Avoid smoking, exercise regularly, take prescribed medications as recommended to control high blood pressure, high cholesterol or triglycerides, diabetes, and kidney failure, maintain a balanced weight, and eat a balanced, low-sodium, low-fat diet.
