Detection and Prevention

Knowing when to seek help can significantly impact your treatment options. Reducing risk factors such as high blood pressure, smoking, high cholesterol and or blood sugar, coupled with a healthy lifestyle and exercise, may slow the progression of peripheral arterial disease (PAD). If you are diagnosed with PAD, you may be at risk for heart disease or stroke.  It is best to seek early medical intervention to prevent complications and limb loss.
