PAD is a chronic circulatory condition caused by the hardening of the arteries, which restricts blood flow to the limbs (most commonly, the legs and feet). If left untreated, PAD can result in leg pain, limb amputations, and even death.
Because of the nature of the disease, early detection and regular medical attention is crucial; unfortunately, many people don’t experience symptoms until it’s too late. For this reason, it is important to talk to your doctor about PAD, its risks, and the chances that you may develop this condition.
