Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)

Peripheral Arterial Disease, or PAD, is a common disease that affects the blood flow to your arms and legs. Often, PAD is caused by smoking, lack of exercise and poor diet.

Symptoms include:

- Cramping in your hip, thigh or calf muscles after an activity such as walking or climbing stairs
- Leg or arm numbness or weakness
- Coldness in your lower leg, foot or arm
- Sores on your limbs that won’t heal
- A change in the color of your limbs
- Hair loss or slower hair growth on your limbs
- Slower growth of fingernails and toenails
- No pulse or weak pulse in your legs, toes, arms or fingers
- Erectile dysfunction in men
- Many individuals with peripheral arterial disease have little to no symptoms, but most will at least experience pain when walking.

Great news!  There are many treatment options for PAD including simple changes to your lifestyle, preventative medications, and minimally invasive interventions that can improve blood flow and reduce the need for surgical procedures.

Contact your primary care physician today if you’re experiencing any of these symptoms. Your physician will refer you to a cardiologist who can test you for PAD and, if necessary, discuss your treatment options to get you back to your life.
