Peripheral Arterial Disease [PAD] is a serious circulatory problem in which the vessels that carry blood to your arms, legs, brain, or kidneys become narrowed or clogged. It affects over 8 million people in our country, most over the age of 50.Symptoms mayinclude:

  • Leg discomfort when walking
  • Painful cramping in your hip, thigh or calf muscles after activity, such as walking or climbing stairs (intermittent claudication)
  • Leg numbness or weakness
  • Coldness in your lower leg or foot, especially when compared with the other leg
  • Sores on your toes, feet or legs that won't heal
  • A change in the color of your legs
  • Hair loss or slower hair growth on your legs
  • Shiny skin on your legs
  • Stroke-like symptoms

People with PAD are at significantly increased risk for stroke and heart attack.

If you have leg pain, numbness or other symptoms, call your doctor. Even if you don't have symptoms of peripheral artery disease, you may need to be screened if you are:

  • Over age 70
  • Over age 50 and have a history of diabetes or smoking
  • Under age 50 but have diabetes and other peripheral artery disease risk factors, such as obesity or high blood pressure
