Description:

More than 50 percent of those with peripheral artery disease (PAD) have no symptoms.

PAD is a serious condition that occurs when blood flow through the legs and feet is restricted by the build-up of fatty deposits in the blood vessels of the legs. It can cause pain and cramping that can make walking – and life – miserable. In extreme cases, PAD can result in the loss of a leg or foot to amputation. Screening individuals with risk factors is very important to ensure proper diagnosis and treatment.

If you answer yes to any of these questions, you may be at risk for PAD:

  • Are you 50 years of age or older?
  • Do you have diabetes?
  • Have you ever smoked?
  • Do you have high blood pressure and/or high cholesterol?

Find out your risk at our free screening event.
