Understanding Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD): An Overview 

Peripheral artery disease, or PAD, is a common circulatory condition that affects millions of Americans. It occurs when there is a buildup of fatty deposits, or plaque, in the arteries, leading to reduced blood flow to the limbs and organs. This can result in pain, numbness, and other symptoms. While PAD primarily affects the arteries outside the heart and brain, it can have a significant impact on overall health.

Unfortunately, many people with PAD are unaware of their condition until symptoms become severe. This is because early-stage PAD often does not cause noticeable symptoms. However, it’s important to understand the causes of PAD to prevent its progression and manage its effects effectively. In this article, we will explore the various factors that contribute to peripheral artery disease and provide insights into how you can reduce your risk.

Now let’s delve deeper into the lifestyle factors that contribute to peripheral artery disease.
