Some risk factors for PAD include smoking, diabetes, older age, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
For an assessment of PAD risk factors and symptoms, you can complete the Peripheral Vascular Disease Risk Questionnaire.
One of our vascular physicians would be glad to review the questionnaire and discuss your risks and symptoms at an office visit.
You can lower your risk for P.A.D.
- Stop smoking
- Lower your cholesterol level
- Keep your blood pressure and blood sugar under control
- Get regular exercise, especially walking
