Do I Need a Test for PAD?
Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) is a serious circulatory problem in which the blood vessels that carry blood to your arms, legs, brain, or kidneys, become narrow or clogged. It affects over 8 million Americans, most over the age of 50. It may result in leg discomfort with walking, poor healing of leg sores/ulcers, difficult to control blood pressure, or symptoms of stroke. People with PAD are at a significantly increased risk for stroke and heart attack.
Answers to these questions will determine is you are at risk for PAD and if a vascular exam will help us better assess your vascular health status.
If you answered YES to any of these questions, a vascular exam may be necessary. Show these results to your family physician or podiatrist as soon as you can. Consider following-up with a PAD test.
