Do You Have Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)?

Peripheral Arterial Disease ( PAD) is a serious circulatory problem in which blood vessels that carry blood to limbs and organs become narrow or clogged.  It affects millions of Americans, most over age 50.  It may manifest as leg discomfort with walking.  People with PAD have an increased risk of stroke and heart attack.

Warning signs include;
   1) Cramping of legs or calves when walking a certain distance
   2) Toe or foot pain that keeps you awake at night
   3) Pale skin, shiny skin or hair loss of legs
   4) Cold feet
If you have any of these symptoms, you may be at risk.  With an non invasive doppler, my office can help determine if there is a circulation problem
