Peripheral Arterial Disease

You Might Have Heart Disease in Your Legs

Do you ever experience dull pain or cramping in your calves, thighs, hips, or buttocks? Leg pain is often attributed to aging or past leg injuries, rather than the real cause - Periperhal Arterial Disease, or PAD. Like heart disease, PAD is a build-up of plaque in the arteries, which can reduce the flow of blood to vital tissue. If left untreated, PAD can lead to bypass surgery of the veins in your legs or even amputation of the foot or leg. And like heart disease, PAD is treatable.

Finding out if you have PAD is easy. Talk to your doctor about leg pain.
