Don’t Ignore the Warning Signs

Common symptoms typically affect the legs and include:

  • Cramping in hips, thighs or calves after being on your feet.
  • Numbness or weakness in legs.
  • Change in color of skin.
  • Colder temperature of leg or feet.
  • Sores that won’t heal.

Controllable Risk Factors

While aging and personal or family medical history are uncontrollable risk factors, there are several controllable risk factors. By managing these controllable risk factors you can help reduce your chances of PAD.

  • Cigarette smoking
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Physical inactivity
  • High blood cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
