Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is a common condition which involves narrowing of arteries to reduce blood flow to vital organs, legs and feet. This can cause heavy feeling, sluggishness and leg pain. Circulation problems can also cause erectile dysfunction (ED) in men.
Risks for PAD include obesity, diabetes, smoking, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
Whether you have foot and leg swelling, burning, tingling, numbness sensation in your foot, We are equipped to perform circulation testing. Annual circulation screening is an important preventative measure to catch circulation problems early before progressing to advanced stage.
If you are over age 50 and have a history of diabetes or history of smoking or if you are under age 50, but have diabetes and other peripheral artery disease risk factors, such as obesity or high blood pressure, you should consult your physician.
Early identification will direct your doctor to recommend treatment to improve your foot circulation and avoid foot infections, foot pain or loosing your leg.
