A serious circulatory problem in which narrowed arteries reduce
blood flow to limbs, usually the legs. This causes symptoms
such as leg pain when walking.
Smokers and long-term diabetics are at increased risk for Peripheral Artery Disease.
PAD is also a potential sign of a more widespread accumulation of fatty deposits in the arteries called atherosclerosis. This condition may reduce blood flow to the heart and brain, as well as legs.
PAD affects more than 18 million people, most over the age of 50. While serious, this disease is treatable.
The screening is done by measuring blood pressures in each extremity. It will take approximately 15 minutes and you will leave with the test results and recommendation for follow-up, if needed, in your hands.
Limited number of screenings available. Please call 1-800-800-5123 to register.
