September is Peripheral Artery Disease Awareness Month

Does leg pain keep you from doing the things you love? Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is a chronic circulatory condition that affects approximately 18 million US citizens. If left untreated, PAD can result in unnecessary limb amputations.

Know your risks for PAD:

  • Are you 50 years or older?
  • Are you a smoker?
  • Do you have family members with the disease?
  • Have you been diagnosed with diabetes, high cholesterol, or high blood pressure?
  • Do you have kidney disease?
  • Do you have aching leg pain, leg fatigue, or leg heaviness?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may be at risk.
