Peripheral Vascular Disease

Symptoms are often overlooked or mistaken as a sign of normal aging.

Your calf might cramp a little when you’re walking or climbing stairs. Or maybe your leg is just weak in general. What you might brush off as a sign of getting older could instead be a symptom of peripheral vascular disease (PVD), and commonly called peripheral artery disease (PAD). This circulatory condition narrows blood vessels and reduces blood flow to the limbs. Hear about the risk factors, symptoms, diagnosis and treatments of PVD below and take and take the Peripheral Vascular Disease Quiz to see if you are at risk. To learn more, call 405-949-3011.
