Join Me for a Peripheral Artery Disease Online Chat

Peripheral Artery Disease Online Doctor ChatPeripheral Artery Disease (PAD), defined as diseases of the blood vessels outside the heart or brain, affects eight to 12 million people in the United States. PAD happens when there is a narrowing of the blood vessels outside of your heart. The cause of PAD is atherosclerosis, and occurs when plaque, a substance made up of fat and cholesterol, builds up on the walls of the arteries that supply blood to the arms and legs. Unfortunately, individuals with PAD are at an increased risk for heart disease, aortic aneurysms and stroke.

Additionally, PAD can be a precursor to diabetes, hypertension and various other medical conditions. If you get treatment early and take preventative steps, PAD can be managed effectively and does not  have to take over your life. Should you receive a diagnosis of PAD, you can often stop or reverse the buildup of plaque in the arteries with dietary changes, exercise and efforts to lower high cholesterol levels and high blood pressure. You can take control by leading a heart-healthy lifestyle and most cases of PAD can be managed with lifestyle changes and medication.

Join me on Monday, April 25 from 12:30 – 1:15pm for an interactive online Q&A web chat on the topic of PAD. I will be available to answer questions and discuss various topics about PAD including prevention, detection, symptoms, testing, treatment options and innovative new research.

If you are interested in learning more about this topic, you may register online for the live chat now. Spread the word about our education session to your friends who may suffer from this potentially debilitating disease.
