What is peripheral arterial disease (PAD) of the legs?

If you’ve been inactive and unable to walk for a substantial period, you may be susceptible to peripheral arterial disease (PAD) of the legs. In addition, if you experience high blood pressure or soaring cholesterol levels, or if you’re a long-time smoker, it’s possible that PAD may be in your future.

PAD of the legs is a common result of all these issues. This disease narrows the arteries in your legs, thereby limiting blood flow to your vital muscles.
