There are many risk factors for Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) and, as with any other diseases, some are non-modifiable and some are modifiable by a patient. And just as with…
We live in a fast paced world where we are bombarded with information and news on a daily basis, most of them trivial, but they still steal our attention and…
24% of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) patients also have Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD).
Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) is one of the vascular diseases which are often asymptomatic, with studies suggesting that up to 40 % of individuals with PAD have no symptoms, about 50 % have symptoms that could be attributed to other medical conditions and only 10 % have classical PAD symptoms.
Peripheral Arterial Disease is a common circulatory problem in which narrowed arteries reduce blood flow to your limbs. When you develop peripheral arterial disease (PAD), your extremities — usually your legs — don’t receive enough blood flow to keep up with demand. This causes symptoms, most notably leg pain when walking (claudication).
Our bodies are supposed to be our temples that we only get one of. So considering knowledge as power, one should equip themselves with the information that enabled them to take care of their body as a proactive measure. Not just that, but this also allows people to recognize any signs of a possible health concern and seek medication and treatment early on.
Blocked arteries, also known as peripheral arterial disease (PAD) occurs when there is a narrowing or occlusion of the arteries, resulting in reduced blood flow to the leg. This can lead to limb ischaemia and thrombosis. Patients with PAD have a reduced quality of life and are at risk of lower limb amputation and even death.
There are several diagnostic methods and tools for checking the health or arteries and other blood vessels in the human body and many of them are not exclusively limited to vascular diseases but are used to diagnose cardiovascular issues in general.
Patients with chronic kidney disease are at higher risk of cardiovascular diseases, particularly coronary artery disease (CAD), congestive heart failure and peripheral arterial disease (PAD).
PAD is an abnormal narrowing of arteries and most commonly, but not exclusively, affects the legs, giving it another name – LEAD (Lower Extremity Artery Disease). It is highly prevalent, with an estimated 202 million people with PAD worldwide in 2010, and it affects both genders about equally.
Daylight saving time (DST) is despite dubious benefits still in effect and each year source of considerable discomfort and even health issues for many individuals. There were many attempts against it, some successful, but none leading to worldwide universal repeal.
Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the leading cause of mortality in the world, accounting for more than 17.9 million deaths each year. Fortunately, there are often symptoms of impeding issues. Find out how you can help your physician identify them before it is too late.
Hypertension or elevated blood pressure is one of the major risk factors for Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) and the single most important risk factor for stroke. According to World heart federation there are at least 970 million people worldwide suffering…
Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) remain the number one cause of death globally: more people die annually from CVDs than from any other cause. According to World Health Organisation’s (WHO) projections, the total annual number of deaths…
