PAD is short for Peripheral Artery Disease. P.A.D... is caused by a blockage or narrowing of the arteries in the legs when fatty deposits called "plaque" buildup. In this week's program Dr. Reminga talks about this disorder and how it affects the feet and ankles. He says... "The buildup of plaque causes the arteries to harden and narrow making them stiffer and less able to widen or dilate to allow blood flow when needed. As a result, the muscles of your legs can't get enough blood and oxygen when they are working harder ...during exercise or walking for example. If P.A.D. becomes severe, there may not be enough blood and oxygen, even when the muscles are resting". P.A.D. occurs most often in the arteries in the legs, but it can also affect other arteries that carry blood outside the heart. This includes arteries that go to the aorta, the brain, the arms, the kidneys, and the stomach. Find out who is more likely to get P.A.D. and what can be done to treat this type of patient. Dr. Reminga answers these questions and many more in this week's program. This is an important topic and not one to miss, so... click to listen below.
