Peripheral Arterial Disease is a serious circulatory condition where clogged or narrowed arteries cause poor circulation to the arms, legs, brain or kidneys.  It occurs most often in the lower extremities, causing decreased blood flow to the legs and feet.  Eight to twelve million Americans have PAD and, if left untreated, it can be fatal.

Fortunately, today there is a non-invasive technology that can determine the presence of PAD. PAD-net is a test for peripheral arterial disease that can be completed in 15 to 20 minutes during a regular office visit. 

For patients with increased risk factors, including those of 65 years of age or older with a history of diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or smoking, being informed about this arterial disease is essential.  While leg pain and discoloration of the toes or feet are easier to identify clinically.  Testing can help determine whether you have PAD before you start experience any symptoms.
