Common Causes of Vascular Disease

How your vascular specialists in Kissimmee, and Orlando, FL, can help when you have vascular disease

Vascular disease can be complicated, but your vascular specialist can diagnose and treat vascular disease. There are several types of vascular disease, including peripheral artery disease, known as PAD, or deep vein thrombosis, known as DVT.

Dr. Pradip Baiju and Dr. Farshid Daneshvar at Heart and Vascular Care in Kissimmee, FL, provide a wide range of heart and vascular services, including diagnosis and treatment of vascular disease. They proudly serve residents of Kissimmee, and Orlando, FL.

Vascular disease can be caused by a fatty buildup or plaque which clings to your artery walls. The fatty plaque narrows the passage that blood passes through, restricting the blood flow to your organs and tissues.

Arterial clots can form and break off, causing a blockage in your artery, which can be serious and even deadly, causing a stroke or a heart attack.

There are some signs and symptoms which may indicate you have vascular disease. These include experiencing:

  • Deep pain in your extremities, including your arms and legs
  • Numbness and tingling in your arms and legs
  • Weakness and fatigue in your arms and legs

You can do a lot to prevent vascular disease by following a heart-healthy lifestyle. You should:

  • Avoid tobacco use and excessive alcohol
  • Boost circulation by increasing activity and exercise
  • Maintaining a healthy weight to reduce arterial stress
  • Maintain a normal blood pressure and cholesterol levels
  • Eat a diet low in fat and rich in fruits and vegetables

If you develop vascular disease, your vascular specialist can help you manage the condition by recommending:

  • Medication to reduce cholesterol levels
  • Medication to dilate arterial and vascular walls
  • Catheterization to identify and remove arterial and vascular blockages
  • Surgical treatment for severe cases of vascular disease
