Common Peripheral Arterial Disease Treatments

Common Peripheral Disease (PAD) causes the arteries of your legs to clog with hardened plaque, which obstructs blood flow and can lead to very damaging consequences. As the condition progresses, it can cause severe symptoms and be potentially fatal. Early diagnosis and treatment of peripheral artery disease can often save you from these complications, so to learn more about your available treatment options get in contact with Dr. Pradip Baiju and Dr. Farshid Daneshvar of Heart and Vascular Care in Orlando, Longwood, Kissimmee, and Orange City, FL.

Lifestyle Changes

The most common approach to treating peripheral arterial disease is to engage in lifestyle changes that help improve your overall health and that require you to keep track of important markers, like regularly checking your blood pressure, cholesterol, and glucose.

Lifestyle changes involve abandoning harmful habits like smoking and engaging in healthy ones like diet and exercise and may include prescribed medication.

You will still require close monitoring by your endovascular specialist to monitor the progress of the peripheral arterial disease. For many, these changes can be enough to slow its progress and to help improve your symptoms.

Although minimally invasive procedures can become necessary when arteries become clogged, these procedures can restore normal blood flow and prevent many of the most severe complications.
