Peripheral artery disease (also called peripheral arterial disease) is a common circulatory problem in which narrowed arteries reduce blood flow to your limbs.
Blood flow to the arms or legs is decreased as a result of peripheral artery disease, also known as peripheral arterial disease.
In peripheral artery disease (PAD), the blood supply to the legs or arms — typically the legs — is insufficient to meet demand. Other symptoms, such as claudication, may result from this.
Typically, peripheral artery disease indicates an accumulation of fatty deposits in the arteries (atherosclerosis). Vascular narrowing brought on by atherosclerosis can lessen blood flow to the arms and legs.
Treatment for peripheral artery disease involves physical activity, a good diet, and abstinence from nicotine and smoking.
