The Numbers Don't Lie:
- Americans 50 years or older are at greater risk to develop PAD **
- Smokers are four times more likely to get PAD and have symptoms of PAD than nonsmokers***
- African Americans are twice as likely to be diagnosed with PAD ***
Many people with PAD do not experience physical symptoms.
The need to know your risk for PAD is even greater if you have high blood pressure, smoke, are diabetic, or if you have a family history of the disease. Early detection of your risk gives you the ability to better manage your health.
