I have Peripheral Artery Disease: An answer

Can you avoid PAD surgery?

Can you avoid P.A.D surgery?

We received a letter from a middle aged man titled “ I have Peripheral Artery Disease”, after many years of heavy and tired legs a routine check up allowed him to discover this very serious disease. Millions of people are living in danger of a heart attack due to the fact that they are unaware that their tired legs or shortness of breath could be an indication of Peripheral Artery Disease{P.A.D), sadly many are living in danger because of undiagnosed P.A.D.

 

The silent heart attack in the legs

 

According to Christopher Kim, MD Cardiologist at Utah Cardiology with privileges at Davis Hospital An estimated 10 million adults in the United States are affected by peripheral vascular disease and many of them do not even know it. Signs of P.A.D are often missed by patients and doctors, symptoms and signs depend on the disease progress. In milder cases, symptoms could be aches and pains in the legs just from walking or mild exercise. Other milder symptoms include leg heaviness and fatigue, particularly with walking. Addressing the illness early is crucial to avoiding surgery, plaque is a nasty and stick substance which blocks the arteries of the heart, with P.A.D the legs suffer the same plaque buildup which leads to the heavy leg feeling..

P.A.D is a progressive illness, the arteries build up more plaques which damages the circulation; not addressing the illness quickly is what cost so many people their health. PAD develops most commonly as a result of the hardening of the arteries, which occurs when cholesterol and scar tissue build up, forming a substance called plaque inside the arteries. This is an extremely serious condition.

 

Clogged arteries a huge problem

 

The clogged arteries cause decreased blood flow to the legs, which can result in pain when walking, and eventually gangrene and amputation. Surgeries to unclog the arteries or inserting a stent to “open up the arteries” are something necessary in patients. This is an expensive procedure. For many it is possible to reverse PAD without surgery similar to reversing heart disease. Heart disease has been shown to be reversible with a very targeted diet and this is also the case with peripheral artery disease; a specialized European diet has been reversing P.A.D without surgery.

 

 

A diet created specifically for PAD

 

There is a diet created in Europe that has been reversing PAD without surgery, the specialized diet was shown to increase the leg blood flow naturally and stop the pain and is now used in 10 countries
