Eat a balanced diet that’s high in fiber and low in cholesterol, fat and sodium. Limit fat to 30% of your total daily calories. Saturated fat should account for no more than 7% of your total calories. Avoid trans fats, including products made with partially hydrogenated and hydrogenated vegetable oils. Prevention and treatment of PAD. American Heart Association. Accessed April 11, 2022. Different cushions are suitable for each level of risk, and your level of risk should be determined by a medical professional. Which Cushion Is Right for Me? High levels of an amino acid called homocysteine, which increase the risk for coronary artery disease

Wash your feet daily. Use warm (not hot) water and a mild soap. Dry your feet—including between the toes—gently and well. Because only half of those with PAD actually experience symptoms, it is important that people with known risk factors be screened or tested for PAD. Having both diabetes and PAD further increases the potential for foot complications. People living with diabetes often have neuropathy (nerve damage that can cause numbness in the feet), so they do not feel pain when foot problems occur. When neuropathy occurs in people with PAD, ulcers can develop over foot deformities and may never heal. For this reason, PAD and diabetes are common causes of foot or leg amputations in the United States. Smoking or having diabetes greatly increases the risk of developing peripheral artery disease.Other things that increase the risk of peripheral artery disease include: While your decision should be recommended by a medical professional, we provide a range of different options to give you a nudge in the right direction. Our choices are organised based on purpose and design, helping you to find the ideal cushion!Hoffman R, et al. Peripheral artery disease. In: Hematology: Basic Principles and Practice. 7th ed.

Gerhard-Herman MD, et al. 2016 AHA/ACC guideline on the management of patients with lower extremity peripheral artery disease: A report of the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association Task Force on Clinical Practice Guidelines. Circulation. 2016; doi:10.1161/CIR.0000000000000471. Get a bad infection in a sore on your foot. The infection can expand into your muscles, tissues, blood and bones. If your infection is severe, you may need to go to the hospital.

People with PAD should also walk at home for a total of at least 30 to 60 minutes every day. The usual prescription is called the “Start/Stop” exercise: Your healthcare provider may prescribe an antiplatelet medication such as aspirin or clopidogrel. They alsomay prescribe cilostazol to improve your walking distance. This medication helps people with intermittent claudication exercise longer before they get leg pain. Supervised exercise programs you do not fit the expected profile of somebody with PAD – for example, you are younger than 60 and have never smoked Claudication symptoms include muscle pain or cramping in the legs or arms that begins during exercise and ends with rest. The pain is most commonly felt in the calf. The pain ranges from mild to severe. Severe leg pain may make it hard to walk or do other types of physical activity. The dangers of PAD extend well beyond difficulties in walking. Peripheral artery disease increases the risk of getting a nonhealing sore of your legs or feet. In cases of severe PAD, these sores can turn into areas of dead tissue (gangrene) that make it necessary to remove your foot or leg. What are the stages of peripheral artery disease?

there's uncertainty about the diagnosis. For example, if you have leg pain but your ABPI score is normal PAD is common, affecting between 8 and 12 million Americans. However, healthcare providers sometimes don’t diagnose or treat PAD enough. Actual numbers are probably higher. How does peripheral artery disease affect my body? Because your body’s circulatory system is interconnected, the effects of PAD can extend beyond the affected limb. People with atherosclerosis of their legs often have it in other parts of their bodies. What is the most common cause of peripheral artery disease?

Peripheral artery disease (PAD)

We have a wide range of medical-quality heel protectors that are designed to provide maximum comfort and protection for users at risk of developing pressure sores. Some of these products are made with 100% genuine sheepskin and are held in place with easily adjustable soft strapping to fit feet of any size. A lot of our heel protectors can be machine washed too, ensuring a long lifespan. Preventing pressure sores in bed Atherosclerosis affects arteries throughout the body. When it occurs in the arteries supplying blood to the limbs, it causes peripheral artery disease.

Harris L, et al. Epidemiology, risk factors, and natural history of peripheral artery disease. Accessed April 11, 2022. Shaped like hollow tubes, arteries have a smooth lining that prevents blood from clotting and promotes steady blood flow. When you have peripheral artery disease, plaque (made of fat, cholesterol and other substances) forms gradually inside your artery walls. Slowly, this narrows your arteries. This plaque is also known as atherosclerosis.For some people with more severe PAD, leg pain may still cause problems in daily life, even after a few months of exercise and medications. In more severe cases, people need to improve their blood flow to relieve pain at rest or to heal a wound. Commonly referred to as poor circulation, Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) is the restriction of blood flow in the arteries of the leg. When arteries become narrowed by plaque (the accumulation of cholesterol and other materials on the walls of the arteries), the oxygen-rich blood flowing through the arteries cannot reach the legs and feet. Pressure sores can develop in anyone who spends long stretches of time lying down, regardless of whether it's due to illness, age or injury. When this happens, special measures must be taken to keep friction, shear and pressure to a minimum, as these are the most common causes of pressure sores. While pressure relief cushions and mattresses are often enough to prevent pressure sores, some people need additional help to protect one of the most at-risk areas of the body: the heels. Pressure relief cushions are normally categorised into four risk bands depending on the risk of the patient developing pressure sores, the severity of existing sores, and the user's level of mobility.
