Common Diseases > Peripheral Artery Disease

Peripheral Artery Disease is a disease of the blood vessels characterized by narrowing and hardening of the arteries that supply the legs and feet. This causes a decrease in blood flow that can injure nerves and other tissues.

Arteriosclerosis, or "hardening of the arteries", commonly shows its effects first in the legs and feet. The narrowing of the arteries may progress to total closure (occlusion) of the vessel. The vessel walls become less elastic and cannot dilate to allow greater blood flow when needed (such as during exercise). Calcium deposits in the walls of the arteries contribute to the narrowing and stiffness. The effects of these deposits may be seen on ordinary X-rays.

Symptoms may include:
Pain or numbness in legs
Cold feet
Hair loss on legs
Colour change of legs
Difficulty walking

Remedies:
Exercise - yoga, tai chi, massage.
Diet - no meat, no dairy, no fats or oils and no processed foods; see treating with diet and nutrition
