What increases my risk for PAD?

Some risks you simply can’t control when it comes to PAD – these mostly involve genetics and aging. However, there are many risk factors that you can control.

Here are some of the most common contributing factors to this disease:

  • Not being physically active
  • Smoking cigarettes
  • High blood pressure or cholesterol levels
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
