People with bad circulation know how bad it can be. It leads to having blocked arteries which in some cases leads to death. It’s very important to discover some of the signs in time so that you can treat this serious health problem.
Poor circulation is definitely a sign for you to visit the doctor. It can cause the appearance of diabetes, heart problems and problems with the blood pressure.
These are also some other causes for the appearance of bad circulation:
- Greater consumption of fast food
- Sitting too much
Why is it important to have good circulation?
Blood which runs through our body freely is very important for every organ in our body so that we are supplied with some of the most vital nutrients. In case this process somehow becomes slowed down, some of the most important organs become damaged, like our heart or our brain. We can explain this with a simple traffic route: if we want everything to move freely, the flow of cars shouldn’t be stopped by anything.
Pain In The Legs? Cramps? Being Tired Chronically?
These are some of the most common signs of peripheral artery disease.
Even doctors often misdiagnose PAD since the symptoms it offers are really similar to many other health problems. This is a really serious disease, so we have to do everything we can in order to prevent it. We should help the doctor to see every sign we have to experience.
So, what exactly is PAD?
The disease usually appears when the arteries are with plaque build-ups. It is otherwise called atherosclerosis. The plaque becomes hardened over time and the arteries are constricted which chokes our body. The disease usually appears in the arteries within our legs.
- Numbness in legs
- Loss of hair on the legs
- Shiny skin
- Cramping and leg pain
- Slower than normal healing
Use some preventive care measures because none of these symptoms can be noticed or may appear.
