Southampton, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/24/2018 -- September is Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) Awareness Month and Shiloh Vein & Aesthetics Institute is doing its part by shedding light on this serious disease all month long. Every year, PAD affects nearly 10 million Americans nationwide and is one of the most underdiagnosed and undertreated conditions that exist today. Ironically, not many people know the signs, symptoms, and risk factors associated with PAD. By increasing PAD awareness and educating its large patient-base on this condition, Shiloh Vein & Aesthetics Institute hopes more people will get screened, treated, and live longer lives.
As previously stated, PAD is highly underdiagnosed, and it's mainly because those suffering from the disease couple their leg pain with growing old or negate the pain as being anything serious. However, this pain could very well be the early stages of PAD and should not be ignored. While leg pain is just one tell-tale sign, other symptoms include leg numbness or weakness, leg discoloration, coldness in the lower leg or foot area, and poor toenail growth.
It is very important if any of the above symptoms are present to see one of the vascular specialists at Shiloh Vein & Aesthetics immediately. When it comes to fighting PAD, the earlier the disease is caught, the better the outcome will be. PAD treatment will vary from person to person with mild cases only needing some daily aspirin therapy, to more advanced cases that requiring an angioplasty or stenting surgery.
