PAD is one of the diseases that can greatly increase the risk of having a stroke or heart attack over time. If you know that you’re suffering from PAD, getting early treatment is essential for preventing any complications and limiting the risk of having a stroke.
The earlier PAD is detected, the better. Early treatments can often be limited to natural things like diet and exercising, and it can also include specific foods and supplements meant to prevent plaque from forming inside the arteries. When it’s discovered early on, the onset of PAD can be pushed back for years, and you might not even develop any serious complications.

The risk of stroke will keep growing especially if you eat a lot of foods high in cholesterol and saturated fats, or if you keep your smoking habit alive. In that case, Colorado PAD treatments can still help, but its effectiveness will be limited by your bad habits.
To ensure that any advanced endovascular treatment for peripheral arterial disease can be effective, it’s important to quit smoking, stay active, retain a healthy diet and avoid intense stress and anaerobic exercises that put a lot of stress on your cardiovascular system.
