It is also important to protect yourself with proactive screening for certain
vascular conditions. Studies suggest that, by 2024, there will be more
than two million deaths in the United States alone caused by vascular
conditions. Speak with your doctor to discuss any possible risk factors
and whether or not you should consider scheduling vascular disease
screenings as part of your preventive health plan. This could include
aortic aneurysm screening, and
peripheral vascular disease screening.
What Causes Vascular Conditions?
Many different factors can come into play in causing a vascular disease
such as peripheral artery disease (PAD). Some factors may include diabetes,
smoking, age, and high blood pressure / hypertension. Genetics can also
play a role, so it is a good idea to know your family medical history
as thoroughly as possible. Tell your doctor about any concerns you may have.
