One in every 20 Americans over the age of 50 has PAD, a condition that raises the risk for heart attack and stroke. People who do experience symptoms, such as pain or cramping in the legs, often do not report them, believing they are a natural part of aging or due to another cause. In all, PAD affects 8 to 12 million people in the United States, especially those over 50.
