Women’s Health Week: It’s Time Take Control of Your Vascular Health
In honor of National Women’s Health Week, USA Vascular Centers aims to provide women with the knowledge they need to take control of their vascular health. Women who experience hypertension in pregnancy are at an increased risk of developing PAD, and when left untreated, PAD can increase your risk of developing life-threatening health conditions.
Did you know that 1 in 4 women experience pain or weakness that causes difficulty walking? Sometimes, this pain is mistaken for normal signs of aging; however, we know that this is the most common symptom of PAD. We encourage you to seek treatment before your symptoms progress to a more advanced stage of PAD.
