  • PODIATIST SHARES THE SEVEN SIGNS THAT YOU MAY BE AT RISK FOR VASCULAR DISEASE

 

 

 

Experts point out that your feet are an early warning system for vascular disease. “Podiatrists are often the first physicians to spot and diagnose vascular disease,” says Dr. R. Daniel Davis, DPM, immediate past president of the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA). Although risk factors for vascular disease can vary from patient to patient, here are seven of the most common, some of which can be managed by maintaining a healthy lifestyle. 1. Smoking 2. Using oral contraceptives 3. Family history of vascular disease. 4. Diabetes 5.  Obesity 6. High cholesterol 7. High blood pressure.
 
If you see a suspicious spot, blister, or wound on your foot or ankle and you have one or more of the above risk factors, make an appointment with an APMA-member podiatrist right away. Podiatrists are the most qualified doctors to care for your feet, ankles, and related structures of the leg and can help you get an early diagnosis of vascular disease.
