The vascular system is made up with 3 components, arteries, veins, and lymph channels. The most common description of vascular disease is usually associated with arterial insufficiency, also known as PAD. This usually is more of an issue as people age, who also have associated medical conditions to include diabetes, hypertension, heart ...Read more
Does peripheral vascular disease or mixed connective disease cause skin discolaration on any area of the body? Why?
Maybe: Two very different problems. Arterial insufficiency (pad) can cause the skin to be pale, loss of hair below the mid-shin, and cool feet. Blue or black discoloration indicates threatened tissue and can result in amputation if left untreated. Any dark discoloration or non-healing wound(s) should be evaluated by a vascular specialist as soon as possible. ...Read more
I know I have P.A.D. but was also told that I have vascular disease as well, what does this mean and could that be why my feet turn red even laying. ?
Red by resting.: Peripheral vascular disease or PAD is a form of vascular disease. When the arms or legs are involved, it is termed peripheral. The nature of the condition is that tissues are being deprived of oxygen rich blood because of the narrowing of the blood vessels to the tissues. Elevating the legs causes an over supply of blood to the starved tissue resulting in the now oxygen rich tissue to turn red. ...Read more

This is generally a benign phenomenon If you have associated.pain you should see a doctor this would be Raynauds phenomenon. Again, generally benign but should be checked ...Read more

Not really: As vascular disease progresses the muscles first then nerves of the leg create symptoms. Initially vascular insufficiency causes leg fatigue and cramps in the calves and thigh muscles. Nerve pain from insufficiency is worse at night and can be so intense it drives patients to seek help. Stiffness may be from something else. Ok to check with your doc. Simple vascular ultrasound will make diagnosis. ...Read more

NO: Coronary artery disease can cause a heart attack, not peripheral vascular disease. "Peripheral" refers to the extremities (arms & legs), so PVD is blood vessel disease that affects the arms or legs (not the heart). Peripheral artery disease does increase the chances that the same individual may have coronary artery disease of the heart, so it is reasonable to screen PAD partients for heart dis. ...Read more
Same disease: Both PVD and coronary artery disease are manifestations of the same disease process, which is atherosclerosis (hardening of arteries). Both are aggravated by smoking and high blood pressure. Both can be improved by exercise, improved diet, weight loss, lipid/cholesterol control and smoking cessation. PVD patients undergoing surgery are at increased risk for heart attack. ...Read more

I am so very sorry for your loss. It sounds like you need a more detailed explanation as to what exactly occurred in those 9 hours prior to his death. You should contact a social worker at the hospital where your father died. They should be able to get you some much needed answers. As far as sepsis is concerned, it can occur pretty quickly and cause death rapidly even if antibiotics are given. The sepsis can spread at a much faster rate than the antibiotics take to work. Again i hope you find answers soon.
Take good care. ...Read more

An interesting study: Some of the risk factors for cardiovascular disease include hyperlipidemia, diabetes, high blood pressure, smoking, older age and family history. According to a study with a serial intravascular ultrasound on pigs after inducing diabetes and hyperlipidemia, plaque started to develop at week 11, and progressively evolved to high-risk plaques at week 36. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20439786. ...Read more
Yes and no: The following dietary rules reduce risk: eat fruits and vegetables 3-5 servings per day. Fiber 14 g/day. Avoid trans ( as low as possible) and saturated ( no more than 10% total calories) fats. One to two servings of oily fish/wk - or equivalent in fish oil or omega 3. 1-2 drinks alcohol per day.

I'm only 29 and I have completely lost erections due to some unexplained vascular disease. Is there any way to cure this?
Exercise: I don't think there are any studies that indicate reversal of plaque build up, but that doesn't matter. The bottom line is that exercise is among one of the lifestyle changes that will help your overall cardiovascular health. As long as you're feeling well and your doctor agrees you should stop debating about it, get off this app/website, and start moving. ...Read more
Peripheral vascular: Peripheral artery disease, or "pad" is a blood vessel condition that is usually the result of progressive plaque build-up within the walls of arteries than leads to blockage of blood flow. It can cause leg pain when walking, usually in the calves, pain at rest in the foot or leg, leg numbness or tinlging, coldness or discoloration of the skin, foot or leg ulcers, gangrene, poor healing of wounds. ...Read more
Yes: There are several medications that are useful for pad. These include the statin medications (for cholesterol), which stabilize plaques, aspirin/plavix- platelet medications, and cilostazol- which improves the distance you are able to walk. None of these medications will eliminate vascular disease once it has developed, but they will all work in different ways to help control or improve symptoms. ...Read more
Medical treatment: If you mean treating the systemic effects of peripheral arterial disease (pad), such as atherosclerosis and particularly with coronary artery disease, there are a number of medications available. If you mean specifically for the symptoms of pad in the legs, most commonly intermittent claudication (ic), Cilostazol has been proven to be quite effective in reducing the severity of ic. Talk with pcp. ...Read more
Don't Smoke: The development of peripheral vascular disease is multifactorial but smoking is by far the greatest risk factor. Other behavioral modifications would be to maintain a low cholesterol diet and to treat any diabetes. Following these three recommendations will help minimize risk. ...Read more
