In brief: Yes
Claudication is leg pain with walking associated with pad (peripheral artery disease).
Pad, like heart disease (cad), is a manifestation of atherosclerosis. Dietary choices like low sodium , low cholesterol, low fat, and low sugar can help control risk factors like hypertension, high cholesterol, obesity and diabetes.
