In brief: Yes.

Cardiovascular disease is a systemic process.
By taking measures to reduce the risk of heart disease, you are also reducing the same risks that cause peripheral arterial disease (pad). These measures include control of high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol; regular physical activity; and not smoking. A cardiocentric approach is required to reduce the impact on clinical outcomes.

In brief: Yes.
