What is Vascular Disease?

A vascular disease is a condition that effects your vascular system, including your veins, arteries, and vessels. Because your vascular system carries blood from your heart to your organs and other parts of your body, conditions that block or restrict blood flow can be serious. Symptoms of vascular diseases include:

  • Muscle Atrophy
  • Numbness in Hands or Feet
  • Otherwise Unexplained Pain or Swelling
  • Wounds that Don’t Heal

If you’re suffering from symptoms like these,
call Middle Georgia Heart at 478-254-2644.

What Causes Vascular Disease?

Like other many other diseases, your risk for developing a vascular disease increases with age. However, there are other risk factors as well, such as:

  • Diabetes
  • High Cholesterol or Blood Pressure
  • Obesity
  • Poor Diet
  • Sedentary Lifestyle
  • Smoking
