Do you have cold feet or legs? Numbness or tingling?
The American Diabetes Association now recommends anyone over the age of 50 with diabetes get screened for PAD. People with diabetes who are younger than 50 should be considered for screening if you have other risk factors including smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or having diabetes for more than 10 years.
The screening is quick and painless and available in our Imaging Department. Talk to your physician about scheduling this simple screening.
