Treatment

Treatment for P.A.D. involves lifestyle changes, medication and, in some cases, surgery.

  • Lifestyle changes. These include smoking cessation, regular exercise, and eating a heart-healthy diet.
  • Medications. Medicines may be used to improve blood flow, help prevent blood clots, or to control blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood glucose levels.
  • Surgery. In some patients, small incision (endovascular) procedures or open (bypass) surgery of the leg are needed to improve blood flow.
