Preventing peripheral arterial disease thanks to knowledge of your DNA

Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) refers to vascular problems in the peripheral regions of the body, such as the arms, legs and feet. When leg problems are experienced during exercise, this is referred to as intermittent claudication. Muscles receive insufficient oxygen due to the narrowing of the arteries, resulting in pain and cramps. The disease can even become so serious that pain is also experienced when a person is at rest.

Peripheral arterial disease and heredity

The risk of peripheral arterial disease is determined to some extent by hereditary factors. To date it has been scientifically proven that a number of genes play a role in this. On the basis of your DNA it is therefore possible to see clearly whether you have an increased or reduced risk of peripheral arterial disease.
