Peripheral Vascular disease does not only effect those with diabetes. Many people without diabetes suffer from this disease. Diabetes, smoking, obesity, smoking and high blood pressure are all causes for peripheral vascular disease. All of these can cause poor circulation which is what leads to peripheral vascular disease.

Cold, numb, or tingly feet are signs that you may peripheral vascular disease. There are tests that our doctors can perform in the office to determine if you are suffering from peripheral vascular disease. It is important to have these tests done as soon as you notice the symptoms because there could be other serious health problems contributing to your symptoms.
