Get Screened for PAD
Quick. Painless. Easy!
The difference between screening for diabetes or neuropathy, versus screening for PAD, is largely in the process and the procedures. Diabetes screenings usually test your fasting plasma glucose level or your oral glucose tolerance, and neuropathy is often tested through timed vibration or superficial pain sensations.
PAD specialists, just like other areas of medical expertise, are looking specifically for the triggers and risk factors associated with peripheral artery disease — while taking into consideration that you may have already been diagnosed with diabetes or peripheral neuropathy.
A PAD screening is typically performed through a patient demographic questionnaire, a conversation about your symptoms, an objective look at your legs and feet. If the screening results in the need for a consult, an ultrasound diagnostic can measure the velocity of your blood flow.
Screening for PAD is quick, easy, painless, and does not require a wait time for lab results. It could also save your limbs, and save your life.
