					Bad Circulation - Am I A Victim?
There are millions of people around the globe taking treatment for bad circulation, and there are many others who suffer from bad circulation, but not
aware of that. Most people ignore the symptoms or take it lightly and hence fail to diagnose it in time. When the person dies all of a sudden, then only
others realize that he/she was suffering from bad circulation. This is why bad circulation is sometimes referred as a silent killer.Bad circulation, in
medical terminology Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD), is a medical condition which is somewhat similar to carotid artery disease and coronary
artery disease. Bad circulation is caused when fatty deposits are accumulated in the inner linings of the artery wall. This accumulation results in the
blockage of blood circulation. Bad circulation in arteries leads to the kidneys, arms, hand, legs, and feet. Most people who suffer from bad circulation
may have fatty deposits in the arteries of brain and heart. This can cause the death of the patient from heart attack and stroke.Bad circulation is
considered as a serious condition and can result in heart attacks, loss of limbs, stroke, and in many cases even death. However if found in the early
stages, bad circulation may be prevented or treated in the early stages with meditation, drug treatment, surgery, life style changes, or mostly a
combination of all these treatments.Some of the main symptoms of bad circulation are legs and/or feet falling to sleep; cramping of the buttocks, legs,
or feet; pain in the legs; swelling of the legs; tired aching feet; and very low temperature in your hands, arms, legs, or feet. If you feel that you have
some or most of the symptoms then you may have been suffering from bad circulation. It is better to visit your family doctor and take a complete check
up. Bad circulation can be diagnosed by a physical examination, ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging angiography (MRA), and X-ray angiography.
Some lifestyle changes which can help you to lower your risk include controlling diabetes, quit smoking, controlling blood pressure, and consuming low
cholesterol diet. Bad circulation can be prevented to some extend by taking healthy fat free diet and regular exercises.All we have to do is take a good
look at the lifestyle we are living and it should be quite obvious to everyone why this is happening. First of all most people do not get enough exercise
which is a crucial factor in allowing our blood to circulate properly. Bad circulation can lead to heart attack and strokes and if that is not enough all the
fast food and fatty foods most people eat, only add to the problem.Doug Pare is the owner of TrafficHelp4u Article Directory. Read more about Bad
