    Circulation Problems? Get the Flow Going Again

    Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) can be limiting and often goes undiagnosed. PAD happens when arteries leading to your legs, feet and arms narrow, causing blood flow to slow. PAD doubles your chance for a heart attack or stroke.

    Four warning signs you could be at risk:
    • Cramping pain or fatigue in the legs when you move
    • Numbness or tingling in legs or feet
    • Coldness or color changes in legs, feet or toes
    • Wounds on feet that won't heal

    Screening is the first step

    A simple screening could save your life. An ankle-brachial index (ABI) test is a quick, painless and accurate test measuring blood flow to the limbs to see if you have a problem.

    Sutter Delta offers free ABI screenings on the third Thursday of the month.
