High blood pressure: Three warning signs found in the feet showing your risk

People whose legs are painful or get tired easily or who have trouble walking distances because of leg cramps should have an assessment for peripheral artery disease, said vascular surgeon, Dr Lee Kirksey.

He added: “Current or past smokers, or anyone with a family history of PAD or symptoms of the disease should also be assessed.

“Screening for peripheral artery disease probably doesn’t make sense for a healthy individual without symptoms, who is younger than 60 years old, has never smoked and has no family history of atherosclerosis or heart disease.”
