Understanding peripheral artery disease

The Exchange: Good To Go

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - Many of us know that high cholesterol can affect our heart, but it can also impact other areas of our body.

Dr Eanas Yassa from the Spectrum Health Medical Group stopped by to tell us about Peripheral Artery Disease, or PAD.

PAD is a common circulatory problem involving the narrowing of arteries which reduce blood flow to your limbs.

For more information about PAD, Spectrum Health will be hosting a Doctor Dialogue on April 11 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Calvin College.
