Heart conditions that include diseased vessels, structural problems and blood clots.
A circulatory condition in which narrowed blood vessels reduce blood flow to the limbs.
Treatable by a medical professional,
Requires a medical diagnosis,

Chronic: can last for years or be lifelong
Peripheral vascular disease is a sign of fatty deposits and calcium building up in the walls of the arteries (atherosclerosis). Risk factors include ageing, diabetes and smoking.
Symptoms may include leg pain, particularly when walking.
Tobacco cessation, exercise and a healthy diet are often successful treatments. When these changes aren’t enough, medication or surgery can help.


Gangrene is a condition that occurs when body tissue dies. It is caused by a loss of blood supply due to an underlying illness, injury, and/or infection. Fingers, toes, and limbs are most often affected, but gangrene can also occur inside the body, damaging organs and muscles.

Intermittent Claudication

ntermittent claudication is an aching, crampy, tired, and sometimes burning pain in the legs that comes and goes — it typically occurs with walking and goes away with rest — due to poor circulation of blood in the arteries of the legs.

Microvascular Disease

Arteriosclerosis is the thickening, hardening and loss of elasticity of the walls of arteries.
