Causes of Peripheral Vascular Disease

Peripheral vascular disease is a serious health condition that affects over 12 million Americans. People with PVD experience reduced blood flow to the extremities, head and neck. Symptoms of the condition include numbness, tingling, pain and cramping, as well as the development of skin ulcers.

Many individuals who suffer from PVD do not know they have the condition or that they have factors that increase their risk of developing it. As a result, many people with PVD experience an increased risk of suffering a heart attack, stroke and death as a result of their condition. Innovations Stem Cell Center treats patients with PVD and other vascular conditions with adipose fat stem cell therapy.

Some factors that contribute to PVD cannot be prevented or treated, such as:

  • Gender. Women have a slightly higher risk of developing PVD than men. Women in menopause have an even greater risk of developing the condition.
  • Age. Individuals over 60 have the highest risk of developing PVD.
  • Genetics. If you have a family history of PVD, you have an increased risk of developing the condition.

Factors that contribute to the development of PVD that can be prevented or treated include:

  • Lifestyle. Behaviors like smoking and increased alcohol consumption up the chance of developing PVD and other cardiac conditions and increase the risk of developing lung disease and all cancers. Reduce your risk by quitting smoking and limiting consumption of alcohol.
  • Obesity. Being overweight increases your risk of developing PVD by 11 percent. Lower the risk of developing PVD by eating healthy and exercising for weight loss.
  • Sedentary lifestyle. Sitting for long periods of time increases the chances of developing PVD. Increase activity if you are able and cleared by your physician to work out.
  • High cholesterol. High cholesterol is one of the primary factors in the development of PVD. High cholesterol causes the condition known as atherosclerosis, in which the arteries harden due to cholesterol buildup.
  • Diabetes. New research has found that Type 2 diabetes is also a contributor to the development of PVD. Diabetes causes inflammation of the blood vessels and negatively impacts cardiovascular health. People with diabetes who do not control their blood sugar and individuals who are undiagnosed have a higher chance of developing PVD than those who manage their blood sugar with medication, diet and exercise.

How Does Adipose Fat Stem Cell Therapy Help Treat PVD?

Stem cells have the powerful ability to reduce inflammation in the blood vessels, which allows them to operate normally and helps to increase blood flow. When blood vessels function normally, patients experience a reduced risk of blood clots or serious health episodes like a heart attack or stroke. Stem cells also produce a large number of chemical messengers called growth factors. These growth factors help promote the formation of new blood vessels and improve the health of existing vessels.
